Congratulations England !!!!!

After being here for three months, the English cricket team have finally won a game 😆
In their second one day game against New Zealand, they were set a modest total of 206, and just managed to scrape through with ONE ball to spare – well I guess to them a win is a win, even if they stumbled to victory with the closest possible timing 😛
Previously they have failed miserably in the 20-20 game. In this one, the Australian team set them a total of 221 (a record score actually), and all they could manage was 144. Strangely enough, Australia’s total in 20 overs was more than most of England’s innings in the five tests 🙄
Australia also managed to bundle out New Zealand as well – with a total of 8-289, the Kiwis could only manage a total of 184, meaning Australia won by 105 runs and gained a bonus point. The only shining light for the Kiwis was Shane Bond’s hat-trick, so maybe it is not such a surprise that they also lost to England 😀
So to finish off today, here is a joke for you to enjoy (which actually came from a member of the Barmy Army, so it’s good to see they do have a sense of humour) ….Freddy F. Jnr was at school and the teacher asked all the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came fireman, policeman, salesman etc, but Freddy was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father. “My father is an exotic dancer in a gay club and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes if the offer is really good, he’ll go out with a man, rent a cheap hotel room and let them sleep with him.”
The teacher quickly set the other children some work and took little Freddy aside to ask him if that was really true. “No” said Freddy, “He plays cricket for England but I was just too embarrassed to say.” 😆
