We haven’t forgotten the Nineties thing

It’s just taking a while to put together because there’s so much disappointment to wade through.

Our potted history of English cricket in the Nineties should appear later today and if you’re English, it can’t help but make you appreciate how lucky you are right now.

If England lose their next 12 matches by an innings, you’ll still be luckier than the Nineties England cricket fan, because at least those 12 innings defeats will have been preceded by a few wins.


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. “If England lose their next 12 innings by an innings, you’ll still be luckier than…” – tempting fate, King?

    1. We’ve been preparing ourself for the worst ahead of this series. Haven’t you noticed?

  2. The post-modernism on this site knows no bounds. How can you get people who didn’t experience it to understand the never-ending dashing of hopes of the 90s? By never-endingly dashing their hopes, of course. Promise an article about consistent failure to deliver, then consistently fail to deliver it.

    All you have to do is keep this up for an entire decade.

  3. The site, at times, is taking too long to load. Only at the end it does not load. Tells me connection has been reset. Strange things are afoot, KC. Thought you should know.

    1. It’s been like this ever since 123-reg took the decision to “upgrade” the hosting.

      We know about it. It’s driving us mental. But thanks for mentioning it. It helps to have confirmation from other people that there are problems.
