    t all about spin said Wright who is also the Nottinghamshire chairman There has been concern for some years about some Championship pitches But it is fair to say that the plight of spin bowling in this country brought things into focus Figures showing that spinners bowled only 21 5 of the overs in the 2015 Championship were presented to the committee and we have come to the conclusion that the only way to bring spin bowlers more into the game is to provide better pitches for them to bowl on Of course counties want to win matches and that generally means taking 20 wickets That has to be a reason we have seen a lot of pitches that start a bit green and damp and get better as the game goes on rather than deteriorating to help the spinners But another main function of the County Championship is to develop players for England We don t think it has been serving that purpose for spinners By giving the away team the option of bowling first we hope the home side will be encouraged to produce the best possible four day pitch That will be good for cricket in general and not only for spinners batsmen should also benefit from better pitches which will lead to them facing more spin bowling and if pitches start drier the ball may scuff up a bit more and produce more reverse swing Why are you trialling this in both divisions of the County Championship We did originally consider introducing this as a trial in one division only but after further discussion and debate today we have decided to extend this to both divisions of the County Championship We believe this is an innovation which will be watched closely well beyond the County Championship

    ended his 2015 season So Sykes has put his time out of the game to good use by swapping spinning for scissoring on a ten week course at Total Barber Academy in Shoreditch Although he is fully determined to have a successful career in cricket Sykes is mindful that professional sport can be a short career so has learnt some skills in the East End of London that will serve him well in general life It has been very good for me because having another career option will allow me to play with a bit more freedom said Sykes In professional sport you can feel as if you re playing for your career but if you know you have something solid outside of the game it allows you to play without pressure You start playing the game because of enjoyment and I think that you need to have enjoyment in playing professionally too This is very much something for later years as I don t want to be distracted from playing cricket Leicestershire have shown a lot of faith in me by giving a two year contract and I am very determined to repay that I missed a lot of last season through injury so want to have a good season Just as cricket is a way of life for many people barbering holds a deeper meaning for Sykes It is something that reminds him of childhood and the important process of growing up Sykes acknowledges the skill behind the trade and has learnt a profession that will never be short of business I love the image and craft of it he said To me a barber s shop is a sacred place and there are not a lot of those places around nowadays My dad took me for my first haircut and it is something that you do together at a young age I have always enjoyed a trip to the barber s and regularly go to get a haircut It s not just a place where you go to get a quick haircut you can spend time there with friends and have a coffee or a beer while you are there You have good conversation while you re there and some barber places now offer combined services like a beard trim or tattooing It is all part of image so there is a real cultural significance to barbering It has brought communities together over the years so there is a history behind the art It is a good career in that you have the freedom that it provides It would be great to have my own barber s shop one day but it is also something that I could do as a day job when I go out to Australia for example I ve tried to go into a career that there is a demand for and people will always need to get a haircut Sykes revealed that the opportunity came about through a combination of factors including
