Deep backward square leg dons the wicketkeeping gloves in anticipationMitchell Johnson was allowed seven whole overs against Northamptonshire and didn’t bowl a single wide. Sure, he didn’t take any wickets, but when you’re up against batsmen like Alex Wakely and Riki Wessels, it’s bound to be tough for a bowler.

Johnson’s got a really good chance of hitting the sightscreen behind him if he bowls in the next Test. He should probably start bowling underarm quite soon.


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. You spoke too soon – he bowled a wide in the second innings. Took a wicket though, and only went for 5.82 an over. Looks like he’s found top form, but probably peaked.

  2. I played a demo of that ‘Ashes Cricket 2009’ game over the weekend. I was amazed to find that Mitch managed to hit the cut strip on more than one occasion!
