Boycott knighted. But big fuss made of the fact that he was found guilty in a French court of domestic abuse.Claims he is innocent.Was 25 years ago.
Wouldn't be surprised if he told them to shuve it if the politicians keep up the criticism.Throw a few insults toward parliament. I mean how many MP's get knighthoods...and for what.
Theresa May likes her cricket and shes sorted out 2 big Tory boy cricketers in Strauss and Boycs with Knighthoods.
I like them both, Boycott cracks me up at times, real pig headed character as a player and now as a commentator. Strauss was a solid player, leader, cricketer, bloke and has dealt with the death of his wife to Cancer brilliantly.
Being Tory supporters though will have counted for more than all that though.
On to tomorrow now and the weather is set fair for 5 full days of cricket in the sun. Win this England can look back at a really good Summer of cricket.
It's one thing for Australia to retain the Ashes, but it would be another for them to come here and win them. We mustn't let it happen even though it will be difficult seeing as though (although we have won a test) we haven't really looked like winning any of the previous 4 so far.
