Chris ‘shaved head, no hat’ Lewis has signed for Surrey for this season’s Twenty20 matches. He’s 40.
Younger readers might like to think of Lewis as being a sort of role model for the current West Indian team. He was born in Guyana, but it’s not that.
With the ball, he was as promising and ineffectual as Tino Best. With the bat he was as promising and ineffectual as – well – let’s say Dwayne Smith. We’re so spoilt for choice though.
The fact that Lewis is 40 and was rubbish for England has led us to officially make ourself available for selection again. We could be rubbish for England for years to come, it seems. We’ve got ample time to do justice to our talent after all.
