Have I Got More News For You

The reports on the ‘defection’ of Abbott and Rossouw in today’s newspapers reveal some bad-feeling from Cricket SA – not least from their coach. I wonder whether they will all meet up in the UK this summer?

Meanwhile this week’s Cricket Paper carries a broader view on Kolpacks** from Derek Pringle. Their numbers were in decline but that tendency has been reversed. There is also an interview with Reece Topley titled “I’ll get back to the top again” and I hope he will. He’s very positive about Craig White and hopes to be playing from week one (“but if not the first game, I’m sure I will be back for the second one”). But he makes one odd statement, saying “The last time I had an injury setback (in 2014), I then had a really good year breaking into the England team”.

The last time – 2014? It’s not quite Trump, but this might match the media’s current fondness for what they call ‘post-truth’!

**There is apparently a different word for the trade agreement guys – Cotonou – but it hasn’t caught on.
