Cameron at the crease: plenty of style – but lacking substance

 

David Cameron showed an appalling lack of foot movement during his brief innings playing cricket with teenagers in Mumbai today.

One wild slash did bring two runs and proved he has a good eye for the ball, and he should be applauded for his running between the wickets, as he successfully took on the fielder’s throw.

However, the PM’s dismissal was again due to a lack of foot movement. A higher left elbow and his head over the ball would have been more profitable than the over-ambitious drive he attempted. A straight bat, most adored by politicians, for once would have been welcome.
