Yasin Patel Member profile

Assistant Team Coach : Yasin Patel

Single. Polite. Good looking. Is known as "Chesh" and "Smiley" to friends.
Has an IQ of 12, but pretends that it is a lot more!
Is known for being the slowest batsman in the history of cricket in Essex. Rather vain too. Carries a comb in one pocket and hair gel in the other. Super glue in his back pocket as he cannot catch. Finally, is known as 'John Smith' to close friends due to his 'cardboard cut-out' like movements!
It is now official, Yasin won the H&C pin up award again. It is now 17 years running.  Club have indefinitely banned him from the competition.
