Submitted by Rick Eyre on February 1, 2017 - 10:45pm

MIchael Angelow is often regarded as cricket's first streaker, but there was at least one earlier televised instance of an unclad pitch invasion. I know this because I was watching at the time. To my knowledge there is no other record of this incident anywhere on the internet.

Clive Rice and the game when he was the best of the best

Submitted by Rick Eyre on July 30, 2015 - 7:41am

Clive Rice has died at the age of 66 after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was one of cricket's greatest all-rounders in an era of truly great all-rounders. But unlike Ian Botham, Imran Khan, Kapil Dev and Richard Hadlee, Rice's achievements register barely a blip on the international cricket radar.

Trevor Bayliss is one of those rare breed of New South Wales cricketers - one who never seriously threatened for Australian selection! A consistent batsman in Sheffield Shield cricket over a number of years while the Waughs, Taylors and Bevans were spending much of their time away on Test or one-day duty.

Richie Benaud 1930-2015

Submitted by Rick Eyre on April 11, 2015 - 10:17am

Richie Benaud meant so much to so many people, and despite his extreme modesty you know he accepted the good humour of it all. And unlike many of his contemporary ex-player-turned-commentators, you could never accuse him of being a curmudgeon.
