Mild-mannered Lancastrian Jimmy Anderson must have been brought up very tough on the mean streets of Burnley… either that or he is daft!

Why else would he choose to pick on Runako Morton, a man bigger than him that was reportedly arrested and charged with stabbing his cousin in the chest following a family dispute in 2004? Plus he was wearing a helmet and carrying a bat! Anderson wouldn’t have had a chance!

Cricinfo reports that Anderson has been fined 50% of his match fee for shoulder-barging Runako Morton during the second one-day international at Edgbaston.

Quite rightly the match referee has stepped in as the players are “are role models watched by people all over the world.”

More importantly however, and this is a very serious offence, Stuart Broad was found guilty of wearing a “visible white garment” under his playing shirt on Wednesday, something not permitted under clothing regulations. Hanging is the only appropriate sentence!

Argy bargy!

Speaking of James Anderson, this is his wife…
