Robert Key against GlamorganRob Key‘s 91 ball 107 not out happened 12 days ago. It’s taken us this long to find a prominent expert to comment on the innings.

If you’re thinking: ‘Oh no. Not this joke again. This is getting really tired,’ then stop to consider how successful that means Rob Key’s season must have been. And yes, originally it was a joke. We know it seems unlikely now you’ve heard it 50 times. Anyway, on with the “joke”.

One prominent expert was moved to comment:

“That boy’s hundred was the fastest ever in any form of cricket, if I’m not much mistaken. It was also the most runs scored by an individual batsman in any kind of match.

“If I had a pound for every record that ruby-jowled pup broke today I’d be eating foie gras for every meal. At least I would if I didn’t find its production abhorrent and its taste repugnant.

“Perhaps I could treat that man-ball to a serving of his favourite foodstuff. He deserves no less.”
