Do you think he's okay?

We missed Twenty20 finals day this year. We’ve read loads of reports, but we haven’t found the most important piece of information.

Who won the mascot race? How did Lanky do?


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. Triumphant !! and accompanied by a galloping Bumble singing OOOO Lanky – Lanky Lanky Lanky Lankysheeeeeer. The rest was anticlimax quite frankly

  2. Surprisingly Lanky won it! Very comfortable in the end for Lanky – Bumble was pleased! But Pinky the Panther (deserved winner / moral victor) was robbed!

  3. The Leics and Durham mascots had obviously been spying on Lanky’s training – they didn’t even bother turning up!

  4. There was no ebb and flow to the mascot race. Instant gratfication sportsnare not for me.

    If the event was held over five days, perhaps it would be a decent quality contest and hold my interest.

  5. And it’s never challenging enough. It’s just about who’s the quickest when really it should be about whether the mascots can get round at all.

    The balance between course and giraffe needs addressing so it isn’t just about scoring an easy run.
