Mohammad Yousuf was banned for life and then retired

But he seems okay. It reminds us of the immortal tagline of the entertainingly ludicrous Crank: High Voltage – “He was dead… but he got better.”

You can ban Mohammad Yousuf for life and he can retire, but it doesn’t matter, he’ll still be there scoring runs in a Test match.


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. Perhaps he was temporarily banned for life and temporarily retired for tax reasons, a bit like Hotblack Desiato in Hitchhikers who spent a year dead for tax reasons.

  2. A colleague at work did a statsguru analysis pre and post beard. His batting has improved no end, but his catching has gone downhill from nearly a catch per match to about one in three.

  3. Is that one of Statsguru’s drop down options? Test batting average; when batting first; all matches at home; with beard.

    If not, it really, really needs to be.

  4. I find it sad that there aren’t more moustaches in test cricket, and in this respect I feel that Yousuf is taking the piss a little bit.
