Couldn't resist!

Sorry, I just couldn't resist pointing out that England's alleged "wicket-keeper" Matt Prior conceded 35 byes in the West Indies' First Innings of the current test.

Yes, 35 byes.

(Dropped at least one vital catch too).

"Is this a record?" you ask. Well, not quite. But as the BBC's Oliver Brett points out:

"When Frank Woolley gave up 37 byes in a Test innings, not only did he don the gloves at the grand old age of 47, he was deputising for the injured Les Ames!"

Rather puts Prior's ineptitude in its proper context, doesn't it?

Anyone but Read?
