A challenge for my readers

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!

Darren Gough has retired, Voley.


Would be my 5 guesses. Do let us know the answer!

I think you're right. I'd not noticed Gough retire, and I'd forgotten about Udal completely. There might be a few more about too, but I can't think of any. Has Ronnie Irani gone?

Yes, both Gough and Chicken now work for talkSPORT.

All others I can think of - Caddick, Hick, Robin Martin-Jenkins and others have all retired. Where does time go eh?
