Fear of flying not stop Wright
LUKE Wright will keep his lucrative lifestyle as an international Twenty20 specialist airborne – despite his fear of flying.
England's lynchpin batting all-rounder in the shortest format has honed his trade in all the high-profile Twenty20 leagues the world has to offer – from India, to Australia and New Zealand.
Wright is due to return to the Indian Premier League with Pune this spring, with the approval of his county Sussex and his country, and has been a big name at the Big Bash down under.
It is in those competitions, up against many of the world's most explosive 20-over cricketers, that the 27-year-old has improved so markedly that he is no longer a fringe England player but a key one.

He proved on Saturday with runs and wickets in their record-breaking victory over New Zealand in Auckland, and England, skippered by Notts star Stuart Broad, will hope he can play another pivotal role in the two remaining matches.
Ahead of today's game, he revealed: "I hate flying – I'm scared of it. I had 38 flights last winter.
"I'm not scared enough for it to make me stop flying – I just can't sleep or relax on flights as I get anxious.
"From that side of it, my Twenty20 adventures are not ideal – but I haven't been tempted to get the boat yet."
