There are lies, damned lies and Statistics

Being a cricket fan as well as working with accounts means I’m a fan of ‘numbers’ and statistics. There’s been some disquiet amongst some England fans about the adulation show to Virat Kohli in the last year, a man who sits at the top of the ICC batting rankings for both Test Matches and ODI’s, he’s scored 6613 Test runs […]

Dear ECB – An Open Letter

An Open Letter to the ECB Sirs Who exactly do the ECB and Counties consider as the ‘target market’?  I ask the question because I’d consider myself as the perfect ‘target’ and yet I feel disenfranchised and irrelevant to cricket administrators.  Cricket is a huge part of my life and has been for fifty years.  I played for 25 years […]
