Cricket kills 2 in a week; it's time to end this cruel sport!

First Phillip Hughes, and now this!

How many more will have to give their lives before this "game," this game that represents everywhere the smouldering embers of Empire, is extinguished once and for all?

If these two deaths had occurred in Canada during ice hockey matches, you can bet there'd be a Royal Commission and oodles of experts opining on the demise of the sport, etc., and plenty of do-gooders calling for, if not the end of hockey, at least the elimination of fighting in hockey, the banning of body-checks, and the introduction of sponge rubber pucks.
