Well done England

Yesterday I played cricket, sparing myself the painful experience of watching the English soccer team. My team won. It was a rare and glorious summer day. It was an unusual treat to feel warm.

We kept in touch with how the English team were faring. The icing on the cake for us was hearing that England won the Australia series 3-0. Let’s celebrate! Let’s fly the England flag for our cricketers.

    What? England beat Australia? I thought that wasn't allowed…

      Scotland beat India on Wednesday, so these things can happen. As expected, normal service resumed on Friday with India thrashing Scotland.

    We beat the Aussies, and hardly a mention in the media.

    Instead they promote the failure of our football team.

    Sounds about right.

    In many State schools cricket is rarely played. There are some young boys who don't enjoy or aren't skilled enough to enjoy football who are offered rounders and/or volleyball instead. Consequently cricket is seen as a boring, slow game.

    A nail biting finish, so hopefully it transfers across to the ashes

    Just be grateful the Germans haven't taken up cricket!

    JR one small request if I may ~ it is football not soccer.

    Only women and Yanks call it soccer.

      I believe the correct term is 'Association Football'!
