David Hopps on Yorkshire:
One of the oddities of English cricketing life is the underlying hostility felt towards the national team from a section of the Yorkshire cricket-loving public. The assumption is that supporting England is somehow not entirely wholesome, and is likely to be followed by other errors of life such as marrying someone from Kent and buying a four-bedroom detached in Tunbridge Wells.
Any guesses why:
- Yorkshire is my favorite county cricket team?
- Tunbridge Wells cricket ground has a mythical quality?
