The Ashes
« on: December 20, 2021, 10:20:39 am »
Another crushing defeat, so two down with three to play. Now that's not an impossible situation - it has been know for a team to win numbers 3,4 and 5 after losing 1 and 2. One small problem. The only time it has been achieved was (from memory) in 1936-7 by Australia who had a middling useful chap by the name of Bradman in the side.
Still one can hope

I can't see things changing, lackadaisical batting & fielding discipline's are a systemic failure in the entire unit. Our best bat so far apart from Joe, Malan is post 34 too ...

We should let the football players play cricket and the cricketers play football. We'd still lose but it would be more entertaining than watching them now.
