Our toast is dry and the larder is empty. To the jam shed!

This is tricky. Nasir Jamshed’s made a fine start to his career, walloping a 48 ball 61 and now a 64 ball 74. The problem is that both innings have been against Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe aren’t actually a recognised cricket team.

We don’t recognise them, that is. Put the Zimbabwe cricket team in front of us and we could mistake them for a loganberry or a Dyson Airblade. We’d never have them down as a cricket team though. Never.

Even so, you can’t ignore Nasir Jamshed. Pakistan may vomit short-trousered debutants with clockwork regularity, but for every Mohammad Sami, there’s a Waqar Younis and for every Salman Butt, there’s a Saeed Anwar. You just can’t turn a blind eye, or even two myopic ones.

Consider Nasir Jamshed acknowledged, but not yet embraced.


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. He also smashed 182 in the tour match, with 16 fours and 7 sixes. A promising start, certainly.

  2. I’m not sure I can take any more of these strange spellings. Whatever happened to the Mike Smiths and Steve Jameses of this world?

    You knew where you were with those guys. The 1990s.
