THIS was supposed to be solely about tennis, but I have been disgusted by India’s support for Zimbabwe’s continued membership of the ICC. This support is based solely on India’s desire to keep its hands round the throat of the world body. Without Zimbabwe’s vote in its back pocket, India does not quite have the stranglehold to do what it likes with the game that it has hijacked. India is leading the ICC down a shameful path, along which the weeds of greed flourish and the noble flowers of principle have become entangled amid the rush for gold. In the immediate term, however, a fascinating series awaits us in England. Let us enjoy that to its full without worrying about the uncertain future of cricket as we know it.
