Playing For Their Average?

And very average they are too as England, quite rightly in my opinion, are knocked out of the Cricket World Cup.

If we honestly think we deserve a place in the semi-finals after only beating Canada, Kenya, Ireland and Bangladesh, we absolutely 110% do not. The opening batsmen have been too slow, the middle order unreliable and the tail has been firmly between its legs. The bowlers have huffed and puffed but created very little pressure of any note. KP failed to hold his nerve against his old country, Michael Vaughan looked miserable as sin and the biggest splash Freddie made was off a pedalo. Load of bloody rubbish. Still, that's what happens when you invent a sport; other countries eventually work out the rules and then you're scuppered :(

In other news, when we get back from Venice, it's time for GRACC nets again - first match is 26th May!
