I'm trying to find out what famous cricketers do AFTER they're famous. No=
ones who end up as commentators, trainers or pundits. The other ones. Lik=
the guy who ended up running a fish shop on the south coast (like a forme=r
England cricket star, apparently). Do you know any household names who en=ded
up doing something surprising?
If you go back to the amateur days many amateurs had very interesting
non-cricketing careers, Neville Knox made his living as a concert
singer, Jacker Jackson was a Tory MP and minister then Governor of
Bengal, CB Fry ran his naval training school and WG had his own
medical practice which he attended to in the offseason. Arthur
Mailey, who counted as an amateur, made a successful career as a
cartoonist and humorous writer and ran a tripe shop. This prompted him
to put a sign up outside the shop: "Once I bowled tripe, then I wrote
tripe and now I sell tripe". One of the most loveable of cricketers.
Mailey, that's the first one I thought of when I saw the header.
The next one was advertise Morrison's.
Then play in war of the worlds on radio.
Whatever Ed Smith is supposed to do.
