Scandal in South African cricket where Andre Nel, the mercurial fast bowler known for his temper tantrums (which he blames on an alter-ego called Gunther), has been exposed as a love rat. Yesterday, the South African media reported that he had been cheating on his pregnant wife with some Latvian woman while playing county cricket for Surrey this summer. Now, two more women have come out of the woodwork.
"Two more Nels in the coffin" says the South African Times, which calls the cricketer South Africa's answer to Tiger Woods. A few more scandals need to come out before he can claim that title I think.
A female friend of mine who works in cricket PR and knows Nel well has denied any impropriety herself. "When I went round to his flat all I did was defrost his freezer," she told me. Is that what they are calling it these days?
