One of the most bizarre mini-incidents I have seen on a cricket field today, when Quentin de Kock missed a stumping due to being stung on the arm by a wasp at the precise split-second that the ball touched his gloves.
Similar incidents, anyone?

A wasp of taste and distinction?

Newly released footage from one of the side cameras has shown the Australian batsman surreptitiously smearing honey on de Kock's shirt and then releasing a wasp from his underpants (wearing a mightily relieved expression).

It was the wasp's expression to which I referred.

Was that completely necessary Tractor? How long did it take to check the 'de's and 'do's were right? Was it worth it?

It took a fair old while, Grocks! Especially when I kept slipping into De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da by the Police. You didn't spend time checking as well, did you? I have to confess, I was singing all the right notes....
... not necessarily in the right order."
Bobs, almost right, but my all-time fave film of all time did not star Jim Rockford.

As the 2018 Wisden comes out today or tomorrow, if someone buys one can they check if the Omani cricket report is in there and let me know the page number if it is. I've had it confirmed but nothing else so I'll wait for confirmation.

Can't get one here and will have 1 at home already which I'd like to tell the cleaner to open at that page to take a picture to see what the editors have done to this year's offering on Omani youth cricket prospects.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can afford one and has a charitable heart. 4th published contribution in 6 years, the 150th in 2013 and now a hat-trick 16,17 and 18.

The years roll on.

Page 1077 - I've tweeted you the pic! (If I had the slightest technical capability I'd post it here too, but I'll probably end up crashing the whole site or something ...)

It's in the mid-section of 'Cricket around the world', i.e. along with Scotland, Netherlands etc and ahead of the shorter bits from affiliate nations.

I would be interested to know whether what has been printed bears any/much relation to what you actually submitted - my experience was always that they tended to edit quite heavily.

Thanks Sheff. I got it.

This is the first time it is almost as written and I'm happy for that because it talks about unsung volunteer work to keep the central national body honest regarding indigenous players. They really are over the moon and are making orders for a book they've only ever heard of.

Made up really.
