Wes Hall becomes Sir Wes Hall
Thoroughly deserved - was a great player, and has served the game marvelously over the years.

And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

I don't want Imran to be knighted. I don't want him to be recognised by a title that doesn't mean anything.

We used to have knighthoods here but they were rightly dispensed with during the magnificent reformist era of the Hawke-Keating government in the 1980s. Now we have the Order of Australia.*
But to those whose countries still have them, why is a knighthood meaningless? Doesn't it acknowledge your contribution?

"In 2009, Prime Minister John Key restored the honours to their pre-April 2000 state. Principal Companions and Distinguished Companions (85 people in total) were given the option to convert their awards into Knighthoods or Damehoods. The restoration was welcomed by the Monarchist League of New Zealand. The option has been taken up by 72 of those affected, including rugby great Colin Meads. Former Labour MP Margaret Shields was one of those who accepted a Damehood, despite receiving a letter from former Prime Minister Helen Clark "setting out why Labour had abolished the titles and saying she hoped she would not accept one"."
