From a colleague: name 5 current first-class county cricketers whose careers began on or before 1990.
At a guess: Cork, Gough, Grant Flower (played for Zimbabwe in 1990), Ramprakash. Any other suggestions gratefully received.
Meanwhile, I'm filling in a reference for a student who wants to do a PGCE through our education school. How shameful that that particular department knows not how to deploy apostrophes. Must try harder. See me!
