“Kent thought their finances were bad, then they discovered Northants had signed Mr Tickle.” (The Ovenmeister)

Chaminda Vaas appeals unsuccessfully for the first Kent wicket of the second innings (he didn’t have to wait too long after, mind…)

Also in shot, Joe Denly, Rob Key, Andrew Hall and umpire John Steele.

  2. Chaminda, how wide would you have to spread your arms to get them around both Key and Hall?

  3. Chaminda, using your arms as a representation of time, how long has it been since Denly scored an innings of note?

    • NOT going to win with this! And anyway Joe scored a century at the end of March against Lancs in a warm up match!

  4. Chaminda, using the fingers on both hands, if you had to guess at Kent’s second innings score, how many do you think they’ll get?

  5. Kent were so disappointed with their performance they refused to join in Vaas and Hall’s YMCA routine.

  6. No one falls for it anymore, so Hall pulls his own finger.

  7. The Northants attempt at the YMCA dance breaks down again and ends up as AY. It’s tougher than it looks.
