Robbie Parrett was along to cheer on the Sunday XI at the weekend, and took his camera with him. He has sent these in:
The first three show Richie looking to go past Michael Holding’s count of 249 wickets. He equalled Mikey’s count with an early one but a few near misses meant the day ended in a tie. The tale of the tape is now as follows:
Category / Parrett / Holding
Player Number : 205 / 153
Overs (Balls) : 1473.3 (8841) / 2113.2 (12680)
Maidens : 241 / 459
Runs : 6039 / 5898
Wickets : 249 / 249
Average : 24.25 / 23.68
Best Bowling : 6-4 / 8-92
Strike Rate : 35.51 / 50.92
Economy Rate : 4.10 / 2.79
We think Mikey has you covered, Richie, but you do have him on strike rate!
We’ll leave readers of this to compare and contrast the respective approaches to the wicket and actions of these two fine bowlers.
Also featured are Jez Connell, (newly dubbed the “Surbiton Express” by said photographer), who has an uncannily similar take off to former England player Barry Wood – http://www.espncricinfo.com/england/content/player/22498.html – footage of him in the first minute of this link for those who need a reminder – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BxaH_nLVB0
The other pictures show Will Thomson letting go one of his rockets and Patrick O’Neill into his spin bowling after a couple of overs of seam up.
