I'm assuming this is for his longevity as much as anything. After all, he has scored a third as many runs again as England's previous most prolific scorer, and has appeared in more tests than anyone else for England. You could argue that if that doesn't deserve a knighthood for services to cricket, no-one is ever going to get one.

I am a little surprised, still, as I thought they'd more-or-less stopped giving out sporting knighthoods except for Olympians who win multiple golds.

Paul Collingwood is worthy of a knighthood on the basis of being the 1st England captain to ICC tournament glory :halo:

Massive congratulations to Charlotte Edwards on becoming a dame. First England captain to win the World Cup and World Twenty20 in the same year is a remarkable feat.

All hail Dame Charlotte Edwards :bow: :clap
