James Russell has very dodgy eyesight. He doesn't like bright lights. Or dark lights. Or any kind of lights. Frankly, I think this is just an excuse that he can use to get out of indoor cricket occasionally. The problem that James faces is that he only sits a couple of desks away, so if we're ever a player short, he's always the first guy that I hassle to take part. As a result, he's our second most capped player.

James currently holds the record of 'Lowest Individual Score' having achieved an unprecidented -19 in one particular innings. Fortunately, over the course of the other games that he's played, he's made up for this and has become something of a specialist opening bat for the TAB. He particularly relishes batting first, facing the first ball and giving his troublesome eyesight no time to get used to the overhead lighting conditions.
