We’re sure you’ve heard Donald Trump’s “Soo Chin Ten-Dull-Kerr and Vir-art Ko Lee” effort by now.
It is bad pronunciation. Very bad. So, so bad. Huge mistake.
But even if Trump doesn’t – as he once claimed – “have the best words,” this needn’t be a barrier to carving out a new career as a cricket commentator. A lot of cricket coverage is excellent, but most of us have caught a broadcast where no-one can pronounce anything at some time or other. We’re pretty sure Trump could get by on quite a few channels on nothing more than bluff and bluster.
Trump’s almost eye-watering refusal to acknowledge his own incompetence in almost every sphere of life also provides us with a valuable lesson about cricket. We’ve written about this in our latest piece for Cricket 365.
