Allan Donald's big fish

It hasn't escaped the notice of the Raggy Bear that former Warwickshire bowler and coach Allan Donald is still banging on about that fish.

Some people may point out that Cricinfo always use the same library picture of him on any story. However the truth is that Donald once caught a carp in the Dudley canal basin and hasn't stopped going on about it since.

In a recent interview with Cricinfo he was explaining how fast bowlers these days don't have enough down time for a proper fishing trip and that hardly anyone out there was in with a chance of landing anything near as big as his record, "which was literally THIS big".
