Perhaps Shaharyar Khan will visit Cuba soon. Castro has decided Cuba is indeed part of the West Indies and is keen to adopt the local culture.

Strange how cricket is becoming so political just before the World Cup!

OK ... add the ICC move to Dubai last year to your list.

Perhaps I should have said isn't it strange how cricket moves up the political agenda just before the World Cup!!
