Who ISN’T Xavier Doherty?
Friends of ours will tell you that one of our less endearing characteristics is a propensity to ask meaningless rhetorical questions when responding to direct requests for information.
Friend: “Which turning is it?”
Us: “Which turning ISN’T it?”
Friend: “Where did you get that prosciutto from?”
Us: “Where DIDN’T we get that prosciutto from?”
We’ll try and treat our readers better than that. Xavier Doherty is a left-arm spinner whose name is more exciting than he is as a cricketer. He’s a one-day specialist and Australia have called him up to play Sri Lanka.
Why would they call up Xavier Doherty? Why wouldn’t they call up Xavier Doherty?
