It’s a well known fact that England really don’t have a lot of big hitters….
Was just looking through cricinfo and saw this article on Gerrie Snyman, a Namibian dude who has played 35 first-class matches and scored 2285 runs at a strike rate of 72. Limited overs cricket: 1951 runs @ a SR of 110.
Perhaps they should try to find some long lost English uncle of Snyman so that they could get him in the squad for the T20WC, like the Netherlands did for Aussie Dirk Nannes, and get him to teach the other English players to play shots like this…
ECB, I require a commission for suggesting the idea, or I shall kick you in the arse, Mr. Clarke (some relation to Michael Clarke? Possibly another Aussie spy who knows Urdu!)
