Adam Hollioake approached by Essex

The Guardian are reporting that Essex are talking to Adam Hollioake about his maybe playing for them in the Twenty20 Cup. Not a bad move.

Adam Hollioake captained Surrey to victory in the first Twenty20 Cup, he belts the ball around with carefree abandon and bowls about 14 different slower balls.

Before his retirement, Hollioake took 36 Twenty20 wickets in just 14 matches - remember each bowler only gets four overs. He averages a wicket every eight deliveries.

Apparently Essex's situation arises from the probable loss of Alastair Cook and Ravi Bopara for much of the summer. This is exacerbated by the fact that Mervyn Westfield and Maurice Chambers have stress fractures and will be unable to bowl for at least three months.

We're not surprised they've got stress fractures. People with names like Mervyn and Maurice shouldn't be playing cricket. They should be meeting up at the Red Lion on pension day for an amicable game of dominos and three and a half pints of mild.
