Man, talk about a shaky start

Thank God for Marcus


I'm still riding high on them winning the Ashes. This was a bit of a wake up call.

England are currently cleaning up the least desireable colonies from worst up. Now that Australia has been dealt with, we take a giant leap up to the terriorist harbouring national hotel that is Pakistain.

For some reason a lot of pundits are expecting England to struggle here, but I don't quite understand. In my mind England are the best test team in the world at the moment, and really have only one weakness - the lack of a quality spinner. They can cover it up nicely in England but on the dustbowls of Karachi this is a different story... but I still think they will overcome this and win the series (or at worst draw).

I also would like to send up a few thoughts for their safety in Pakistain, as I know of the terrible experiences some touring countries have been put through there in the past few years.

Thats a fairly concise description of this fairly simple game... 5000 words or so.

damnit. I wish you were still in Britain, then you'd actually have a clue what the hell i'm going on about.


I've only just realised you have no clue what the fuck i'm referring to.





now that i've adequately embarassed myself, I will leave you cricketers in peace.

go-at

(can I just point out the beauty of these cricket threads is that the mods no nothing about the game, so we can pretty much deviate off topic as much as the thread starter allows, and we can tell them its all part of the sport)
