Really bad, the fact it's ancient history and has nothing to do with Stokes himself makes it even worse.

I've always held Stokes in the worst regard on a personal level, but leveraging his profile for publicity at the expense of his family is shocking.

It’s such a considered move by the editorial team.

To investigate the lead find the ‘scoop’ and then decide that it is worth following up and then publishing without consent is totally immoral. Particularly when it is a story that is clearly going to be very traumatic. How in any way can they see this blatant invasion of privacy as newsworthy?

After the phone hacking scandal it is clear evidence that ultimately nothing has changed.

And to use it as a timed distraction from political events they don't like.

Correct, I just remember a couple of interviews with a few different players of colour in South African teams have had run ins with him.

It's not for no reason that Rabada told him to 'fuck off' after getting him out in that test which didn't have much needle. When he was asked in the interview what had happened, Rabada said something like 'Stokes knows what he's done and this isn't the first time', referring to an incident in an England Lions vs South Africa A game. Bavuma said he walked up to him and said 'are you lost, what the fuck are you doing here'? I can't prove that he's a racist or has made racist comments but I suspect as much.

Obviously him pummelling that guys face in didn't do wonders for my opinion of him either.

I don't get why anyone still buys the rag, they continually do shit like this that just hurts people, and the only reason for doing it is to sell newspapers.

They are absolute scum

Kirsten might have been better but probably time to try another English coach first.

Apparently he interviewed really badly and came across as if he didn't really give a fuck whether he got the job or not

Would have been livid if Kirsten took that job with SA cricket in transition (minor disarray with no coach). Purely because he quit the SA job saying he wanted to spend more time with his family in Cape Town. Well England is no closer to Cape Town and England traditionally have longer tours than South Africa. If the reports are anything to go by, this did play a factor as it seemed he wanted to stay in South Africa and only join to prepare for series.

If he wants to return to international cricket, he should put his name in the hat for the Proteas job. Possibly wouldn't get it being the wrong colour but would be a huge. Although Peter Moores name was mentioned. I've never even heard of Enoch Nkwe before, so surely this can't be a permanent solution.

England's extraordinary win over New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup final will never be repeated after the boundary countback rule was abolished in ICC events.

After both sides hit 15 in the super over - a one-over shootout - England won because they had scored more boundaries in the match.

The super over in the semi-finals and finals will now be repeated until one team has scored more than the other.

Group games will have a super over too.

If the super over, which previously only applied in the knockout stages, is tied in the group stage then the match will be a draw.

The ICC said the super over is "an exciting and engaging conclusion to the game and will remain in place covering all games at both ODI and T20I World Cup".

Denly's ankle ligament injury is a stroke of fortune for England. I'm sure they wanted to drop him but probably felt after his performance (relative to his team mates) against Australia they weren't able to. This resolves that problem. He's 33 and not good enough, I doubt we'll ever see him involved in a test match ever again.
