Well done, DM. As Captain Mainwaring would have said "I wondered who'd be first to spot that!"
To throw a few more into the mix, perhaps Joseph, East or even Snow. From the 12 days of Christmas, we could include French (hens),Swan (swimming), Piper (piping) and also the venue - Lord's!

It's getting better. Roy Virgin (Somerset) and Paul Wiseman, a Kiwi who played for Durham.

Not sure about FIVE golden rings, but Doug Ring played for Australia.

With a bit of licence perhaps - Silent (K)night and to conclude with a Yorkshire connection, maybe (Phil) Berry, (Jacques) Rudolph and (Craig) White Christmas !

Merry Christmas everyone.

I received a wonderful gift from my lovely wife: that being a copy of the 1963 Wisden Cricketers' Almanac. Not only is it the much sought-after centenary edition, it is of course a review of the 1962 English domestic season which was my first as a very young cricket fan. Replete, of course, with detailed scorecards and match summaries. It's been on my bucket list for years.

Did anyone else receive a cricket-oriented gift that was particularly enjoyable or interesting?

My son gave me "Summer's Crown" by Stephen Chalke, which has been recommended by a number of posters on this forum. Brief perusal in the midst of Christmas celebrations confirmed the quality of the book.

My son gave me "Remarkable Cricket Grounds" by Brian Levison which is a large format coffee table style book with plenty of good photos and an eclectic mix from around the world. Headingley and North Marine Road both figure. I'd never seen the book on sale beforehand.
