Oh good for you chrisg. I think I may have a letter wrong in 14d as quick solve shows no match. Second letter is D ?

Jazzgirl. Three times I clicked on your thread - and got an ad for Sky!
I`ve got `off-side too. Otherwise stuck on different ones. Waiting to see what turns up. M.

hi Mags. Sorry about the Sky ad. Not guilty :)
I've now changed 16a to off S*I* (it was a term I was not familiar with in bowling) so 14d and 24a now done.

I found it hard today: or was I just stupid?
For several of the clues I could not see the significance of some parts.
I got:
1ac The "he left" from Champion
16ac The delivery in cricket
3dn "roughly short"
13dn "the old"
But I don't see:
18ac Stagecoach
23ac "European..."
14dn "Animal..."
