The veteran presenter of quiz show Going for Gold had a drink with the lads after the match – and was desperate to become the latest celeb to don the famous orange cap.
Cricket fan Kelly – whose catchphrase was “What am I?” – also broke the news to the players that Ravi Bopara has been called up by England for the third Test versus India at Edgbaston this week.
The plain-speaking Irishman exclusively revealed to The Road that Bopara’s call up was a mistake, suggesting Leicestershire’s in-form James Taylor was a safer bet.
When quizzed, Kelly, 65, said: “The other month I was playing a charity match with Shane Warne and Graham Hick.
“Warne said that Hick was the best batsmen that he faced, but didn’t have the head for international cricket. The same is with Bopara.”
Kelly shared a drink with the team after they reined in the Wandering Herd in a rain soaked Hampstead.
