Ray Roughler Jones, Portobello's favourite ne'er do well, is making his debut as a cricket commentator tomorrow on Test Match Sofa.
 
TMSofa is the iconoclastic alternative to Test Match Special, which has been putting a new spin on our summer game. "Cricket is my number one sport", as he reveals exclusively in his best selling autobiography, Drowning On Dry Land (priced very reasonably at £10 available from tangentbooks.co.uk). Listen to the man who has false memory of seeing Gary Sobers clout Malcom Nash for six 6's in an over on http://www.testmatchsofa.com/ 
 
This is what they say:
 
" We try not to swear, but sometimes we do (see our terms and conditions) so if you are offended by strong language there's always the BBC.
 
We will provide you with audio commentary for all international cricket games of the upcoming England summer season, as they happen, including every single England game and the historic Australia v Pakistan series.
 
All the action will be covered in full with live audio commentary, ball-by-tension-mounting-ball. Cricket commentary with a fresh, irreverent approach. "
