Indulgent straw-clutching about Rob Key

Rob Key may have only hit 63, but it was still the top score in the England A v Sri Lanka match. It's a shame that he couldn't have reached a century because people only really pay attention to batsmen when they get to three figures.

Last year Alastair Cook hit an eye-catching double hundred against Australia in a three-day game. That was in a match when three other batsmen hit sizable hundreds though. This match against Sri Lanka was a low-scoring affair and Rob Key's contribution was invaluable.

Who are we kidding? 214 is a lot more runs than 63.

We're part serious. We don't know if you all appreciate that our Rob Key fixation is based on more than just his appearance. He really is a top drawer batsman. We're really looking forward to seeing him in an England cap again.
