Mark Vermeulen's mental

This morning Mark Vermeulen had been arrested regarding the arson attack on the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy. Now he's been charged. He burnt down their academy. Why?

For those of you who maybe don't know him, Mark Vermeulen is an international cricketer. He plays for Zimbabwe. He's an international cricketing pyromaniac. He's a pyromaniacal international cricketer. He's a mental.

Earlier in the year he was banned from Lancashire cricket for three years (two suspended) after a bizarre hissy fit during a league match, which culminated in his throwing first a cricket ball and then a boundary marker at a spectator who'd annoyed him. One of his teammates had to drag him away.

His Cricinfo profile highlights another, more low-key, but even more petty incident, where he took the stumps in with him when given out lbw and subsequently locked himself in the changing rooms. He was 17 at the time. Not three. 17.

Mental.

Crazy man burns down academy in the craziest of all cricketing nations.

Time for the those kind men in white coats with the big syringes to come and take him away.
