We have a not-so-serious point to make

It’s not really a point. In fact, several of the commenters on our latest Cricinfo piece say it just sort of tails off.

It’s a fictional Pakistan team meeting, if that makes you more or less likely to click through and have a read.


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. To be honest, KC, I’m a little bit bored of parodied dressing room conversations, faked diaries etc. on Cricinfo page 2. They are turning into the knock-knock joke of cricket humour. You will probably now count them up and tell me there haven’t actually been very many, but that would sort of prove my point. I feel similarly about 20-20. Quite good fun when you first see it, but after you see 1/2 dozen you realise there is no real narrative to them, if you will excuse the lame over extended metaphor.

  2. No, it’s a valid criticism and you didn’t just say “I thought it was shit” without giving a reason, like a lot of people do. To be honest, we’re inclined to agree with you.

    And don’t worry about offending us. Anyone thin-skinned shouldn’t run their own website.

  3. With a pregnant wife at the moment I am rather sensitive about offending people (we had serious drama tonight about running out of risotto rice). I’m relieved I won’t need to jog down to Morrisson’s to buy you groceries and flowers. Sorry if I implied your skin is thin. Bollocks. Done it again.

  4. Why would you allow a situation to arise where there was insufficient risotto rice?

    Why would you do such a thing?
