Welcome to Collingwood

Posted by Martin on February 12, 2007

There he is, bless 'imIf you’re not yet a cricket fan (and I do hope that readers of this blog are at least drifting in that direction), then allow me to introduce you to the David Beckham of cricket. Arise Sir Paul Collingwood – the batsman/bowler/fielder/lovable Geordie/acrobat who has resurrected the flatlining English cricket team.

Colly (as I – and I hope you will now – call him) single-handedly masterminded three straight victories in the Australian One Day series – two of them in the finals against the Australians themselves. And somehow, after being utterly slaughtered by that same team in the recent five-day test series, England today return from ‘down under’ clutching some silverware.

My faith is restored, and all is well again. The World Cup starts next month, and England have hit form at just the right time. There has never been a better time to get into cricket, to get behind England, or to be called Paul. Hurrah.
