JACK HAYWARD is not, nor has he ever been, 'the husband of Rachael Heyhoe Flint', who was, in 1973, the wife of Wolverhampton businessman Derrick Flint, as she still is ('Down-Under dominance', 18 July).

Before her ongoing marriage to the aforesaid Mr Flint, she was, however, plain old Rachael Heyhoe.

Mr Hayward did, indeed, withdraw his patronage of England women's cricket after Rachael was dropped as England captain, but this was simply as a gesture of solidarity to a friendship going back over more than 10 years - and not, as you imply, the act of a jealous husband]
