England summer cricket internationals

Recommended Posts

I can't wait for several tied super overs in a row given they've taken away a definitive ending time...

Not bitter at all are they :laugh:

My favourite being their constant use of inverted commas around the word 'victory' to indicate that we didn't actually win  :winner_third_h4h:

"England's 'victory' at Lord's was a contentious ending to one of cricket's most iconic fixtures, drawing criticism from numerous figures in the game bitter Australians"

Says it all that NZ were incredibly gracious in defeat whereas Australia, who weren't even involved in the game, are still banging on about it!

Yes, that is classic. To be fair I'd have been absolutely FEWMIN to lose any match in that way but the rules are the rules, whether you agree with them or not. In fairness, how many ties have there ever been in one-dayers? You certainly wouldn't expect it in a World Cup final.

If the convicts had won in the same way they`d be rubbing our noses in it for years.
