We haven’t totally crippled Durham’s players

Philippe WasabiOur 2010 cricketers to watch list weighs heavily on our shoulders like a yoke of inaccuracy. It’s not been a vintage year, but thoughts that we had cursed the Durham contingent can now be banished. They’ve all come good in the same match. Well, not Will Smith. He’s not getting picked any more. The other three have done okay though.

Phil Mustard carved his second hundred of the season and then hit 51 not out and is therefore doing about a billion times better than his mates.

After 113 overs without taking a wicket, Mark Davies finally came good and finished the Nottinghamshire first innings with the frankly stupid figures of 2 for 10 off 15 overs. He then developed a sciatic nerve problem and won’t be bowling in the second innings.

And Liam Plunkett? Well, Liam’s not going to be wearing the High Visibility Tabard of England Squad Membership any time soon, but 3-66 means he hasn’t been shit in this match at least.


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. This yoke is so weighty.

    Won’t someone help me with this yoke?

    No-one helps you bear yokes these days.

  2. Despite the stupendous figures Mark is of course now out for the rest of the season.

    Liam stood on a drainage cap during warm up, a silly thing to do. There was talk that he may be out for the rest of the season too.

    Phil is still captain and has managed 4 CC wins with the team, still able to hit a ball with a bat and still able to catch. Perhaps he has turned to the dark arts to preserve himself? Unfortunately he has not let the rest of the team in on his secret.
