Cricket blog set to storm the internet

The 28 year old electrical shop worker from Dudley promises to produce a ‘’ no-holds barred ‘’ blog in which all the important cricketing issues of the day are tackled with his own unique spin.

Prentice is the author of two other blogs : ‘’ X Factor Confidential ‘’ and ‘’ UK Female Newsreaders Upskirts and Down Blouses ‘’
