Questions and Answers


Q: Just a quick note I hope you don't find too pedantic. Cricket embodies a sporting spirit, an English ideal (mirrored by many other cricket playing nations, of course) one would hope is now being appreciated around the world. However, your website uses a lot of American rather than English spellings. Perhaps you're using a spell checker when putting up articles (like in the Steve Harmison Q+A from Lords) and have it set to American-English corrections? Please change it to use English spellings. Every little helps, keeping the language precious. It just isn't cricket otherwise. Thanks for listening either way. Great site.

A: We're all English and like to think we can spell; certainly not trying to use American spellings!
