Good news to relate from the West Indies impromptu  warm up game against the Aussies at Hampshire's Ageas Bowl on Wednesday. My mate who was there for some pre-World Cup volunteer training faithfully reports that the very honourable Steve Smith,who we recall as being so unfortunate as to be caught cheating on the only occasion that he (& just a couple of mates only) that he chanced it, walked on a caught behind pausing only to check that the umpire wasn't Stevie Wonder. 

My mate was unable to confirm that David Warner was at the car park exit wishing everyone one a safe journey  home & a pleasant evening but did notice that his drive home was hampered by rivers of blood & four strangely dressed horsemen one of whom rode a pale horse.
