  1. No caption coming from me, but just to point out this is ideal for this competition:

    1 – The position of the players.
    2 – It’s Ian ‘Bell’.
    3 – Two prominent features of the picture are ‘4’ and ‘skin’.

    Looking forward to seeing some of these captions!

  40. Warwickshire’s ‘human logo’ photo-op was nothing more than a tawdry attempt to beat Essex to the rights to host Twenty20 games at the London Olympic stadium.

  42. what’s it say on Bell Ends’ Back and then Jim’s Top? Ha! Ha! 4 Skin! Anyone else spot that?

    Comment by mark Cooper — May 14, 2010 @ 9:28 pm

  43. Jim Troughton : Look Ian, I know that the Shane Warne hair adverts have scared the bejesus out of you, but there’s two reasons I’m not going to compare your pate to this cricket ball. Firstly you ask me at the start of every session and I’m getting tired of it. Secondly you’ve still got your cap on you muppet.

    Comment by Shane — May 15, 2010 @ 10:23 am

  44. Ian Bell doubled up with laughter as he realised Sarah had transferred him and Jim Troughton to Yorkshire.

    Comment by Shane — May 15, 2010 @ 10:27 am

    • Haha, oops! Nearly 1,500 views of this photo & you are the first to point that out! Now amended. Cheers, Shane.

      Comment by sarahcanterbury — May 15, 2010 @ 10:37 am

      • Sarah that’s unfair. Now my comment makes no sense at all! Grrrrr.

        Comment by Shane — May 15, 2010 @ 10:40 am

  45. After appearing in caption 14, Ian Bell had started to find his appearances addictive. He’s upped the ante for 15 and is already working on a pose for caption competition 16 that should continue his run. Could either be interesting or unpublishable.

    Comment by Shane — May 15, 2010 @ 10:31 am

  46. @Shane

    Don’t fret! My reply immediately under your comment will make it clear to anyone wondering why you posted that. Annoyingly there can only be 2 replies to any comment, which is why this is here & not above.

    Comment by sarahcanterbury — May 15, 2010 @ 10:45 am

  50. Bell ‘How do you circumcise a whale?’ Troughton ‘You send down 4-Skin Divers’

    Comment by Vokel Yokel — May 21, 2010 @ 7:58 pm

  51. Sarah, how are you going to pick ONE out of all these gemsÉ

    Comment by Purna — May 26, 2010 @ 8:10 am

    • Why do you think it’s taking me so long to decide this one?! Keep trying to pick one – keep putting it off! Ho hum. Will get there eventually…..

      Comment by sarahcanterbury — May 26, 2010 @ 12:11 pm
