Player burn out - an issue?

Well, Mike Soper's views are clear. There is no issue with regard to player burn out. He is the likely ECB Chairman of the future, so you can take your choice - either it's a brave decision to say what he feels, or it's perhaps a little tactless.

Soper has run for the job of ECB Chairman before in 1997, when Lord MacLaurin beat him to the job, but it looks likely he will be successful come the end of September, tactless comments or not, when he's likely to be voted in by the various County Chairmen.

Update: Since this post was written, a rant at how wrong Soper is has been published on BBC 606. Never let it be said that Cricket Burble does not give a balanced view!
