Sir: After England's win in the fourth Test there has been a lot of comment on the so-called Barmy Army who "support" England. These people are nothing more than thuggish louts who turn up and chant mindless trash all day, but know nothing about the game. They then go to the pubs and get stoned out of their mind, making life unpleasant for law-abiding citizens. The rubbish that now follows the England cricket team abroad and to some extent at home should be dealt with by the authorities so we can go to cricket again in peace. If cricket does not want to go the same way as football it should get rid of these hooligans.
