Cricketers may not form a significant part of the electorate in today's election for the President of the United States of America.

However, with all the polls suggesting a very close contest, they may well be a decisive constituency in the overall result.  So how should cricketers vote?

Fantasy Bob has to take care to preserve his political neutrality, so he is not advocating a preference for one candidate or the other.

He will merely observe that one candidate has received coaching from none other than Brian Lara and may be expected to play down the line.  The other candidate, as far as FB's extensive researches can tell, may not even know what cricket is.

Cricketers must decide for themselves who is the more convincing candidate to be leader of the free world.

Get a bit more onto the front foot Mr President.........


  1. Is Barack Obama really left-handed or is he just trying to imitate Brian Lara? It's hard to imagine Mitt Romney being anything other than right-handed.

    1. Genuine left-hander FB believes - as is David Cameron.
