English Cricket
 
England were bowled out for 58 - their sixth lowest Test total - on the first day of the Test series in New Zealand.

No surprise sadly as with the incompetent buffoons at the helm of English cricket they could not organise a piss up in a brewery.:(

At some point, we will be creating a new Ashes urn because of the abysmal scores we seem to be producing. Mind you, we had this cycle not so long ago. I mean, Australia won every Ashes series between 1987 and 2005, so it's to be expected that we will have another cycle of mediocrity (if we can even call it that) before we get our next generation of stars through that will put us back at the top again.

The original Ashes are tiny (just bails or something), with the current performance you'd need something bigger and burn all the bats as well.

Excuse me ?

For your attention!!

All bat species, their breeding sites and resting places are fully protected by law - they're European protected species. You may be able to get a licence from Natural England if you can't avoid disturbing them or damaging their habitats, or if you want to survey or conserve them .

Like the cricket squad you should be ashamed :dozey:

England's fifth place in the six nations rugby is starting to look like a success ;)

Now there's an idea - use an oval ball and allow the bowler to tackle the batsmen :erm:

It's a cycle. We will go good again, just have to suffer for a while in the meantime.

Probably when those ball tampering Aussies come over Mark.

A captain who seems to not know what direction he is going in plus players who need to learn the art of defensive technique again.

We've just forgotten how to play Test Matches and can't adapt to the conditions. Too much of the One Day and 20/20 crap. Wonder if Geoffrey Boycott is available for selection?

Bad decision to bat first from Root, then they take ten wickets by pitching on a full length and England still continue to bowl short, back of a length stuff.

Good grief it's not rocket science.:mad:
