I reckon Mahmood might get the nod for his pace just can't see us scoring enough runs the Indian pace attack is firing on all cylinders and look at home in our conditions.

Good article by Rob Key.

an interesting take on the cc situation

I'd like to see mahmoud today, but Overton will probably get the nod as the better batter

Yeah got a few bowlers out now but it's our batting that's letting us down.

....then decided it was time to pack it in as it was becoming more of a chore to turn up.

I think the book Not Dark Yet would be right up your street!

I stopped playing regularly in 04 when my daughter was born, played the odd game between then in 2018 I got back into it.
Trouble now tho, I can't bowl anymore and I need lots of nets to play as a batsman. I'll have the odd over if I get riled but it ain't worth the pain when my knee is trying to dislocate itself every ball
I think I'm done now tho, it's so much harder to arrange anything since covid, and it's really a choice between cricket or fishing as both doesn't leave any time for the kids

I quite enjoy repairing bats, and did quite a few alterations for people, usually concaving the backs to get the weight down a bit. I bought a few pressed clefts to copy bats for people too, that's actually pretty difficult as you can perfectly match the shape, get the weight very close but it can feel totally different even when the handle is broken in a bit.

I split my Kookaburra at the bottom with a chunk coming off and saw an advert for bat repairs so sent some photos and he said yep send it up so sent to Wakefield i think it was bat was back within 5 days looking like new and cost 25 quid.
And that was 2015 played 2016 season with it then decided it was time to pack it in as it was becoming more of a chore to turn up.

I had a newbery, it was a mates but he dug out a yorker with it before knocking it in properly and put a big split half way through it.
Thing is, after I glued and dowelled it he didn't want it back, but I rehandled it twice, it just kept going.
Slazenger was a brand I couldn't get on with, all that kit I had fell apart

I started with kookaburra and gray nicholls then had a Newbury and then a millichamp and hall when I played; the m&h was a work of art. Also had an SS from a mate, that was like swinging a small hatchback about!

I'm not sure it was the kahuna but my first sh size bat was a kookaburra, I'd had all gray-nics as a kid. Funny tho, my current, little used bat is huge and really flies when you middle it, but is only 2lb 6ish, I have an old bat kicking about at my dad's place, I think it was a sundridge, tiny edges and you really had to commit and middle it to get one to the boundary but weighs well over 3lb

I had GN Scoop which i bought from the Alf Gover cricket school in wandsworth. I then changed that for a Stuart Surridge Jumbo which was heavy but made me play straight. After that was a Slazenger V12 which i had for quite a few seasons and then i had a Kookaburra Big Kahuna awesome bat. Not many really over 30 years of playing.
