Come on Eng­land, let’s get Bok to ba­sics ...

The Cricket Paper - - NEWS & VIEWS -

I AM se­ri­ously wor­ried about the make-up of the Eng­land squad for the se­ries against the West Indies.

With Keaton Jen­nings gone, where is the oblig­a­tory South African con­tin­gent?

Are the se­lec­tors tak­ing the rev­o­lu­tion­ary step of fill­ing the team with English­men (ig­nor­ing the Kiwi ori­gins of Ben Stokes)?

Per­haps they could re­cruit from Glam­or­gan, which in a re­cent match fielded six South Africans – not to men­tion two Aus­tralians.

I trust the sit­u­a­tion is re­stored by the time the team is named for the Ashes, and that there is again a proper South African rep­re­sen­ta­tion. MUR­RAY HEDGCOCK
