>Well, it is done. Can’t say I’m in the mood for humour or dissection of what happened, but the time will come. Suffice it to say, we were totally outplayed.
So, what now? Do we have a total overhaul? Is it that the selectors are going with the wrong players for the wrong reasons or is Australia just having a talent drought lately?
What do you think?
Us playing awful, of course, is not to take away from England. They were on form in most areas and stumbled only on a pitch that they weren’t used to. They deserve credit all round. It’s not easy to come down under and emerge victorious, especially with hundreds of drunk blokes swearing at you. Only a few England captains have done it.
So, well done England. A victory well deserved.
P.S. I have already been told I have sour grapes for daring to say England’s fielding was poor on occasion (after spending 15 minutes saying that England deserved the win and that we were generally rubbish, especially our batting). So: England were perfect, they did everything exactly right and made absolutely no mistakes at all.
