Congratulations to Raymond Illingworth on making his first appointment as the
new supremo of English cricket.I do not refer to Mike Atherton's
reappointmnet but the appointment of SIR GEOFF BOYCOTT as England's new
batting guru.An obvious step in the right direction and not before time
either.Sir Geoff is being paid 400 per day and still reckons he's
underated.He'll show our batsmen how to tame Curtly and Courtney.
"You've got to get FORWARD" is a phrase which will frequently be heard on the
English training grounds.
Nice one Illy.
P.S. C'mon Yorkshire.Yorkshire are currently THRASHING Lancashire in the war
of the roses match.Congratulations to David Byas 193.I have to admit that
Australia do have one good batsman in Michael Bevan.Good hundred scored on
Saturday and he'll soon be adopted as a tyke if he keeps that form up.
