The absence of a vote of no confidence in CG’s leadership is what puzzles me.
What is the case for him remaining in his post ? Why do we not hear a clear vision as to the future of first class cricket in England ?

Presumably some must see merits in his abilities and vision to turn things around.

Whatever his talents, they appear remarkably well hidden.


I'm sure some see merits in his ability to hand out vast sums of money in return for not staging cricket matches. Anyone connected with Glamorgan CCC or Sophia Gardens, for instance, would certainly see a case for Graves remaining in his post.
