Alan Richardson of Middlesex takes 4-7

Who's Alan Richardson, you wonder. Is he some young, up-and-coming leg-spinner or is he a journeyman fast-medium bowler who's never stood out from the crowd?

The first sentence of Cricinfo's profile of Alan Richardson is "Alan Richardson is a journeyman fast-medium bowler".

That's that sorted then.

Normally they're quite generous. We wonder how Alan Richardson feels about being branded thus on the world's largest cricket website.

Alan Richardson took four wickets for just seven runs yesterday. You could concede more runs off two thick edges. In Glamorgan's second innings, he's taken 1-6, so he hasn't got much room for manoeuvre if he wants to improve on those figures.

The profile was written by "Cricinfo staff". I like to imagine the team meeting that was called to discuss the writing of the 40-odd word profile. I suspect there was a flip-chart involved and probably someone taking minutes.
