If he was playing for that team he might even have an England cap by now.

Time to be a bit controversial- so I'll throw something in and see what response (if any) I get.

Muddlesex spend a lot of time and energy reaching out to communities, and trying to encourage black and asian players to get involved, but in terms of the professional squad with Ravi's departure, there is nothing to show for all this 'effort'.

Why would that be?

Well, get someone like Ravi, and it appears we want to make him 'english' in the sense that I have heard the club disapproved of his diet, because they clearly didn't feel he ate the right things, and wouldn't follow the recommended diet designed to make him as fit and strong as they thought he should be.

But the bloke took wickets.
