Whilst recalling a match against Gloucestershire during his Sussex years where the former team was heading for a certain defeat in their second inning, Imran wrote:
'Zaheer came it to bat and immediately hit me for a four. Despite my inability to develop aggression against friends and my intense dislike to bowling at them, one four puts an end to any friendship and the desire to avenge the insult takes top priority. Unfortunately for Zed he still thought I was a friend running in to bowl, not even taking any hints from my slightly longer and quicker run, and foolishly wasn't ready for the obvious. He just managed to get a slight touch of his glove on the ball as it hit him just above his forehead. There was a loud crack as he slumped to the ground and the ball ballooned up to Cheatle at gully. I was so concerned about Zaheer's skull that I forgot to appeal and instead rushed to inquire about his health. I might as well have not bothered because he just shook his head and got ready to bat again. Either I had overestimated my pace or his skull was harder than I thought it was. He gave me an accusing look through his glasses and apologising profusely I sheepishly told him that I would give him a single and try to bowl the other player out. I was to regret that decision as he plundered 200 runs off our bowling to save the match for Gloucestershire. In subsequent encounters I was more careful in making such pacts.'
Can't decide on a signature? Why not Zoidberg?
