Batsman’s no joker

Last Thursday (18 August) saw Scotland’s most capped cricketer ever take on the might (if that’s the right word in these days of English cricket’s renaissance) of the Aussies.

Greig Williamson, who by his own admission bowls a bit and bats a bit, was winning his 154th cap for his country at Raeburn Place, Edinburgh. Thanks then to Dundas & Wilson, where Williamson is an associate, for letting him out to play.

Williamson began his international playing career way back in 1989, before he was even a glimmer in the legal eye of Dundas. When he joined the firm, he was able to continue his playing career.

Sadly, at press time, rain had delayed Williamson’s and his team’s attack on the Aussies, but Tulkinghorn for one sincerely hopes they continue to rattle the baggy greens (even if it proves to be in the pub) in the same way as Vaughan’s boys have so magnificently done, ahead of the fourth, crucial Test at Trent Bridge this Thursday.
