With all at Reigate Priory looking forward to the battle between fellow llamas Jason Roy and Tim Murtagh it was Tim who stole the show at Lord's yesterday. In an opening spell of 9 overs Tim took 5-13 to help bowl England out before lunch for a paltry 85. Straight on to the Honours Board in his first test at Lord's.
Tim played regularly at Reigate from 2000-2003 with a few more games up until his last appearance in 2006, when his career at Middlesex took off. In his Priory career he took 63 wickets at 25.6 and scored 799 runs at an average of 20. Let's hope he can add a few to that record in the future.

Let's hope that both Jason and Tim do the Llamas proud over the rest of the test.
