The Strauss Tapes – Part XXX

Click

Is that you Colly? Good. I got your voicemail yesterday and I’ll thank you to re-record that greeting as “Paul Collingwood, England Twenty20 captain” please.

So – how’s the injury rehab going? Round in 75 yesterday then? Your handicap is really coming down.

I’ve had a word with Andy as you asked and he’s absolutely adamant – you can’t have the World Cup on the telly in the dressing room. Apparently in 2006, Fletcher let Harmy get text updates from his mates at the England games, but he had to stop that when he found Harmy in a hospitality box watching  a match on telly when he should have been padding up. Look, you’re in credit after your win in the hit and giggle, so I suggest that you have a quiet word with Andy and suggest that Nasser (who’s also keen on the footy) puts out a story on Sky that the boys are all perched behind laptops analysing their innings over the last twelve months (you know, all that stuff that Stuart’s sister prints out for us and we turn over and use as scrap for the kids to draw on). Then we get the matches streamed on to the screens – Eoin has a friend in Dublin who can get anything (and I mean anything) free off the internet. In return, you just have to tell me what to say when I get asked about Rio Gerrard or Wayne Crouch or whoever, so I don’t look too posh. Deal?

And tell Trotty to take that South Africa flag out of his car window.
