It was billed as a battle between the Posh Boy and the Essex Boy.
Sky Cricket commentators Andrew Strauss and Nasser Hussain locked horns in a game of Real Tennis at Lord’s – and despite both men having hung up their bats quite a while ago, their competitive streaks remain.
There was sledging aplenty as Strauss – introduced by Bumble as Crispin Trumpington-Farg – and Hussain – introduced by Bumble as Sid Snot – went head-to-head in the ‘Sport of Kings’ in front of a host of beguiled spectators.
However, while Andrew and Nasser fought for racqueting supremacy – and the latter had a few ‘uncharacteristic’ grumbles - Bumble and Ian Ward were charged with understanding the rules of Real Tennis and keeping score.
Not easy with some expensive-looking bubbly lying around…
But who won the Strauss-Hussain duel, we hear you cry.
