Quick single: bit of a hero

Asked at the end of the second day’s play at Lord’s about the prospect of Brendon McCullum batting against the new ball on the next day, Moeen Ali said, “Yeah, he’s a bit of a hero of mine..”

Hasn’t the lad attended the ECB media management training?

What’s all this doffing the cap, mid-match, to the opposition captain’s style of cricket?

And the use of simple, clearly spoken words? It’s as if England’s whole vocabulary of performance development had been blown away.

It could be a watershed moment.

I am left to think that Moeen Ali is a bit of a hero of mine.

He didn’t even qualify the statement with an “obviously“.
