While Surrey and Hampshire batted it out to the death at the Oval last week, three unlikely cricket fans sipped their beers in the crowd.

Ex-Independent chairman and chief executive Michael Bright was spotted by an Insurance Times reader, who told Backchat that he was sandwiched (no mean feat for those who have met the man) between two ex-Indie directors.

"They looked happy and relaxed," said our source.

Sadly, the eagle-eyed reader didn't name Bright's companions, but Backchat imagines there can be only two ex-directors who would be seen alive or dead with Edenbridge's most infamous son. Can you guess? Answers by email please: news@instimes.co.uk
