One or two interesting things on Cricinfo today. A typically excellent piece about the rapid demise of Matthew Hoggard as a Test cricketer by Andrew Miller, and the latest on the Champions Trophy, which, because of security worries, looks likely to turn to be even more underwhelming than usual.

Players worried about going to Pakistan? Try playing the IPL there and they'd be lining up in Lahore faster than you can say 'Darren Pattinson'.

You may be correct about Pakistan. Players were clamouring for 'less cricket' and complaining of 'burnout'. Oddly, that seems to have gone away...

Yes, it is odd, isn't it, Rob?
