Are the English cricket team rubbish, or what ???

Another completely embarrassing display by the bunch of clowns that the English Cricket Board sent over here to pretend to play their own game. After a near record-breaking lowest ever score of all out for 110 (in just 34 overs), Australia was able to pass that total in just 24 overs for the loss of 1 wicket. How’s this for demolishing the tail end – 6-103 7-106 8-106 9-107 10-110 in 6 overs. 😆
This was supposed to be a day/night international game – two problems with that description …
- the game didn’t even last until night time 🙄
- this bunch of no-hopers shouldn’t really even allowed to pretend to play at international level 😳 – maybe the Lalalty local league would have been more suitable …..
I think this article from the Sydney Morning Herald say it all …
In previous matches, New Zealand got their revenge of having been the only team to have been beaten by England so far, by making a respectable total of 210, and then bowling England out for 120 in 37 overs. Once again we saw a collapse of 6-107 7-107 8-107 9-120 10-120 in 4 overs.
Before that, Australia managed to win a tight one over New Zealand with 8 balls remaining. They actually had a bad start, going 1-6 2-6 3-17 before Symonds and then Hussey (unbeaten on 65) steered the ship back on a straight path. The highlight of this game was Michael Clarke (who ended up getting 75) coming in to bat at number 3 after Ricky ponting was literally caught with his pants down when it suddenly came time to bat 😳
