Here's an insightful piece from Everard Gordon in the Guardian. He's equating the mediocrity on the cricket pitch to mediocrity in other spheres of life.

"....men who have never scored a century in any level of cricket are selected for the Windies because they play good looking shots. Bowlers who run in fast and aggressively and bowl fast but are unable to bowl to plan, are good to look at. They are chosen to play for the West Indies.

"The results are not surprising but painful, nevertheless. We seem to be swayed by appearance and pay little attention to substance, until that becomes absolutely necessary."

Everard, you have just succinctly summarised what we have been saying all along about some members of the media in Trinidad and Tobago.
But we hope someone will soon come along and clean up that mirror.
