Michael Vaughan and others yesterday visited an area devastated by Pakistan’s earthquake. And the other day, Rick asked: What is cricket doing for the earthquake victims?
I suppose I’d like to ask: what can anyone really do for the victims? Does the sight of wealthy western people who play a sport for a living, travelling to an earthquake-devastated region make your blood boil? It’s something I’ve never quite grasped, nor worked out whether I feel angry or bitter about. Yes, it’s a nice gesture for Vaughan to go and say hello – but what can he, or any of his team-mates, actually do?
