If they only made 51 against the Windies, how much would they make against Aus? -51?

I was shattered to hear what happened in Pakistan. I'll need to look up what Gideon Haigh wrote about it, he's really the authority on cricket.

A very, very sad day, and I don't know what to say about it.

haha especially given that we won at South Africa, and England lost to the WEST INDIES! LOL

1-0 loss in a 5 (well really 4) test series is hilarious.

England are the absolute laughing stock of the cricket world, really. Its captains are more interested in getting paid squillions to speak in British tabloids than keeping the team together and focusing on actually playing the game.

Meanwhile, West Indies don't suddenly look so bad anymore.

Its true

Strauss is ok as a player - not a great captian
Cooke has a phobia of getting past 50- he gets out in the 50's all the time
#3 position we have no one of any quality
KP- arrogant bastard
Freddie - need him fit but i think he will quit tests after 5-0 hiding from Aussies
Prior - decent with the bat but awful keeper - just conceded most byes in a test in this last match
Broad - the man for the future - problem is he will turn out crap as he is learning from some dead wood around him
Anderson - quality bowler and fielder
Harmison/Sidebottom/Khan - all rubbish - they should never play again
Swann/Monty - swann is good. Monty after being dropped has come back a bit better

And we dont have a coach

And we are shit at ODI's and 20-20's

So yea - we are the laughing stock of the world
and if there is a miracle and they beat Aussies - they will go 5 steps back as they will celebrate for 3 years and do jack all, just like after 2005.

I think the England side need a real hard-arsed coach. Someone who can introduce some professionalism. And the admins need some balls. KP needs to be pulled into line, and if he's going to cry about it, tell him to fuck off. His net value to the team is negative (just like Ponting) as his batting is cancelled out by him being a total pork-chop-bigger-than-the-team-knobsticle.

I would like to see the next England coach by a hard-nut. Someone who will run them into the ground fitness-wise, and not be scared to drop people who's head isn't 100% focused on the game.

As for Australia, all they need to do is drop McDonald. I mean, seriously???? McDonald??? He bats poorly at 8 (Brett Lee is much better as a bat, and so is johnson), and he bowls medium-paced pies. Seriously, at times I swear you almost see batsmen calling for rags in the middle so they can wipe the sauce off their bats... Hussey bowls just as well. Either pick a proper bowler like Bollinger or even mcGain, or pick another bat and give more bowling workload to Katich (who takes wickets EVERY time he bowls)

I have to say South African cricket is in a total panic.

Let's have a look at who they have chosen to lead their team in recent history.

Graeme Smith is the captain, but while he was injured, they have used
Neil McKenzie in Sydney
Mark Boucher in Durban
Ashwell Prince for 24 hours until
Jaques Kallis has been name today for the 3rd test.

Seriously guys? ever heard of stability?

Granted, Ponting is probably the 5th or 6th best leader in the Australian side, but at least they stick with him, rather than chopping and changing

Hang on - Sidebottom was your best bowler last year. I had him in my team of the year.

Bollinger's injured, but yes they should've picked McGain.

Sidebottom is unfit now and he is useless outside of england

I see India battered NZ in ODI's

He wasn't injured before the first test. I'm 100% certain McGain will play. He has had the most enchanted run into this side, so better not fuck up his chance.
