FLETCHER BACKS THE BAD BOY

By Mark Baldwin, Press Association Cricket Reporter in Bangalore

     Middlesex bad boy Mark Ramprakash will be considered for the
summer series  against  Australia  despite  being effectively sus-
pended for  the winter  tour to  India and  Sri  Lanka.   England
manager Keith Fletcher today confirmed that the  23-year-old bats-
man had been omitted  from both  the senior  trip and the  A team
tour to Australia for disciplinary reasons.  


summer, was left out following two incidents with  Middlesex.  He

Marcus Wight  in April and  disciplined again in mid-August after
clashing with a  spectator at a  Sunday League fixture.  Fletcher
said he had spoken several times  to Ramprakash this winter in an
effort to help point the  highly talented in the  right direction.
"Ramprakash  is lad  who could  be a superb  player but there are
standards you have  to abide by," said  Fletcher. "If you  are an
England player  you have to  behave in a certain way."

     Ramprakash looked to have established himself in the England
Test side with a  series of  fighting  knocks  against  the  West
Indians in 1991.  But he lost  his Test place in New Zealand last
winter and was also left out of the World Cup squad. He played in
last summer's first Test  against Pakistan - getting a first ball
duck - and was dropped again before  being recalled for the final
two Tests.  Fletcher also  indicated that England's  batting line-
up might be  shaken up  following the  *** by  India.  He
mentioned the  experienced  David Gower and  Allan Lamb, plus the
promise of  youngsters Graham Thorpe  and Mark Lathwell - as well
as Ramprakash.  Fletcher  said: "It might not be exactly the same
players who line up against Australia.  "We have got  to get back
home and then think  about what is  the best  side to  regain the
Ashes.  "As we said at  the time of this tour's selection - David
Gower's Test career is  not necessarily finished.  And Allan Lamb
is another  pretty useful batsman."  Fletcher  also spoke of  the
role  Graeme Hick  can play  following his  successful  tour.  He
added: "Graeme has  the ability to become a  top class  performer
and I rate  him highly.  "We brought him on this tour so he could
develop, and I  believe he could  be the player to hold England's
batting together for the next 10 years."

        Ahh.. now I get it - Mr. McDuck doesn't read what's *inside* an article.
The subject line's as far as he gets before the instinctive depression of
the follow-up key :-) Right, Unca Scrooge? :->

Wrong!  I followed up 'cos I couldn't believe that a flimsy reason such as  
that would prevent him from being selected.

Come on! These are the English selectors we are talking about here.  One
might equally ask the question:  "Why wasn't Gower sent to India?"...

They are going to do the same thing they did against Pakistan:  get into
really serious trouble and then have no other option but recall David and
Mark and the rest of the guys on the outer for "disciplinary" reasons...
