Assessment[edit]

Hello Ian, I see you assess a lot of cricket articles. For some reason, you seem to assess stubs as start class, even in very obvious cases. I don't know whether you just drop a template in from a collection of WikiProject options, or how this happens, but could you either please leave the class open, or assess according to what class it actually is?
