    I think I'm going to emigrate, get Zlobodanian nationality or something. It's just too humiliating to be a cricket fan and English. Tbh, I reckon they should bring the whole squad home right now, sack the lot of them and send a completely new (and properly-prepared) squad to the WC. Since any team can only do worse than the current team on purely mathematical grounds and a new team could plead inexperience, it's got to be more viable than sending our current crop of overpaid embarrasing slackers.

    omg. I got up, watched england get to about 50-1 (albeit slowly as always :rolleyes:), then went to bed. Get up and it's happened AGAIN! I really don't know what to say any more. Some of the guys got out with stupid shots, but I dont think that should gloss over the fact that they were still batting really slowly (apart from loye and bell). Collingwood got 3 from 17 balls i think, then still got out. I really think he either shouldnt be playing, or should bat further down the order after all the powerplays and stuff are over.

    Yeah, it's a shame nobody would stay with him. The tail going for all these massive drives? At least wait until Yousuf reaches his century ffs, it's just not cricket!

    Will be interesting to see what the response is though, I can't imagine a HUGE total with the likes of Asif bowling at them, but they should aim for at least a lead of 100...

    What a catch by Inzy! :eek:

    SA set to make a lead, but not a substancial one, so Pakistan aren't out of this yet. Though with these low totals we're set for a result instead of a draw, and SA must be favourites still...

    All I can think of saying is that we should send the cricketers to the rugby WC this year and send the rugby squad to the West Indies. That should significantly improve our chances in both WCs and would have the added benefit that both squads would return so badly crocked that the selectors would be forced to bin most of them and start from scratch. I mean, the majority of the squad going out to the WC will be there on the strength of the experience they can bring to the team. After our performance in Oz, surely experience is a handicap?

    Well, at the risk of agreeing with a potential Barf supporter (:fight: out, Satan, out ;shoot; ), I reckon you and me between us could put together a bigger total than all 11 of that shower we've got out there.

    They may do, but nothing can gloss over the fact that pakistan batted crap today (even though this thread may not ever seem to admit it) Well bowled SA, well batted yousuf, and well bowled pakistan in the end to keep SA within reach. Advantage SA today.

    A lead of 50 by SA would be interesting.
