Glenn Rogers typhoid

GLENN Rogers, the Scotland left-arm spinner, has been sent home suffering from typhoid contracted while out in Kenya. The management have given assurances no other member of the party will be infected. Scotland seemed to be warming up for the Calcutta Cup against England at Twickenham on Saturday when Paul Hoffman barged a Canada cricketer to the ground in Nairobi like a rugby player. Hoffman was fined half his match fee for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct during the ICC World League Division One match on Wednesday. He ran across the pitch after delivering a ball and deliberately dropped his shoulder into the running non-striker, Abdool Samad, knocking him to the ground. Samad was able to get up and complete the run, but play had to be stopped for four minutes so that he could receive treatment. Scotland won by seven runs, with Dougie Brown’s 50 not out off 27 balls proving crucial.
