Am open to suggestions.



This one looks happier, but is a bit too big.

After that the rituals get silly.
I'm terrible when it comes to Hampshire matches, though not quite on the same level as you. If I'm not following a day's play from the start then I don't even bother looking at cricinfo or anything during the hours of play as it will result in the loss of a wicket if we are batting. I also wait until the bbc match report is up, and not look at the close of play board until then. The worst actually is Sky text on tv. Sometimes they allocate the wrong scorecard to a different title (as well as players to wrong teams), so there's always the danger of clicking on what you think will be the scorecard for Derbyshire-Worcestershire in the Pro40, and being greeted with Hampshire's dire scorecard from the Championship.

No he isn't. He's a bowler. His batting could be as bad as Jimmy and still be worth a place.

Is it really five whole innings since Trott made a hundred? That's an eternity by his standards.

It's a shame that for Bopara we can't add in the innings he would have played if he hadn't been dropped for such a long period on account of having been too rubbish to be in the team.

It'd be a shorter list and they'd all be single figures (5 or less I reckon). But knock yourself out.

Why stop there? Most innings without a dropped catch?

Oops, how did I leave Cookie out. Worryingly that was when I was sober.
