DURING the current lockdown period, we’ve asked Somerset’s cricketers a series of quickfire questions - some about cricket, some more general to get to know the players a little better.

First up is T20 captain Lewis Gregory...

Q. If you could play cricket at any venue in the world (aside from Taunton of course!), where would it be?

A. A full house at the MCG... just think how amazing a stadium it is to play at, in front of that many people - it would be such a thrill and why you get into the sport!

Q. If you could change one rule in cricket, what would it be?

A. Get rid of the ‘Mankad’ rule or change it to something else like a run penalty... it’s just not in the spirit of the game.

Q. What’s the funniest or most bizarre thing you’ve seen on a cricket pitch?

A. I wasn’t there but there’s a funny video of Tres falling over twice in the second team, running between the wickets! If not that, then watching Tregs celebrate a wicket off a free hit in this year’s t10!

Q. What advice would you offer to a youngster starting out in cricket now?

A. Have fun and show people what you’re about... keep smiling!

Q. Who is your sporting hero?

A. Jonny Wilkinson. I loved rugby as a kid, and the hard work and relentlessness he went through made him the best!

Q. Which country (or city) have you never visited, but would love to go to?

A. The Amalfi Coast. It looks such a beautiful place with amazing views.

Q. What are you watching on television at the moment?

A. The Last Dance, about Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls. For anyone into sport, it’s a must-watch.

Q. It’s karaoke night. What do you sing?

A. Wonderwall by Oasis.

Q. If you could choose one cricketer and one celebrity to be in self-isolation with, who would they be?

A. Tiger Woods - he’s an all-time great in golf (and may have some stories...) - and Jack Leach, because I am isolating with him!
