Who’s the ECB squad mole?

The Cricket Paper - - NEWS & VIEWS -

THE an­nounce­ment of a tour­ing squad used to be pre­ceded by an­tic­i­pa­tion and ex­pec­ta­tion as sup­port­ers ea­gerly awaited the news on ra­dio or TV.

Nowa­days, the list of play­ers seem to be read­ily avail­able a few days be­fore and most news­pa­pers have cor­rectly re­ported the squad in their morn­ing edi­tions. Sim­i­lar oc­cur­rences hap­pen when a Test team is cho­sen.

The el­e­ment of sur­prise seems to have gone.What a shame that our na­tional se­lec­tion com­mit­tee leaks like a sieve.
