Matt Richaens

History tells us that the pen is mightier than the sword. This concept was challenged when Metro spotted our local Press cricket scribe in a quietly confident mood before his time at the crease. Matt Richens turned out for his East Shirley 3As at Elmwood Park on Saturday and he justified his selection with a stout 28 runs batting at first drop that saw his side to victory. However, the jury is still out whether he handles the sword of willow better than the pen!
