Lots of times I was out through forcing the game.
We always had to play the game and play for the team. It is a Kent tradition.
Those were the great days when plenty of amateurs could spare time for cricket.
In the old days we were probably educated in cricket in a far more serious way than now.
I was not depressed when they got me out. I have always taken my dismissals as part of the game.
It was never a policy of the Kent team that the pitch must be occupied all day after winning the toss.
I cannot let this opportunity pass without placing on record how much I have enjoyed my cricket with Kent.
Still, I believe it is only a passing phase and cricket will one day produce an abundance of great players.
It is amazing how the public steadfastly refuse to attend the third day of a match when so often the last day produces the best and most exciting cricket.
Square cuts which ordinarily would have flashed to the boundary earned only two, and I believe that those two innings would have been worth 150 apiece in a county match.
