Welcome to the latest in our series of puzzles, which have now been running every week for over two years.
It’s been nearly a year since Bufo’s last NTSPP puzzle – but it was worth the wait!
The puzzle is available by clicking here:
Feel free to leave comments about this puzzle on this post. A review will be published in due course.
Congratulations are also due to Alchemi – he has secured a regular fortnightly slot on the excellent Cricinfo webset where he will be setting cricket related puzzles under the alias Hemical (another anagram of his first name).

A very enjoyable, perfect for lunchtime solving, crossword from Bufo. Thank you and ‘more please’!
Ditto to the above. I will post a review later.
Having shared a beer or 15 with The Big Easy (one beer for me, about 15 for him) on the Saturday evening of a tournament when he was in contention, I admire the all-in-oneness of 29 down.
Thanks Bufo, really enjoyed it.
(and with very little electric help!).
Thanks, Bufo, for a very enjoyable crossword.
Very enjoyable however I will have to wait for Prolixic’s review to understand why 11a, 7d,13a are what they are.
Thank you Bufo
11a – add on to your answer to get the capital of the U.S. state of New Jersey
7d – O(f) + some soldiers (men) inside some animals
13a – the French for “of” + head of S(tate) + a word meaning having agreed with a member of an opposing party to abstain on a motion in parliament
Nice puzzle, Bufo. I loved 30A especially.
As to my Hemical puzzles on Cricinfo – they are actually going to be fortnightly. Thanks to all here for their encouragement and help: without it, I wouldn’t have had the nerve to pitch the idea at Cricinfo.
Alchemi, thanks for the info regarding your puzzles on Cricinfo.
I have managed to find the puzzle directly via a Google search (cricinfo + Hemical + crossword), but I cannot find it via the Cricinfo home page.
Is it possible to print the puzzle? I have never become accustomed to doing them on-line.
I’m sure that all the Cricket loving ladies on this blog will be delighted to have a go!
CI aren’t keen on a direct-to-print option: they want to retain eyeballs. And under the terms of our agreement, I can’t republish somewhere else with a print option for another few days yet.
I should have checked with your email – now corrected.
The puzzles can be accessed from “Page 2” of Cricinfo – just follow the link I posted above.
Thanks to Bufo for a very enjoyable puzzle with very smooth surfaces. My favourites were: 6d, 11d and 29d.
