Tim Bresnan falls between two stools

Not really cycling.

And not cricket either.

He gets one point for trying to broaden his horizons. Zero points for execution.


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 am not entirely sure – Tim Bresnan does look like a man who is likely to fall off a stationary bike.

  1. One of my favourite impromptu cricket experiences was in the high hills of Yunnan province in China, written up and published a couple of years ago on this very site:


    Had I slipped over on the zho dung laden ground described in that piece, I suppose you could have headlined it “Ged Ladd Falls Between Two Stools”.

    It’s raining, it’s getting dark, I’ve still got work to do, I wanted some brief distraction…

  2. I went to Edgbaston today. The highlight was when the 11-year-old girl who was mascot for the day announced that her favourite player was Tim Bresnan.

    It rained. Then we had beer and a curry.

    How’s that?

    1. I feel short changed.

      That superb match report could have been a whole piece, rather than merely an appeal on someone else’s piece.

      But I suspect you feel more short changed than me, today, Sam, even though you got your money back.

      I have been there many times. I truly empathise. And I know that doesn’t make it feel any better.
