The John Edrich thread

Thinking of old cricketers, what about the twins Alec & Eric bedser ? Both must be past 90 years old now?

There doesn't seem to be any update on this guy's health since he was first diagnosed...trying to work out if he's worth a DDP pick but it seems as if he could carry on for a while yet, does anyone think he's worthing even keeping on the Deathlist next year?

I know John well and whilst I'm not at liberty to disclose any information about his health, I can say with a large degree of comfort that his placement on your list is pointless for the foreseeable future. Please accept my apologies.

Considering he's still 'not out' nearly 11 years after he was diagnosed as only having 7 years to live, you may well be right

Any hint as to when it would be worth putting him on in the future?

As long as there are house fires, there is always a chance...

That is really good news John was my hero growing up and remained my inspiration playing cricket for many many years. Give him our best really remember his 310 for England

Bloody hero this man, along with Brian Close.

While whingeing Boycott was in self-imposed exile ( a lot of very good fast bowlers around at the time!), these men stood up to rocket-paced Michael Holding at his fastest and didn't flinch.

Hope the guy with the scythe takes boring Boycs and gives Edders a bit longer.
