Nomads and imports

By Asides, Cricket

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.
