Writing for Cricinfo

We did a piece for Cricinfo. Almost inevitably it features Rob Key.

The surprising part is that we had never previously submitted a Rob Key article to them. We have a 100% strike rate when it comes to submitting articles about Rob Key to Cricinfo. They are clearly receptive…


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. Please tell me that’s a nom de plume. I don’t think I could bear your actual name not being King Cricket.

  2. I’m sorry if it’s not news to anyone else, but I can’t normally be arsed to read any actual ‘articles’ on cricinfo. It’s all about the numbers.

  3. We can still quite easily be anonymous even with a name, we’ve realised.

    It’s a gift.

  4. All this time I thought I was a real person, with hopes and dreams and aspirations, but it turns out I’m just a part of King Cricket’s psychosis.

  5. Each of the multiple strands of our personality writes their name with an inital capital letter.

    That’s not us.

    As far as we know.

  6. The cynicism displayed in that article could credibly be submitted by someone by the name Bob Willis if you are looking for alternatives.

    (That is not to say I disagree – I wholly agree with the content and very much appreciate the mumblings of another person called Bob Willis)

  7. Can’t believe they didn’t let you use a pseudonym. After all, they publish articles by some guy called “Telford Vice”, which is clearly a made up name.

  8. Telford Vice sounds like a great name for a bowling sensation from the West Indies.

    “Replacing Vasbert Drakes from the Pavilion End…..Telford Vice”.

  9. It says blogs, you fucking blogger! You’re quite happy to correct us on the matter, but not Cricinfo. Nooo, it’s all, yes Mr Cricinfo, no Mr Cricinfo, of course you can say I blog Mr Cricinfo, ha ha, oh you’re so funny Mr Cricinfo.
