    Have always got the impression that something that starts with 'did not suffer fools gladly' lets you know that 'bloke was a **** but I'm not printing that'.

    "if t’batter thinks it’s spinnin’, it’s spinnin’" is a great line and comprehensively explains the career of Ravi Jadeja

    Another excellent article. There is a minor factual inaccuracy at the end of the first sentence of the final paragraph.

    The slightly worrying thing is I did that piece of arithmetic four times and still got it wrong!

    I like the title of the article. Not too flashy or sensationalised

    I would imagine of you were picking an all time England XI Rhodes would go in as the first choice left arm spinner.

    Verity, Blythe Peel and Briggs would be considered but, over all, Rhodes would win the spot.

    People in the game who saw them put Rhodes at the top of the tree as a bowler, some give the edge to Blythe but it's close, Peel and Briggs were more dangerous batsman but Rhodes was sound enough to open the batting at Test level.
