Cricket In Crisis

Following the horror of the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team recriminations have begun.

Former England opening batsman and now match referee Chris Narrow complained bitterly "As soon as the terrorists opened fire the police ran away. What good is security if they are going to run away just because somebody is shooting at them?"

Pakistan's cricket board hit back. Spokesperson If But said "Mr Narrow is not right in what he is saying. Our armed forces were not guilty of running away. I think his views are coloured by a bad lbw decision from 1987."

The arguments are unhelpful for the whole region. The plenty plenty tournament starts soon and stars such as Freddie Flintstone, KP Nuts, Ricky Pointless and Wayne Shorne will arrive seeking assurances that the banks will be secure.

Geoff Boycott said "Mother's pinny. Yorkshire. Forward defensive." He was then led away to a secure unit.
