What can I say? I’m as far removed as can be from the world of cricket, but just about manage to get news through the internet of what the hell is going on in AUS and NZ. I did not think performances could get any worse than being beaten in under 15 overs by NZ, but evidently I’m wrong. Poor old Root posts 121, the team scramble above 300, and then lose by 9 wickets. Gobsmacked.
