Think he means Melton
Oh OK!
Ya just heard he's now got an elbow problem.
Had a heel injury that really hampered his career and now has had an elbow problem that required an op and it apparently hasn't worked.
I feel so bad for Dusty. This guy wants a career more than life itself.
Hopefully it mends and he comes out firing.
He's not a complete mug with the bat, either.
Plus I think he has to stay in UK to complete his time for the passport and can't afford to be out of the country. I think in your last year of qualification you can't even be out for 30 days.
This obsession with their passport is something to behold, people put themselves through hell to get it and often never have a requirement for it ever again.
A backstop if there's a Third World Armageddon, which is entirely possible the way things are run.
Or a backstop for your old age so you can go there to die on NHS as opposed to being put in a shit hole home by kids that have essentially abandoned you.

It apparently costs 200k to bring up a child. You get the fuckers to sign an Acknowledgement of Debt before they leave home.

He must be very close to getting his passport now isn't he? He's been over there for years.

December.
But then have to hang around to get it issued, and you have to sell a kidney for that. Then sit a test to prove you know England better than the English themselves, then an English test to prove you can speak the mother tongue (clearly 11 million people dodged that one!), then your pledge to the Queen.

If they got the 72 million population to do this they could get rid of the 30 million sponging yobos that are fucking that country up.

Carlson and Byrom from Glamorgan
Welch from Leicestershire
Probably Curran from Northants
Probably Compton from Kent
That's 5 probables

Then-
Gubbins?
Ballance?
That's 7.

I have no idea currently about the other 3, but there are some quality batters there.
Milton, will fraine?
And why no overseas bowlers?
Ya maybe Fraine.
Who's Milton?
Melton my mistake :cry:

Bad news from Yorkshire, todays Bradford Rhubarb Growers Gazette (print edition only) says that Ballance has a great great great great grandfather that was born while on a camping holiday in the Khyber Pass, so Gary could now qualify for Afghanistan

Watch this space or maybe this one for updates
