It's just not cricket

The problems besetting India's cricket tour of Australia make painful reading. It's a shame that insults have become the norm in international matches and that the age of sportsmanship seems to be over. David Milliband said on Channel 4 news last night that he thought the Zimbabweans should not be allowed to tour England this year. That is sad too, in my view. Why should politics interfere with sport?

Perhaps the Zimbabweans could show us some exciting cricket!
Cricket exciting? I must admit that although I am not English I can get quite carried away watching cricket.

Hi ED - maybe you could introduce it in Belgium, could be a unifying force, you never know! I think they do play in Holland.

Yes WW, cricket is big here. There is a Belgian cricket federation and a Royal Brussels Cricket Club. Also in The Netherlands. The Hague, I believe.

I don't know about that. As long as we have anthem singing at sporting events, politics will intervene.
