Body Talk

Geoff Miller has, rightly, called for the ECB to get their finger out in appointing a new coach - preferably prior to the announcing of the test squad for the upcoming West Indies Second XI tour.

Sadly the ECB don't seem to be in any hurry to do this - no doubt they've been assured by the headhunters appointed that it'll be worth the wait and these things are best not hurried. They may be right - but they've been looking for a successor since Moores quit back in January, so we're hardly talking about a snap decision.

Presumably the headhunters are being paid by the hour, so have a vested interest in dragging things out as long as possible.

Here in the Peoples Republic of TRSM, we're often accused of negativity, so here's some genuine constructive advice for everyone in any position of power or influence at the ECB: -

1. Arse -

2. Elbow -

Try to tell the difference between the two.

No doubt it'll take a lot of practice - don't be shy about asking one of the cleaning staff or the doorman to help you. It'll be worthwhile in the long run, and will help you move forward from the current situation, which seems to be this -
