Compton Eyeing England Recall!

IMG_4028

Before you all suggest that I’ve gone completely bonkers, please let me draw your attention to the fact that Compdog has played both First Class and List A cricket for Sri Lanka Ports Authority as recently as March this year.

Don’t England tour Sri Lanka this winter?

Looking at his stats, it appears as though Compton acquitted himself well, even notching a 27th First Class ton in Colombo, sandwiched between two scores in the 90s.

Those scores in his final three innings propelled him to the top of SLPACC’s run charts with 411 runs at a team high average of 44.45.

Okay, so an England recall seems unlikely given that Middlesex don’t even seem to want him at the moment and his England career petered out rather miserably second time around but good on him for going and challenging himself in a different environment and doing well. In fact, given how some of England’s batting pretenders have started the County Championship, maybe a recall for Compton wouldn’t be such a foolish idea after all!
