Does anyone know why his so-called reporter from the "Daily Telegraph" hates
the Sri Lankan cricket team so much?.

Because they're not English. He hated Pakistan. He will no doubt hate
India when we go there later this year. If the rumours about East Sydney
being about 40 years behind the times were true, he'd probably quite
like NZ, but he'll probably find it all a great pity that it's been
modernised a bit. The man's a jackass. Killfile him.

Cheers,

Mike

The man seems to have a talent for offending people.  I was in the UK
briefly last November and saw one copy of the Daily Telegraph during my
stay - it was just before the first Test started.  Henderson's match report
included a comment about how Lord McLaurin wouldn't be able to make it to
Pakistan for the first Test (this at a time when England were attempting to
rebuild relations with Pakistan and McLaurin's absence might be considered a
faux pas).  The reason given was that Lord McL had to attend a graduation or
some other function at a university at which he held some honorary post or
other.  Not very interesting, except that Henderson managed to couch his
thoughts in such a way as to upset the university - I gather a senior member
of staff complained to the paper.

Shame really, because although it's a stuffy right-leaning rag, the
Telegraph did have a decent reputation for its cricket writing.

I suppose we'll get to find out next (NZ) summer.  It'll probably offend him
less than Asia seems to.  Having said that, if (when?) he voices a dislike
for the hideous music played at one-day internationals here, I'll be on his
side.

He's a complete***head?

I'm forwarding his details for honorary membership of the Gilish
Inquisition, I'm sure his rantings will fit right in.

He does like South Africans though...and he's not too much of a problem
with Ozzies. So it's only brown people he assumes are obviously cheats and
up to no good...

Racism in the Torygraph? Whatever next?

Well, as you said, who'd'a thunk it, and in the Townendgraph too?

Anyway, fans of the great man will be pleased to find out that he had a
splendid time in SL. According to the Graun, Jack Bannister was
interviewing Hendo on the radio during the last ODI, and asked him what
had been the most memorable part of the tour. Henderson replied that it
had been a beach party the day before, at which he got "thoroughly
pissed".

Cheersh, down the hatch,

:)  Am starting a campaign to banish the appaling term "Ozzie" from the
vernacular.  It's "Aussie": Ozzies are either pink ostrich puppets or
citizens of a place over-the-rainbow from Kansas.

Unless of course you want to call us names.  In which case, go right
ahead...
