  3. So Marcus, when you strode out to the crease and the wicket-keeper said “Welcome to Mumbai”, did that affect your performance at all?

  4. Trescothick marveled at the life-like appearance of the Sky Sports android.

  7. Apart from the Cheque and Champagne you’ve won a Far East Holiday for one.

  8. Don’t look now, Charles, but there’s a big black furry thing on your shoulder.

  9. Marcus, the Sugababes are stuck in traffic so we’re going to have to fill in. Surely you know a couple of Wurzels numbers?

  10. Colville: Marcus I have just been informed that England will now be playing all away tests at home. Does this mean that we can look forward to see you playing for England again?

  11. Colville: Charles… Colville. You must have heard of me. I am really, really famous on Sky. I am.
    Tres: Fooled you, do you think I am mental or something?

  12. “Look Tres, I want the same deal as Vaughany. There’s your money. There’s your champagne. Now where is your wife?” *

    *Disclaimer: I do not believe the rumour that Michael Vaughan slept with Mrs Trescothick.

  13. Colvile: Marcus, Geoff Miller has asked me to inform you that you have been selected for the winter tour! You must be very pleased.
    Tres: (starts to perspire) What? I ain’t getting on no plane, fool!!

    Comment by Ben — January 9, 2010 @ 11:36 am

  14. Colville: So, what is your illness all about?!
    Marcus: I am not saying a word about it!

    Comment by Saqib — January 17, 2010 @ 11:14 am

  15. Charles: England are a bit shit aren’t they?
    Marcus: Yes. The batters keep getting out to bad balls. I used to do it a lot too.

  16. So Marcus, you’re noted for your erratic behaviour and poor decision-making under pressure. Have you considered umpiring when you retire?

    Comment by Marc — January 17, 2010 @ 2:39 pm

  17. Charlie: So Marcus how is David Icke these days?

    Comment by Richard Bond — January 17, 2010 @ 4:51 pm

  18. Ok Marcus, who would you rather open the batting with – Susan Boyle or Britney Spears?

    Comment by Richard Bond — January 17, 2010 @ 5:02 pm

  19. Marcus we could really do with you back in the England team so we’re going to set it up for you to Bat from home on a Wii Console!

    Comment by Mark Cooper — January 18, 2010 @ 12:44 pm

  20. Colville: I don’t know about you Marcus, but my legs are beginning to ache having stood here for eleven days while we wait for this silly woman to make her mind up.
    Tresco: They call me Banger, you know.

    Comment by Marc — January 18, 2010 @ 10:51 pm

  21. The bottle and cheque really doesn’t make up for the fact you never got to play for Kent does it Marcus ?
