I would be very happy to see him playing for Warwickshire but just how much county cricket is he likely to be available for? Hardly any, I would think.

I thought this was an April Fool's spoof when I first read this but am sincerely hoping it isn't! Although he would naturally play infrequently at the moment, he will not always be an England player and on the occasions that he does play a top 5 including him along with Bell and Trott should strike fear into many bowling attacks around the country. Bring it on!

Well the article was dated 31 March; and the Guardian seems to be on to it too:

I do realise, by the way, that referencing a biblical parable in the title is maybe not appropriate for a thread that is about a devout Muslim who is currently on a pilgrimage to Mecca with his brother Kadeer.

By the time his test career is over we could be playing in the mug's  league

Would be great to have him back. I've heard it all before though, even from his dad a few years back. I doubt if money has any bearing on his decision as hes been paid very well by the ecb.

Muslims venerate the Old Testament Bible as much as Christians.  I failed my RE O level, but I think the Parable of the Prodigal Son is from the Old Testament ?

I can see why you failed!
Luke Chapter 15.

Thanks for the correction - I did only get Grade 9 !  My RE Teacher, 'Holy Joe' Bestley (Coleshill Grammar), would be proud of you for continuing my Bible education !
