Out and Not Out

Already out

Every cricket team has members who get out, but not many have cricketers who are out, even when they’re still in—at least not openly. I refer, of course, to Steve Davies, the sometime England wicketkeeper/batsman, who’s publicly announced that he’s gay. The rest of his team and the manager, we’re told, had been informed some time ago. People had been supportive, he said, and statements have been made to that effect. It’ll be interesting to see if other cricketers, or professional sportsmen, follow suit, and what will happen should he get barracked by the crowd in a game. One would hope that the individuals, as they have in other sports, are ejected from the ground.
