Brilliant. RandyOz, where are you; this is one, you will thoroughly enjoy, considering your consistent and long standing jibes about too many Saffas playing for England, rather England's international team.

@Asadullah Qureshi, yup. As @Nipaos points out, the sketch refers to so many South African born cricketers playing for England (wearing the 3 lions). Smith is 'another' one of those South Africans although he "wears the 3 lions" in a different way. That's why this sketch is doubly brilliant - hints at 2 different themes and connects those seemingly exclusive topics in a funny way!

A good cartoon after a long time and many insipid ones!

@Asadullah Qureshi - The 'another' is a reference to so many South Africans playing for England and wearing the 'Three Lions' cap. Smith wears it in a difference way.
