Such is the desire to go Pom-bashing, the Aussies have already been reduced to suggesting that the Poms are, well, not the Poms. In an act of desperation betraying fear, The Australian newspaper greeted England's arrival in Perth with the headline: "England's team of old empire flies in to defend the urn." The story listed the five members of the squad born outside England: four in South Africa, one in Ireland. This is an argument already well-rehearsed at home, where there has been much soul-searching about the policy. But rules, as they say, are rules and of the South African quartet two arrived in England as boys, all have English parentage and all have nailed their colours to England's mast. What were the selectors to do? As for Eoin Morgan, he would seem to be a thorough-going Irishman but if he wanted to play Test cricket his options were limited. The question of birthplace has been raised initially by the accomplished veteran Pom-baiter Malcolm Conn, ace cricket-writer for The Australian who considers it part of his duties. It's always splendid to reflect that this most Australian of Australians is actually a New Zealander.
