Graham Ford makes the right choice

Miriam emailed us after Kent's director of cricket, Graham Ford, turned down the chance to become India's new coach:

"Graham Ford has chosen to remain at Kent with Rob Key rather than going to work with the likes of Dravid, Tendulkar, Dhoni, etc. Was there ever better proof of Rob Key's Power?"

In one regard, she's clearly right: Graham Ford has weighed up the players of India against Rob Key and the Indian squad has been found wanting. However, there is better proof of Rob Key's Power (upper-case P).

He emits a faint hum when he walks out to the crease. This is the sound of pent-up brilliance trying to escape. He can also hover inches from the floor, enabling him to get to the pitch of the ball more easily when facing spinners on a wearing pitch. There's also the ethereal glow that emanates from his being once he's seen the shine off the new ball.

Graham Ford would know these signs better than anyone.

Isn't hovering over the floor a bit of a problem when facing spinnings? What with the stumpings and all?

He'd have to miss the ball for that.
