Sorry Corbs, this thread really should have taken off. Here is one, KP at his very best at Headingley. The bit from 7.40 onwards with Steyn's face and Boycott being nearly speechless for once is priceless.

Haven't had much chance to look but add my endorsement to the principle. Any decent clips that posters wish to put on here to allow for some reminiscing then please do, especially West Indies halcyon days of fast bowling!

And when Test sides picked proper 'keepers....lovely stumping by Knotty off Percy Pocock.

Notable absences from that footage: Boycott, Illingworth & Snow, who all declined to tour for one reason or the other....as top internationals often did with tours to the subcontinent, right up to the mid-70s.

Nice find, Corbo.

Interesting short video showing how stats don't show the full picture. Pataudi lost an eye in a car crash when very young. Who recalls an England opener with the same handicap?

I know it happened to Colin Milburn, although his pomp was a little before my cricket watching time. A sad story in so many ways.

A few years back, I was at a game at Northampton and took myself around the club museum during the lunch break. In one cabinet hung Milburn's enormous England sweater. His name was written on a tag sewn into the neckline....I thought "well who else could it have possibly belonged to?"

Saw Milburn bat for England at Lords. He was a one off. Tried to hit every ball for six.

Reckon he might have fetched a few shillings at today's IPL auctions.

While he never reached the same heights by any means, Alan Lilley at Essex was a player who also pretty much did the same.

He made a century on debut in 1978, but his career never properly blossomed despite some memorable explosive innings. It's been suggested that some coaches tried to rein in his aggressive style. Subsequently worked in adminstration at the club but left under a cloud.

Some way ahead of his time, he would have been perfectly suited to the Blast.

So true. What an entertainer he would have been in 2020.

Oooooh....and Victor Trumper (playing a terrible non-stroke), Big Mo Tate and also a recently retired Bill Bowes in the press box.

That's an absolute gem, Corbo, thank you for posting this. If a time machine was invented, then 1948 is one of the seasons I'd most like to visit, and I'd be sure to have the radio on for Arlott's peerless descriptions. Commentating with a fag on too, marvellous. My favourite ever piece of television remains 'P'tang Yang Kipperbang', such a sweet story set during that Summer, about juvenile love and cricket, decorated by The Master's country brogue.

I love the little asides, on spin-bowling, bat-making and the Lord's printing room. I sat outside its window during my first Cup Final and was seduced by the smell of ink as much as I was by Gooch's thunderous driving. "With Australia 135 ahead, they probably think that's a pretty poor three penny worth"...no, John, it's a Lord's scorecard, it's a historic delight! All knocked out on laser printers by any old clerical bod nowadays, but the Lord's card still retains its traditional proper thickness.


"But victory is the least that men play cricket for, they play it for a host of reasons, ill-defined and hard to see...on school ground, on city street, on village green, they play on. For the urge wells deep from quiet places - in men and in the land they spring from".

Perfect.
