    What is Clown?

    They say that Clown Symonds was born to West Indian parents, but he doesn't really look it. I don't know what he looks like, to be quite honest, other than a clown. Is he black, or part Indian, or part white, or all of the above, or what?
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    I think it's just muck. A good wash and he'll come up like new.

    I actually think that his ancestors might be pirates. I can recall hearing a sea shanty that included an introduction of a "filthy, heavy, bleared scarecrow of a pirate". That description strikes me as fitting Symonds perfectly. He really does look like a scarecrow - of the clown sort. And since pirates frequented the West Indies back in the day, the theory is perfectly reasonable.

    Whatever the case, he's not English. He left England when he was two, and his parents weren't even from there. Furthermore, his nationality is beside the point.

    Yarr, I heartily concur that ye treacherous swab be descended from pirates, or at best footpads, shiver me timbers. The way ye clown-faced bilge-rat did desert ye landlubbers of Birmingham when he were but two years old and t'sun setting over t'mizzen mast for a life in ye penal colony does fill me heart wi' joy an' rum. Aharr, it'll be a cold day in hell afore we see his likes roun' these shores agin, Jim lad.

    You've not seen many West Indians, have you?

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
