Profile

Hmmm. Quite simply, the man is a genius. Another of Bodley's founding members, Dave befuddles the opposition by looking like Ricky Ponting, talking like Pa Larkin and batting like Brian Lara - in fact the backlift is so straight, and so high, that circling buzzards have been known to land atop it and build a nest. An occasional bowler beloved for delivering 'death from above', Dave's deliveries have caused many a batsman to retire hurt due to a craned neck. Famously, and brilliantly once played an innings in which he went for a short walk mid-over whilst still on strike, to the immense enjoyment of all watching. On top of all of this Dave is also responsible for Bodley's best touring story, but you'll have to see Stuart down the pub to hear it.
