Letter: Many a slip

REVIEWING THE section of English schools cricket in the 1999 Wisden, Stephen Brenkley assumes when he states "the establishments are the same as they have always been" that none of them are comprehensives. South Craven School, an 11 to 18 mixed comprehensive, first had cricket averages included in the 1994 edition of Wisden and can be found again this year.

State school cricket is very much alive in both the inner city and the shires and we value the support and encouragement given by the MCC, Wisden and others.
