TWO of cricket's big hitters are ready to square up for a meeting this week that may end in another verbal punch-up, writes TED CORBETT.

In the red corner is Lord MacLaurin, the chairman of the England Cricket Board, who last week took charge of the interview that ended when England coach David Lloyd said he would quit after the World Cup.

In the blue corner is former Test opener Brian Bolus, newly-elected chairman of the England Management Committee.

They had what onlookers described as "a blazing row" during a lunch this week over Lloyd's departure. They will have the chance to cross swords again this week at a meeting of the First Class Forum, another powerful ECB committee.

Bolus would not talk about the row yesterday but the county officials who elected him are furious at reports that Lloyd's pounds 75,000-a-year contract was paid up in full.
