For the want of something better to do, I was googling old cricketers. Found out that John Edrich (former Surrey and England batsman) was given 7 years to live back in 2000 and is still batt(l)ing away.

The John Edrich thread

Thinking of old cricketers, what about the twins Alec & Eric bedser ? Both must be past 90 years old now?

Alec will be 92 on July 4th, by which time Eric will have been dead over four years.



Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg

There doesn't seem to be any update on this guy's health since he was first diagnosed...trying to work out if he's worth a DDP pick but it seems as if he could carry on for a while yet, does anyone think he's worthing even keeping on the Deathlist next year?

I know John well and whilst I'm not at liberty to disclose any information about his health, I can say with a large degree of comfort that his placement on your list is pointless for the foreseeable future. Please accept my apologies.

Considering he's still 'not out' nearly 11 years after he was diagnosed as only having 7 years to live, you may well be right

Any hint as to when it would be worth putting him on in the future?

Bloody hero this man, along with Brian Close.
While whingeing Boycott was in self-imposed exile ( a lot of very good fast bowlers around at the time!), these men stood up to rocket-paced Michael Holding at his fastest and didn't flinch.
Hope the guy with the scythe takes boring Boycs and gives Edders a bit longer.
