Bad news, folks

If I had to pick my biggest jip with cricket, it would probably be how quickly the atmosphere surrounding a triumph in one format can be flattened by your team getting battered in a different form of the game.  England, emphatic Ashes winners, are still in Australia (home of some crap Test cricketers) playing more cricket, only not as well as when the kits were white, or off-white in Australia’s case.

It’s quite a rare thing for sportspeople to suffer – it’s not like Rafael Nadal’s fans are ever in uproar following a dominant performance at Roland Garros because it turns out that he’s quite shit at playing table tennis with a desert spoon.

Some folk just like a good moan.  And they’re in for a treat if England carry their ODI form into next month, because the World Cup begins.  Yes, the supposed biggest prize in world cricket, and they’re currently a bit toss.  You couldn’t coach timing like this from out of a textbook.
