Imagine you are a cricket cult figure/leader.
In your (recent) past you were a bit of a bad boy.
You haven’t touched the booze in over a hundred days.
Now you are offered a contract to play for cricket team owned by an alcohol merchant.
When you get to South Africa, you and the other players enter fantasia, and quickly you realise this isn’t a professional cricket tournament, it’s an entertainment package.
You find it hard to fire up for the games.
The truth is you couldn’t give a fuck about your performances.
And one night you get bored in your hotel, you and your mate have just watched Bill & Ted for the 5th time.
You decide to go out and take in the sights.
Somehow you end up in a bar.
The drinks flow, you partake in a few, and before long you’re having a great time.
Perhaps with your 100 day absence from the beverages, you get a little drunker than you remember, and others have to help you home.
Even though it’s a slow night out for you, it makes the news.
But really, when it comes to Jesse, would we want it any other way?
