Cloaked in neo-colonial garb, the gentlemen and players of Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh’s celebration of all things crickety, The Duckworth Lewis Method, rattled through their allotted overs at a fair lick, and if the intensity fell away a little in those difficult middle overs, there was enough in the tank to get the crowd to their feet at the death. Relentlessly witty, well-informed and knowledgeable, this is no novelty act, but a band slick enough to improvise a cover of ‘Downtown’ then nonchalantly let it collapse. They’re really just out to have fun. Like Brearley told Botham in 1981.
