Being out in cricket is ordinarily a bad thing, but Steven Davies being out is actually quite positive, because he is the first openly homosexual professional cricketer.
At times like this, you remember how backwards the world is – particularly the cricket world. It is 2011 and Steven Davies is the first professional cricketer to state that he is gay.
Maybe it’s the stigma of being ‘out’ more than anything. Are gay cricketers worried that an additional ‘out’ will affect their batting average?
