A comment on this post deserves wider exposure.

Viagogo appeared to conclude that they were only selling more cricket tickets to women because some England players are good looking.

We asked our female readers whether they were buying tickets in order to ogle Jimmy Anderson while he stands at fine leg on the far side of the ground.

Female Cricket Fan said:

“Jimmy Anderson doesn’t field at fine leg.”

Case closed.


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. The question is not whether women go to the cricket to goggle at the players.it’s why men who go to the cricket are so much more interested in the players than th women there.
