more cricket news

What do Kim Hughes, Alastair Cook and William Back have in common?

Rottnest cricket links: Rotto Bloggo is please to add to (or add to the aggregation of) things connecting the beautiful island and the great game.

In the SMH we read Cook (Test average 42.65) played for Willetton a few years ago.

"The day before one game, he joined friends for a trip to Rottnest Island, fell off his bike and suffered a big gash to his leg. Rather than pull out of the game, he battled on and, batting at No.8, scored a few runs to help salvage a draw."

Admirable. Not as admirable as Kim Hughes (Test average 37.41) on Rotto a long time ago, as we recounted in March last year.

And William Back (first class average 4.00) was born on Rottnest.
