Collingwood hits a six under the watchful eye of a heavily disguised McCullumPaul Collingwood, a man of incomparable aceness right now – in fact a man so ace he’s forcing full-grown men to write like 11-year-olds – hit England’s fastest ever fifty at some point in the recent past.

Hitting England’s fastest ever fifty is a bit like being Australia’s most debonair slaughterhouse worker, but being as Collingwood only took 24 balls to reach the mark, maybe we should all keep our eyes peeled for bon-viveur moustache-twirlers amidst the gore of Bendigo abattoirs.

To Paul Collingwood! [Raises empty glass and realises it’s time to stop writing about things from the past that are to be published in the future in favour of more pressing matters.]

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. Who Brendan McCullum?

    Or Paul Collingwood?

    Did he call you fat? Did he accuse your brother of being a nonce?

    Janet, are you taking too many slimming pills again, you crazy thing!
