Australian cricketers have bigger balls than Australian footballers.

AUSTRALIA and England’s crickets side will not take a knee ahead of their six-match series.

Not without risk, given that that hairdresser who dissed Nancy Pelosi’s story about her salon visit has received death threats. But Australian captain Aaron Finch would rather promote education around the issue:

The education around it is more important than the protest.

I have spoken to Eoin [Morgan, UK captain] and we are not going to do specific gestures like it has happened in the past.

For us, we are really proud to play a game where it is celebrated all around the world and anyone can play it.

It doesn’t matter what race, what religion, what nationality you are from. Cricket is a game for everyone and I am really proud about that.

Well said, sir.

    • His comments about ‘this is a world game, anyone can play it’ ought to be passed along to the sportspeople in America who want to make a political statement on the field.

      • They would not listen, they’re not listening still…perhaps they never will…

        • I’m surprised you’re old enough to know that song.

          • Don’t be – I’ll be 65 in November.

      • They don’t listen to anyone – they have their own agenda and feel they deserve the world handed to them.
