At least James Anderson had a new slavering bairn as a reason for racking up thousands of air miles. That’s a decent reason. ‘Maybe having to do some work but probably not having to do any work at all’ is not a good reason.
Liam Plunkett will have to wrestle with his conscience about eco-issues as well now.
