The Village Cricketer has noticed a more than vague similarity between the wicketkeeping Sussex and England cricketer Matt Prior and the surreal scorekeeping baby George Dawes, played by Matt Lucas in the Reeves and Mortimer comedy panel game Shooting Stars. In May 2007, Lucas was placed 8th in the list of the UK’s 100 most influential gays and lesbians, in May 2007 Matt Prior made his test debut for England, and was placed 7th in England’s batting order.
