Just in case you wanted to know what Rikki and Owais did:

Quote:
Obviously not wanting their footballing counterparts to grab all the limelight, not one but two England cricketers were banned in June last year. Surrey player Rikki Clarke and Middlesex batsman Owais Shah were arrested in Loughborough in December 2004. The pair had been caught racing side by side up the M1 motorway at speeds of up to 125mph. Shah was driving a Vauxhall Astra and Clarke a BMW 330Ci convertible. The internationals were nabbed returning home after an England A team get together in Nottingham. Both were banned for two months and Shah, who claimed he was speeding home to see his wife, was fined £800.

You have to be impressed that Shah managed to sustain a race with a BMW 330Ci in an Astra. Two months seems jolly light, doesn't it?

Vermuelen and Asif aren't strictly domestic, but are worthy of a place and in Mark Vermeulen's case, the captaincy. Maybe Jesse Ryder as well. Cronje's demise unfortunately rules him out.

The Wisden obituary for Hylton is written in a subtle way......

Wisden Cricketer's Almanack

Leslie George Hylton died in Jamaica on May 17, aged 50. He played in six Test Matches for West Indies. A fast bowler for Jamaica, he helped in the winning of the rubber against R. E. S. Wyatt's team in the West Indies in 1934-35 when, in four Tests, he dismissed 13 batsmen at an average cost of 19.30. In 1939, he visited England under the captaincy of R. S. Grant, being chosen for two of the Test matches, but met with moderate success.











Footnote 1
Hylton was hanged for the murder of his wife in 1955. He is the only Test cricketer known to have been executed.

Footnote 2
Hylton shot dead his adulterous wife but his defence - attempting to shoot himself but missed - was undermined when seven bullets were discovered in her.

Worcestershire made £359,856 profit last year, and that would have been £70, 000higher if the last two weeks of the season had not been flooded out.

Work on the new pavillion is proceeding to plan, and the outfield looks as though as if it's recovered from last year's floods.

I've been meaning to go to New Road to watch Notts play for a few years but for one reason or another have never made it. There are 2 choices this year - the FPT game on May 4th or the Championship game starting 25th August.

I don't particularly want to visit a buidling site so does anyone know if it will all be done by May 4th?

I think the May 4th game is the first at New Road next season - they have been given time to make sure the redevelopment of the pavilion is complete, so it should be by that date.

The game will definitely go ahead at New Road, but there may be the odd Portakabin on view if the Pavillion isn't quite ready for use.
