The Village Cricketer is delighted with the appointment of Andrew Strauss as captain. He can bat, he can captain, he is sensible, he is not a martian.

Could I ask whoever it is that ends up on this site by repeatedly searching the internet for “Kevin Pietersen naked” to stop please. KP is not naked on this site, and he needs to concentrate on his batting.

The only naked cricketers on this site are Stuart Broad, Alistair Cook and James Anderson, and they did this for the Everyman Male Cancer Campaign, a charity we are supporting through the pre-Ashes charity cricket match between The Village Cricketer’s English All Stars and the Cricket with Balls Aussie Code of Conduct XI in June. Donate some cash here!

To remove any doubt, Andrew Strauss naked is not something you will find on this site, not now, not ever.
