    Dravid joins game's retired elite

    The Marylebone Cricket Club today announced the MCC World Cricket Committee. The committee is chaired by the current MCC Chairman and former England captain Tony Lewis, the last person to captain England on test debut. The release says
    The remit of the MCC World Cricket committee, which will be chaired by Tony Lewis, the MCC Chairman of Cricket, will be to discuss any aspect of the game, especially those which have an impact on the Laws or the Spirit of Cricket, included as the preamble to the Laws. It will be empowered to conduct research, particularly into technological advances and bio-mechanical elements of the game and its players.
    The constitution of the committee reveals that barring Rahul Dravid, the rest are all retired from international cricket, have had their benefit seasons and in a few cases, written their autobiographies as well. Given that the MCC is still the upholder of the laws of the game, this group has a wonderful opportunity to make some fundamental and far-reaching changes. But my gut feeling is that fourteen members in a committee is far too many to come to any meaningful decision in a timely and fair manner and there is a real danger of this committee being nothing more than an old boys' club.

    2 sledge(s):

    There are only two specialist bowlers on the list, and neither of them were spinners. That's distinctly unimpressive, as the article mentions that their first task will be to look at chucking.

    Nice catch, Geoff ... and one of those had an action which was considered suspect by quite a few! Besides the first meeting only will discuss "bio-mechanical elements of the game", not chucking - they can hide behind that wording for sure! :)
