I answer the question that’s been plaguing the world of county cricket all summer.

Allowing winter cricket since 2010

It’s a fan heater. It’s got heating elements in it.


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 think the slightly misleading hover caption back’s up Bert’s theory.

    I’m glad I emigrated if Winter cricket ha’s started

  2. Now that it is established ONCE AND FOR ALL that it is a fan heater, we’re going to see some interesting field settings from Lancashire.

    “Pitch it up for the drive, Jimmy. We’ve nine men on the deep cover boundary.”

  3. Hi

    Great post – my name is Hayley and I am working for the Barmy Army!

    You haven’t heard from me for a while, so D Charlton is doing my job for me.


    Remember Hayley and her spamming? I miss Hayley.

  4. phew! I was worried KC were leading us down the road of an existential debate about the meaning of life. Thank god it’s just a random film

    btw if The Point is a fan heater, is it finally an acknowledgement that it i’s bloody cold watching cricket up north??

  5. Had one of those in our bathroom once. You could use it for precisely 26 seconds before it tripped the electric for the whole house. It wasn’t very good really.

  6. “…without Ring Starr…”
    – String, you are being ridiculous. Everybody knows that it is Ringo who makes this animated film so appealing.

    The only two other celebrity narrators I can think of coming anywhere near close to the magic of his dulcit Dingle tones are Richard Briers and Arthur Lowe.

    Kirst – were you paid to sneak that apostrophe into your last line?
