Favorite fielding position

I look good anywhere in my freshly starched shirt, but I prefer slips where I can indulge in my witty banter.

Biggest influence on career

Daisy (see picture) taught me everything I know about milking the bowling.

In the early days (see Changes in playing career) she would also ensure a damp spot on a good length when we were bowling.

 

Embarrassing moments

Daisy running onto the ground at any chance.

Significant change in playing career

Machinery replacing the use of livestock to cut the grass on the village green. 

The smells and sounds  of the farm still take me back to my early playing days
