Andy Bull (good British name) talking about English cricket’s nomads and imports in The Spin:
There is no need to mark a dividing line between those who arrived as children and those who made the decision later in life, just as there is no need to draw distinctions between players who have moved from Test-playing nations and those who haven’t. The point is that they decided to come at all. That is sufficient commitment in itself.
That sentiment is true for all walks of life, not just sport.
