Liam Plunkett's sad situation

My heart goes out to Liam Plunkett, the lanky England seam bowler. Apparently his father is not doing very well with a life threatening kidney affliction and the only possible donor identified is Liam himself. But if he goes ahead with the donation he will end up being unfit for cricket. The doctors, it seems, have opined that cricket would be too taxing for a man with a single kidney.

So the choice for him is his father's life on the one side and his career and national duty on the other. Cruel, cruel fate.
