Our latest Cricinfo piece is picking up rave reviews.

  • cud hav been more funnier!!!
  • Extremely lame. Nothing to laugh at all
  • who is Alex Bowden? I am sure ppl will remember Murali long after him

We thought it was one of the better ones. Have a read, see what you think.


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. “Sorry, but this isn’t very funny. The writer could’ve made it so much funnier than this.”

  2. The Comments Section is the gift that keeps on giving. I’ve taken to skipping the article entirely, and just reading the comedy-writing advice in the comments. Comedy is a serious business, even for the audience it would seem.

    If you had full editorial control over your articles you could write something really strange, say a list of fruit, just to see how the commenters would react. I suspect they would react with advice on how a list of fruit could be made funnier, by introducing melons earlier in the list, for example.

  3. They’re very serious about this, aren’t they? Do these people know that internet humour is to be had outside of the cricinfo website? Can they really not find videos of teenagers falling off skateboards? Ski jumping accidents? Amusing graffiti? Pictures of things that look phallic?

  4. Andy Zaltzman called and left a message. Says you missed the comedy writing 101 classes for the past 2 months

    1. We were particularly upset about that one, because we know Andy and he hadn’t even told us he was holding Comedy Writing 101 in the first place.

      We’re livid.

  5. “this article have noting to laugh, lets see after the series who will be realy end on funny side,, after end of the England tour”

    This was my favorite, the double comma is something I shall use more often.

  6. The internet seems to be filled with two very different kinds of people: those who express outrage for absolutely no reason, and those who express condescension at those who express outrage.

    But the few assholes who make such sweeping judgments are the real problem.
