Our latest column on All Out Cricket was inspired in part by Kumar Sangakkara's almost Churchillian MCC Spirit of Cricket Lecture where he railed against the "partisan cronies" that have afflicted the Sri Lankan Cricket Board since the glorious World Cup triumph of 1996.
Sadly, the Sri Lankans are not the only ones to suffer from incapable, unqualified and sometimes corrupt administrators - just ask Chris Gayle.
Indeed, ineptness is rife across the globe with the politics of cricket making an episode of The Thick of It seem like the Magic Roundabout in comparison.
Read 'The Thick of It' here and let us know what you think.
