A couple of times this season on my BBC commentaries with Kevan, I have suggested that we should dispense with the idea that bowlers must not run down the pitch in their follow-through. This is because I think it would scuff the pitch more quickly and encourage spin bowlers.

Generally, this elicits little support (indeed little comment). But in this week’s Cricket Paper Derek Pringle says exactly the same thing. I always thought he was a clever bloke!

I remember standing next to him in the pavilion at Northlands Road after the day’s play, he was enormous!

I saw him last year in the press box – he was enormous plus Donuts!

He is certainly never short of an opinion!
