It’s over. What started so promisingly on November 26th has finished in unparalleled humiliation in Sydney on January 5th. Outplayed in every department.
Michael Atherton wrote an excellent article a few weeks ago stating that the successful team of the last few years which was very much Andrew Strauss’ legacy was merely inherited by Alistair Cook, and he now has a chance to build his own winning team.
But it is a long way back from here. I listened until Tea, I really wanted Carberry to stick around, but once we’d lost 3 wickets in ten balls after the tea break, we were never going to take it beyond three days.
So, 5-0. Turn the page and enjoy your Sunday, 2015 will be round soon enough. Move on soldiers, forget what’s been, swagger on into horizons new.
Great blog, well worth a read!
The pleasure is all mine.
Robson in, cook to number 3. Root, Bairstow, borthwick, back to their counties. Keep monty for the time being . Bresnan should never play for England again. Benefit of the doubt to kp, bell and Anderson.
Strong views on Bresnan. Cook to number three is a new one for me. How do we prepare for pacemen in the future?
I’d love to leave a witty, intelligent comment, but I just don’t know anything about cricket.
Well keep reading!
