Moving in one direction

David Hemp, Bermuda's high-profile recruit, reflects on the state of the game as he completes his 100-day residential qualification ahead of the 2007 World Cup.

I have been very impressed with what I have seen since I’ve been here, the basics are all in place and the plans are ambitious so it is a case of moving forward together. We need everyone moving together, that’s the players, the administrators, the coaches, the schools, the Government and the public in general. If we don’t have that, then we might as well give the $11 million back because it is going to get wasted.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
