ashesIan Bell becomes the latest English Test player to score the dreaded Primary (Melbourne, 28th December)!  He joins Alistair Cook (Perth), Stuart Broad (Adelaide), Jimmy Anderson (Adelaide) and Matt Prior(Brisbane), who suffered this fate this season.

In England, Trent Bridge (10th July 2013), England’s Steven Finn scored a dreaded primary and a few days later, Jonathon Trott too joined him in the club. Prior joined them in the 4th Test played at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.

The members of the Primary Club of Australia donate a $5 “fine” to the charity every time an Australian cricketer gets a first ball duck – a Golden .. a Primary (call it what you will) .. but the Ashes is a special event in the heart of all cricketers and the members of the Primary Club of Australia have said they will be willing to donate $10 every time they see an English Golden Duck!

On behalf of the Primary Club committee congratulations on 40 years on ABC Radio, which you celebrate this week.

Well done and congratulations.Its seems only yesterday that we heard Alan McGilvray, whom you started with in the box that day in 1973 at the start of the Lillee / Thompson era, and the World XI Tour of Australia.

We will enjoy your commentary again in Adelaide this week.
