Welcome to my new website

Many of us over 60 are counted out when part-time jobs come up despite our collective wisdom and abilities.

To counter some of this prejudice I have dispensed with sending my CV and have instead created The Complete Picture, an animated ninety second overview of my life to date @ https://vimeo.com/223960456.

Pakistan Cricket Team should Go Home & Be Suspended from the ICC for 2 years

You are here: Home / Blog / Sport / Pakistan Cricket Team should Go Home & Be Suspended from the ICC for 2 years

Aug
Has our own cricket administration, the ECB, lost all sight of sports' morality?

They refused to suspend Zimbabwe when their own players wore armbands complaining about Mugabe's regime.

Now. there is an inquiry into betting allegations (released in the News of the World yesterday) and all we hear is that the One Day internationals with Pakistan should be allowed to go on later this week if the three Pakistani cricketers named in the newspaper are suspended and sent home (not a good idea as they'd be out of the reach of the Fraud Squad). The ECB would lose £12 million if the games were cancelled.

Back home Pakistan is bereft of leadership, has millions homeless, has all sorts of infrastructure issues following the flooding and a corruption level in its Government which embarrasses even its own people especially those that have settled here and we have our own cricket board wanting the games to go ahead.

Send the Pakistan team home; suspend them from the ICC for two years.
