Shortly after he was out on the final morning of England’s last warm-up match, in which they crashed to an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of an Indian Board President’s XI, Trescothick was seen leaving the ground in Baroda in tears.Why'd he break down if it was just a viral/bacterial flu? Perhaps Zainub, as a far better physiology expert among us cricket bloggers, should clarify if there is actually a variety of flu which forces those infected to break down in tears.
Unfortunately, the two tours, Pakistan and India, are tough tours to go on. It’s not easy to take your families to that part of the world and you spend a long time away from home. You need your comforts and your security to be able to perform at a good level.This is plain ridiculous. I hope some player from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan or Sri Lanka mentions England's ridiculously cold/wet weather, bombs in London last year and the UK Government's policies on Iraq as reasons for feeling uncomfortable there ... and still goes on tour. The whole point of life is to excel in unfamiliar conditions. One man did it better than just about everyone else in the game for nearly two decades, and his autobiography title is a fairly good indicator of how important it was for him to get away from those comforts.
