It has begun. THE world’s

It has begun.

THE world’s top-ranked batsman, Matthew Hayden, has become the first Australian player to take a moral stance on the Zimbabwe question by claiming he would be opposed to shaking the hand of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.

Hayden, a committed Christian, yesterday echoed Hussain’s concerns by claiming a personal meeting with the despot would compromise his strongly-held values and beliefs.

“In my opinion that (a handshake) seriously compromises the values and traditions of what I’m about and I wouldn’t like to do that, no,” Hayden told the Nine Network yesterday.

The article doesn’t mention what faith Nasser Hussain follows.

The Kiwis aren’t particularly happy about being forced to play in Kenya, either.

Update: So unhappy in fact, they will forfeit their points by boycotting the match in Kenya.
