Matt Prior imagines keeping wicket to Mitchell Johnson

What is fate there for, if not to be tempted?

‘Hey Fate, come out and play. We’ve got a Bagpuss box-set and a bumper pack of Ryvitas for you. Come on. You know you want to.’

Our point was something about Matt Prior not dropping the ball very often and looking beefily competent with a bat in his hand to boot, but that’s probably going to get lost amid much discussion about Fate’s somewhat irregular tastes.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. While you’re at it maybe a “Freddy Flintoff – Fighting fit and ready to take it to the Aussies for all 5 tests” would be the go too?

    Prior is an excellent keeper, but if keepers were honestly selected for their ability with the gloves then Manou would be selected ahead of Haddin.

  2. A fact about Graham Manou!

    That means our list of facts about Graham Manou numbers all the way up to (1) now.

  3. Here’s another – his partner is Tamsyn Lewis. Imagine her planted in amongst the other delectable WAG’s of the Australian team 🙂

  4. I had to google her wolf, to my shame – but discovered that according to Wiki Manou is her “domestic partner”. Does this mean he does all the housework? If so I would like a domestic partner.

  5. How very lucky you are to have wolf as a source of knowledge about Manou now o King….

  6. I just don’t understand the motivation behind your one-monarch fate-enticement campaign. Starting with the whole Mitchell Johnson thing and now onto Matt Prior. Are you determined to feel powerful by influencing the ashes campaign- for good or, it seems, ill?
