You may or may not know that the one quality we always look for in a piece of writing is brevity. If you have submitted a match report and seen it hacked to a skeleton, you will know this.

Ged has submitted countless match reports. We semi-regularly tell him to keep them short.

Last time we told Ged we like short writing, he responded by producing a 2,500 word report on a match between Warwickshire and Middlesex, told from four different perspectives.

To save innocent homepage visitors’ scrolling fingers, we have published it here.

Send your match reports to king@kingcricket.co.uk. If it’s a professional match, on no account mention the cricket itself. If it’s an amateur match, feel free to go into excruciating detail.


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. Excellent stuff, perfect for a Friday. A bit like Queneau’s Exercises in Style, except he scored 99, whereas Ged only scored 4.

  2. I stayed in Edgbaston once. We went to spearmint rhinos,it was a long time ago, my guess is that there isno mention of spearmint rhino in any of the 4 stories.

    1. I suggest that you read the four stories and decide for yourself on the matter of spearmint rhino, Ben.

      Dumbo the Suzuki Jimny is one of the four authors and he for sure has a lot of rhino about him, as the logo for the Jimny is a rhino.

      My parents got married in Spearmint Rhino on Tottenham Court Road, but that is another story. Or four. Or 99 even.
