    Borren's decision to field first looking increasingly weird. You'd think the Netherlands would rather play to their strengths.

    But the point is that he chose to play for Holland, and when he had a good run for them, Australia suddenly reclaimed him....

    Hardly helps the development of the Associates if they're conveniently used and discarded like this, does it?

    Not that I disagree, but that's not quite a straight example. Hard to see where Morgan and Joyce would be as cricketers without county cricket.

    He was hardly "poached" though - he'd made it well known that he wanted to play for Australia, and unlike someone like Joyce, he's a lot more Australian than he is Dutch. If anything he was poached by Holland for a little while until he was rightly claimed by the country he grew up supporting and the country whose cricket system got him where he was. Holland were under no illusions as to his intentions when they picked him.

    If there is an injustice here (and I'm not necessarily saying there is), it's him playing for Holland in the first place.

    This is where I prefer FIFA's ruling, which protects weaker teams (Holland, Ireland) from being poached by bigger teams (England, Australia). In football, once you choose an international team, you can't play for another.

    This would only weaken minnows in cricket IMO; it'd discourage the likes of Cooper, Nannes, Joyce, Morgan, RtD etc from playing for minnows in the first place. They'd just hold out.

    Gayle's looking like a man in desperate need of a Quarter Pounder out there.
