The superstar from Pilani CC was at the Eagles for only a short period but made a colossal impact. He announced himself to fans in his fourth game for the club with an unbeaten 271 against Atkinson, and continued on to an almost Bradmanesque season - 1,427 runs at an average a tick over 75 - almost single-handedly lifting the Eagles into tier 1. Although his place in the side wasn't guaranteed the following season as younger players were granted opportunities, Blake followed up with an average north of 60 in ten further matches. The combined weight of those two seasons saw him set a new high mark of 66.9 for club batting averages that will probably never be beaten.

Blake's sharp catching and his ability to adapt to the shorter format meant he could do almost no wrong, except for the fact that he was in the twilight of his career and his time at the Eagles was all too brief. He timed his departure well, at the peak of his powers: his ensuing performances for The Dutch Courage have been rather less superhuman.

Season 41 - 42

Although achieving only a disappointing batting average in his time at The Dutch Courage, Blake performed an invaluable opening role, reliably blunting the new ball attack and performing admirably in the field. Still worth a few thousand even at age 34 primarily due to his massive bucket-hands (a congenital affliction that has made normal life difficult but proved useful in cricket), Blake will be sharing the twilight of his career with a tabloid series of ladies of questionable virtue and an aggressive alcohol addiction that will eventually lead to a premature demise in his early 40s.
