With a captain who secured a double first in history from Cambridge, has written two (very good) books, and who brought his former Kent captain, recovering from a serious eye injury, a copy of the Economist in hospital, Middlesex have less trouble than most sports teams in throwing off the image of macho stupidity. But then, with a batting line up that includes that skipper, Ed Smith (Tonbridge) Andrew Strauss (Radley), Ben Hutton (Radley), Nick Compton (Harrow) and Jamie Dalrymple (Radley), my local club are hardly dominated by grim-faced professionals in the Brian Close mould.
