The last over

Belatedly, I have uploaded the last of the cricket poems into the Ten10 tales section of this site. I’ve not had time to upload scorecards, but I found a cool picture of Virginia Woolf for anyone interested.

I hope you enjoy these poems.

Man of the Match

The Heckling of TS Eliot

The Game Carried On

Reaching the lower order

Getting towards the end of the poems that I wrote for the Ten10 project. I’ve put 3 more up tonight. They combine a heady mix of cherry cake, ephemera and 1950’s mechanical calculators.

Cricket Teas with the Archbishops
Ephemera
Matchfixing

Back with more cricket poems

After a week’s break, where I have been amongst other things watching actual cricket, here are two more poems to add to the Ten10 tales collection.

Queen Victoria Scored 111 not out
The back of the Innisfree Pavillion

If you’d like to read everything posted so far, it’s all linked to the Ten10 tales page.

Ten10 records and statistics

I have added a PDF file to the Ten10 archive which provides a collection of records and statistics for the Ten10 league, for those who like their imaginary cricket to be a little more immersive.

You can access the file through the Ten10 tales page, or by clicking on the link below.

Further Ten10 tales

I’ve added a bit more onto the Ten10 tales part of the site again.

There is a poem describing Winston Churchill wicketkeeping for the Prime Ministers XI.

There is also a copy of the London Sentinel liveblog for the Season 3 final match between the Archbishops of Canterbury and The Great Composers.

Hope you find something to like in both.

More Cricket Poems

Today, I am adding two further imaginary cricket poems to the collection of Ten10 tales. They are:

Mrs Line and Length – about a slump in form for Queen Elizabeth II
The Children’s Television Allstars Franchise is Revoked

Hope that you find something to like in them. Will post more soon.
