Runners-up in the Champions League T20

Is there ambiguity or a double meaning in that title? Certainly the former, possibly the latter, depending how things go for Somerset tomorrow.

We did a piece for Cricinfo, which, on the face of it, is about Somerset being in the Champions League despite being perennial runners-up. That sentence makes it sound like there is a deeper meaning, but actually the meaning is a good deal shallower. The article is actually about two idiots taking a phone call and nothing more than that.

You can read it here.


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. I found that article quite stressful. Why didn’t she understand what he was calling about? Why can’t she do her job properly? My blood pressure has gone through the roof.

    1. She was too busy reading a history book about the battle of Sedgemoor in 1685, the root cause of all of Somerset’s ills

  2. Somerset recently re-enacted that whupping against Surrey at Lord’s.

    At least I assume that was what they were doing.

  3. How does being a perennial runner up interfere with the clt? As long as they don’t go “every game is like a cup finals from now on” they might even make it to the finals. And lose.

    1. You didn’t believe it, did you? I thought better of you, Douglas. The clip is so clearly a fake. I mean, come on – you can see it straight away, for god’s sake. Nobody could do that. There are people standing near to Hayden who don’t throw up on him when he speaks. Is that realistic, seriously? Clearly they have been CGId in in post-production.
