    Yardy flies home with depression

    Adam Mountford, TMS producer, has just put it up on twitter.

    If true, it doesn't surprise me. The length of the tournament coupled with the amount of international cricket played is going to hurt some player's mental health. That was my first thought. And if you've got some issues already, the length of time they've been away will play on them. The best place to be is home.

    He must not have been on the Ashes squad, right? So it's not as bad for him as it is for Swann, Strauss, Bell, Trott etc..

    World Cup 2011: Michael Yardy withdrawn from World Cup | Cricket News | ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 | ESPN Cricinfo

    Confirmation. Again, spending two months time away from home, if you're vulnerable to depression, is not healthy.

    Man alive, our world cup being to look like an episode of Survivior. Morgan, Pietersen, Broad, Shahzad already gone (albeit with one returning) and now this.

    If the "report" is true would we be able to replace him? Not strictly an "injury" as such.

    EDIT: I see it is and we can, according to cricinfo, at least...

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I have clarified my original thoughts on this point.

    Aw, feel sorry for the guy. I mean, come on, he must realise how stupid this looks to insensitive ****s like us (and to those with the western male mentality), so I'm sure he must be in a pretty bloody bad space to leave outright.

    Horrible way to end a career really. I can't pretend I think he's a huge loss to the side, obviously, but poor guy.

    Rashid would be a fair move to replace him but if we bring someone in I'd rather have Steve Davies come back. Prior's the biggest problem the side have right now.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    ****. It takes an awful lot to genuinely piss me off, but **** you.

    Really thought you were better than this.

    Yeah, sorry for laughing at his face.

    I'm a horrible person. Worse than those people who say "**** you" to peoples on the interwebs.

    I'm pretty sure that myself and KiWiNiNjA are not the only people who think that they would depressed if they played Cricket like Yardy.

    But in all seriousness hopefully he makes a quick recovery.

    Poor guy, hope everything gets better for him and he can return to the English side soon.

    Really don't think it's appropriate to make jokes about this. Akmal's keeping is a funny thing, but depression is very much not.
