Henry Blofeld was on Museum of Curiosities on R4 Monday night and spoke about his heart bypass operation and how he almost died.

 

One to keep an eye on.

Never mind Hobden and Allin being bowled over for 2016, it's John Manners I want to walk back to the pavilion. At 101 he is the oldest first class player "not out". He is in my Deathrace selection so its about time he was stumped and shuffled off to the long room and visited the Lords!

A little late but here is my list of 2015's Dead Cricketer XI

 

Basil Williams (WI)

Arthur Morris (Aus)

Tom Graveney (Eng)

Brian Close (Eng)

Steve Camacho (WI)

Hemant Kanitkar (Ind)

Richie Benaud (Aus)

Clive Rice (SA)

Frank Tyson (Eng)

Bob Appleyard (Eng)

Lindsay Kline (Aus)

 

Vale to all of these men.  I will particularly miss Richie of course, but as I have previously mentioned in this forum, Bob Appleyard had a fascinating life story.

The only good thing about cricket is that you can smash people over the head with the bat and 'accidentally' throw the ball at somebody and cause them harm.

Apart from that its shit.
