Let’s have another go at spreading rumours – apparently Alex Tudor to Leicestershire? – if we fail to lure the one they call the Hoggfather to Grace Road next year with a year’s supply of dog biscuits and a couple of casks of Marston’s (well, he’s always advertising it, so he must like the stuff) we are thinking of approaching Alex “Tudes” Tudor instead.
Well, hmmm. One advantage of this, I suppose, is that it wouldn’t leave him much time for his hopeless attempts at radio commentary.
(Another sign, incidentally, that cricket is aspiring to the condition of football – we spend the close season discussing transfer rumours. It’ll be Boeta Dipenaar’s excessive wage demands next.)
