I know there's plenty of cricket followers on here so thought you'd be interested in this article. He isn't quite the mild-mannered, genial chappie I thought he was.

Interesting piece. Thanks for putting up.

Despite being a career county man, I've never been able to finger why I've had a faint dislike of the fella. Ronay perhaps nails it in that his persona is a barrier.

The 'nice cake old boy' public school stuff doesn't really translate to anyone below pensionable age

Yes, that's right borebage.

I think Daffy tipped loads of salt on a meal Agnew was salivating over.

Going by that article, no doubt a few C words were lobbed in along with lobbing his clothes

I remember being at Lords for the 2001 C&G Trophy Final against Somerset and the 'infamous' Scott Boswell 14 ball disaster in his 2nd over. He was clearly struggling with his line with all the wides not even hitting the cut strip. He then tried switching to round the wicket and lost his run up.Vince Wells as captain should have got to him sooner than he eventually did to try and give advice. But De Freitas just standing at mid off clearly laughing was a disgrace really from one of your senior bowlers!

I found the ticket for his Test and County Cricket Board Annual Dinner in the post office on Campbell St once. I thought of going and posing as him all night, but it would have been too risky - I would probably meet someone who knew him [8D]

Ball landing off the cut strip is a no-ball.

Can be stumped off a wide

They would chuck him out of The Wheel at Branston for that sort of language.

An awful human and woefully out of touch with the game and it appears the modern world.

Yes Danny Baker did get sacked for something far less deliberately vitriolic. But then he isn't part of the public school set is he!

He opened the bowling with Jimmy Ormond. His first over was relatively fine with just Peter Bowler cutting him for 4. Six of the first eight balls in his second over were wides including five in a row. Marcus Trescothick managed to stretch and hit two other wide deliveries to the boundary for 4's or the over might have lasted a lot longer. The over in the end lasted for 14 balls.
Boswell was taken out of the firing line with figures of 2-0-23-0. Sent to field down at fine leg he immediately misfielded diving over the ball and ending up flat out with a clod of turf on the top of his head as the ball trickled to the boundary.
At the end of the 5th over of the innings a section of the Somerset fans wickedly chanted "Bring on the Boswell,Bring on the Boswell"!
Boswell's day ended later when he was last man out for Leicestershire for a duck!
He had been more or less ever present that season in one day games with Devon Malcolm being preferred in the 4 day games.
In the C&G semi final against Lancashire at Grace Road,Boswell had bowled a career best 4-44 helping reduce Lancs at the end of his spell to 60-6. He had dismissed 4 England batsmen,Atherton,Fairbrother,Flintoff and G.Lloyd.
11 of the last 13 games in the Sunday League had also been won but a last day loss to Notts at Trent Bridge meant Kent won the League instead of us!
Scott Boswell was released at the end of the season!

In that same year (Afridi) we played Yorkshire in a Sunday game, I was match sponsor, We were in dire straits with plenty needed with 2 wickets standing when Boswell took them apart, I think he got over 50 and we won by 2 wickets.

I can actually see it from Agnew's point of view. Jonathan Liew, the journalist in question, has a habit of throwing accusations of racism around. He was the one who argued that Vardy should have been sacked and banished from football forever following the casino incident. To be accused of racism in the current climate can be career-ending, as Danny Baker (who very probably wasn't being racist at all) has recently found out. It doesn't surprise me that Agnew got a bit twitchy about it.

I remember the Kent game at Grace Rd (Nixon played for them) and Alfidi hit a ball that high it was hard to see it. It came down short of a six and plugged, incredible shot.

Boswell and Ormond put on 35 fot the last wicket and victory. I've still got the match ball on a plinth signed by Vinny and Afridi

When I lived in Long Clawson around 2012 Agnew used to live in Scalford (between Long Clawson and Melton).
And his house was bang next door to the King's Arms.
