SOBEIT, well done for not using a swear word or two!

I'm afraid this is what happens when you use computers to manage the team! Probably using them right now analyzing where we went wrong today. It drives me bonkers!

Best we keep our heads down for the Ashes, could be a massacre.....

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

I'm starting to think that maybe I agree with the ICC after all: perhaps the minnows should be kept out of the World Cup.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

The joke(s) will continue to flow as long as England continue to provide the comedy.

At least this time they have the Windies for company.

And that is in my opinion the problem with global sport. Too clinical. Ok it wins games but much of the flair is gone. Playing the odds is the dominant strategy.

Not forgetting political issues with team selection.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

Ohh don't get me started.....

Unfortunately we have a long and rich history when it comes to team selection. No doubt about it we are lurching back into our old habits of picking the old favourites again. During our little stint as a decent side players were being picked on merit, not so now again! I'm a little biased but cannot believe Chris Jordan is not playing for example, a little raw but totally committed and loads of talent!

However a day at Lord's on the sauce or a Friday night at Hove watching a 20/20 with a post match curry comes pretty close to heaven in my world.....
