The BBC are reporting that Sussex are furious with Surrey because the latter approached one of their players.
Sussex chairman, Jim May, was red-faced with fury, ranting:
“The approach is unwelcome and the timing very unfortunate.”
Peppering the interviewer with flecks of spit and bile, May’s rage later reached its zenith with the following outburst:
“This is a complex situation as we have absolutely no wish to lose a player of Rory’s potential and we will consider our response carefully before any further communication.”
Don’t cross Sussex or you’ll feel their wrath.
