Rikki Clarke, Derbyshire

Don’t laugh. We’ll admit it is a bit counter-intuitive, but we’re intrigued.

Rikki Clarke was picked for England at a young age and while he didn’t disgrace himself, his bowling clearly wasn’t international standard, so he’s something of a figure of fun. Last year, both his batting and bowling aspired to ‘not quite international standard’ as he wallowed in underachievement at Surrey.

So, the obvious solution was for Rikki Clarke to go and take the Derbyshire captaincy. Is it change just for the sake of it? Who knows? Let’s watch and find out.

And if nothing does happen, let’s quietly edit the website that there’s no mention of Rikki Clarke being One To Watch and pretend that none of this happened.

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. Well all the pics have to be uploaded somewhere. We’re calling it an archive as of today.

  2. Am delighted that Rikkkkkkkay has escaped from Surrey and is about to lead Derby to glory …erm .. a reasonable amount of success. Keenly anticipating seeing Bianca in her puffa jacket urging him on from the boundary’s edge

  3. Clarke is one of those guys who’s not as good as he thinks he is.

    A certainty for any side being picked where the main qualification is being able to eat an apple through a colender though.
