England ....... 6-364
we're doing well my friend.
Cook got past 40 balls today. He faces less than 40 balls in 44% of his innings.
I kid you not. KP did his usual, crap, same as every other England batsman apart from Strauss.
We have three batsmen. Strauss, Colly, and Jimmy Anderson at 11. Jimmy top scored against the Windies last year with 38.
We have got to have the worst selectors in the world. Broad is only there because, sometimes, he bats well. He’s at 8 and he’s a bowler. WTF is that saying to the 7 above him:
"We know you’re sh*t, but we can’t tell the press that, so we have to play this lad who looks about as threatening as a the old bastards you get on a Saturday in league cricket, because you can’t fucking bat you useless sods."
Broad is an embarrassment. Has he looked like taking a wicket for more than one spell in a match yet? No. It’s like shoving me out there.
I wont even start about KP. He is not the `best` player ever. It’s insulting to Viv Richards to even mention Kevin Pietersen in the same book (sentence isn’t good enough), they’re miles apart. Viv looked like he wanted to be there. KP look like he’s better than everyone else even though his form and record says other wise.
Look back at the England batting since the 05 ashes. You will see two failures in that top six every time, two 30’s/40’s and then two 50+ scores. That’s all we do. When the batsmen know they need to get runs they get them then they get nothing else for the next 8 games because they got their runs then.
We have got the worst system in the world. Get rid of the selectors, get rid of the ECB, everything, just get rid of it.
Yes them at TMS get a lot of e-mails from me. I had one read out last year, I was most pleased because it was read out by Tuffers and he’s my hero, he’s a laugh.
