To plead can be merely to present an argument - & explanation was required. Why's the pitch in a mess? Well, there were gales last night, we couldn't have done more. It's hardly accepted practice for covers to fail. And the umpires were required to ask & give ECB an explanation

No veiled suggestion at all. You are over interpreting. Just described the facts as I knew them , cropped some pictures, shoved the quotes in and referenced recent ECB history.

I can contribute my vast experience here of an Under 13 match where we deliberately dropped "Stoner" (I still remember his name) five times and failed to run him out three. He got 23 not out from 20 overs but had a lovely defence

I’m about to go summer-only on the cricket beat and the plan is that I am going to do precisely this. Nous verrons... ‘Learn another European language – and give two fingers to Brexit Britain’

So that was what was meant by ‘taking back control’ from the EU.

Campbell Claret has done more to oppose Brexit on Twitter in the past week than most of the Labour cabinet has done in the last two years

No but I once got free drinks all night at Coral Gardens in Hikkaduwa from the man who missed a penalty in a defeat against the Maldives in a World Cup qualifier....

I am going to be accused of vanity by retweeting this undeserved burst of kindness but everything is measured these days and it might get me another 100 clicks on the piece....

That’s a very nice plug, if unmerited. i stepped away from the stressful stuff years ago and at the moment am just desperate to get to the end of the season!
