Pilgrim’s Regress?

From BBC News:

Dan Christian has been banned for one match for smashing up a dressing room for the third time this season.

The former Hampshire player, 29, trashed changing rooms after three successive dismissals for the West End Redbacks in his native Australia.

“When blokes get out it really is tough,” South Australia director of cricket Jamie Cox said.

“But it doesn’t give anybody the right to actually smash up equipment and smash up dressing rooms.”

Cox added: “We all have bad days but you can’t go belting holes in walls and start upsetting the people around you.”

Christian was fined for his second transgression but after again vandalising the changing room at Perth’s WACA, where he was out for eight and four as the Redbacks were beaten by the Warriors, he has been banned for the match against Victoria Bushrangers.

The all-rounder helped Hampshire win the FP t20 title in 2010 and has played 17 one-day internationals and 11 Twenty20 matches for his country.

Get him back to the Ageas Bowl, we need that sort of passion around, given how easily our batsmen surrendered their wickets last season at times!

He wasn’t the most accommodating when it came to autographs! He, and Rory Kleinveldt (currently in the South African Test team) are the two signatures I failed to get for the James Buchanan collection. If anyone out there can help . .
