Simon Stevens says ECB’s Hundred tie-up with maker of Hula Hoops undermines fight against childhood obesity.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has been criticised by the head of the NHS for allowing KP Snacks to sponsor a new tournament aimed at getting more young people involved in playing the game.
