Rob Key is about to become England captain

It's nearly TIMEHe is, he is, he is, he is, he is, he is, he is.

Rob Key is in England’s provisional 30-man squad for the World Twenty20 tournament, which, considering Andrew Strauss’s absence, puts him in prime position to take up his rightful place as captain/king of England.

Most media outlets have taken the Strauss angle. Once again the mainstream media are wide of the mark when reporting on a provisional 30-man England squad. Provisional 30-man England squad reportage is not what it was.

Admittedly, once again, we’re getting far too carried away. We’ve been burned before. But Rob Key is a man who can hit boundaries by just miming a forward defensive shot using the back of his hand and making that bat-on-ball cluck sound. He deserves a place in this squad.

Only one question remains: do we release the Rob Key post of unmatched and iridescent brilliance when he’s confirmed in the final 15-man squad, do we wait until he’s named captain or do we wait until he gets back in the Test team?

It’s too brilliant to save, but it’s also too brilliant to waste on any day other than the BEST DAY EVER.

6 Appeals

  1. I thought you weren’t going to talk about Division 2 players this year?

    I think you’d better do the post now, to be honest. Because otherwise it’ll just go to waste when they give the job to Dimi.

  2. Now now now! While we can all dream.

    Then we can all go into justified dramatic fits of weeping and waling when they balls it up again.

  3. Kent may be in division 2, but Bob plays first class cricket in a division with god

  4. It’s the provisional 29-man squad plus their glorious leader Key. Fact.

  5. Does the inclusion of Key and Patel make it a 32 man squad?

    Just as well it’s being held in this country or they’d have to pay for two seats each on the plane.

  6. I have you in the Vulcan death grip Cap’n Kirk for that slur upon a fine body of man (and Samit)
