ICC to investigate shocking three-way tie

The world of international cricket was thrown into disarray today after the ICC's corruption unit announced it was investigating the astounding three-way tie that came about during a game of scissors, paper, stone between England players.



The players in question were James Anderson, Ashley Giles and Darren Gough, who each opted for 'stone'.

The ECB responded to the allegations saying that while there was only a one in 27 chance of this specific outcome, there were also two other outcomes - namely 'all scissors' and 'all paper' - that would equally have aroused suspicion.

The ECB therefore considers this to be within the bounds of expectation for a sporting event such as this and does not consider that anything untoward has occurred.

This is nothing to do with the post (not that this ever seems to be a problem on KC) but last month you posted a link to a competition to win a signed bat. Well, I duly entered said competition, and I have won the bat! I am very pleased.

Well Done Miriam!

All good things happen when KC leaves the country. Coincidence?

Clearly not.

Who signed it?

Was it Rob Key!!!!!!???????????

It's signed by the Sussex team. I think a Rob Key signature may be too much for me to handle for my first signed cricket item. I'll need to work up to Rob Key.
