“Can I suggest a whip round to buy him a new hat? That’s what, a tenner? So £2 per King Cricket reader.”


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. Nah, I think you’ll find that “Chris” is actually a cunning anagram of “Matt Prior”… *wink*

  2. After all the money that little hobbit earnt in the ICL, he should be able to pay for it himself, the dwarf wanky wicky.

  3. Reed and his magic hat are earning me lots of points in fantasy cricket – so am happy to see it become as disgraceful as Jack Russell’s sunhat

  4. If I had to play in bright pink with silver stars I think most of my earnings would have gone on rocking back and forth on a leather sofa with a psychologist telling me it was OK, and that mummy still loved me.

  5. I’m feeling the credit crunch, so no two pounds from me, but I will launder the cap for nothing.

  6. I’m a bit strapped too, having paid into the ‘buy Andrew Flintoff a new ankle’ fund.
