  • Good read :-)

    My memories of D I Gower are more a lame lofted off drive straight to Mid Off. That said, class batsman.

    As for Football Rumours, it's great entertainment putting up crap and then reading people take things so seriously......;-)
  • my memories of gower are of him wafting his bat outside off stump and edging it towards the awaiting slip cordon or elegantly cover driving for 4!
  • My memory of Gower is of him buzzing a ground in a Tiger Moth.
  • Gower was not one for shouldering arms and getting bowled.
  • Oh well, not sure who I was thinking of then. Just have memories of someone keep getting out not playing a stroke or getting caught lbw

    Nah, Gatting was always LBW with his bat in the air.

    I shouldered arms against Ashford's overseas pro, an Aussie fast bowler, for Blackheath CC in a Kent League match in 1985 and lost my off stump. Maybe that is AFKA's memory.

  • cricket zzzzzzzzzzzz

    anyway, good article dan.

    Yep. He ALWAYS seemed to get out lazilly strolling forward and edging the ball into the seven man slip cordon.
  • Have just read it.  Really enjoyed it and my short attention span lasted the whole way through.

    Make sure you "Rate It" folks.  else they might not ask him back again.
  • I think Gower was more noted for keeping the slip cordon in business rather than seeing his off-peg get flattened.
