No middle wicket?

Bookmark and Share Watching Jacques bat against Kent yesterday at Canterbury I saw a selection of dilscoops and similar shots which all whizzed over Geraint Jones to the boundary. 'You can't set a field to that' they said. What about the old fashioned long stop - euphemistically called middle wicket in The Art of Coarse Cricket ( definitely a suggestion for Ed's growing cricket library). Is it too schoolboy?

Gosh!! The Art of Coarse Cricket (first published 1954, foreword by Denis Compton): it must be more than half a century since I read it, I wonder what happened to my copy.
