Sir, In 1972, aged 10, I attended my first day of Test cricket, the Saturday of the Lord's Test versus Australia. Bob Massie finished the match with 16 England wickets.

On Monday, 31 August, after an absence of 26 years, I attended my second day of Test cricket. Muttiah Muralitharan finished the match with 16 England wickets.

In return for a modest annual payment, I am prepared to stay away from all future England Test matches.



PS: Readers may be relieved to know I wasn't entirely lost to cricket in the intervening years.

In 1979 (Latymer v Tiffin) I got Alec Stewart out fifth ball.
