Congratulations to CMJ

Next to the great Henry Blofeld, Christopher Martin-Jenkins taught me the most about watching cricket. He probably wouldn't see all that much value in my sabermetric methods, but he's partly to blame for me trying to apply them. I've always thought he'd make a good selector. I didn't realize he'd retired from his post at The Times, but last spring and summer were among the most difficult of my life; and a lot went on then that I didn't really keep on top of. Best wishes and congratulations to one of my favourites.
