He's a good batsman who'll do an excellent of staying at the crease up to half an hour for both his runs. He'll get out if he's got the runs, though. What is true though is that Matt is a bit of a joker in the pile. Shamley Green was the venue during his inaugural year (1993) with the club for one of THE remarks of the season. Our changing room had a lavatory off it with a few handrails to assist the less mobile amongst ourselves. That's right, the bowlers after a couple of overs. Anyway, he looked in at tea-time and said "Have you seen this? It's like a sexual gymnasium in there!" which - unsurprisingly - left all present in helpless fits of laughter.

A couple of steps and here he is at the crease like he's never been away, and indeed he never has, allowing everyone else to field the ball for him. But enough of the bad balls, he's seen the doctor who nearly gave him the all-clear. Matt makes a good change bowler, spinning the ball quite alarmingly and altering the pace of the innings at a stoke. Exactly, the batsman has a stroke as Matt takes his wicket and the game comes to a standstill.
