Flintoff says sorryArjun Miglani |
England captain Andrew Flintoff has apologized to fans the world over for his sides abject performances, admitting that they have been well below par.
Speaking after the debacle in Adelaide, where England lost by 9 wickets in a game which took half as long as it should have, Flintoff said, “n the dressing room the lads are bitterly disappointed…There was a big crowd in today, wanting to see a spectacle, who just haven’t. You think about the people at home, staying up through the night, watching it on TV, get up in the morning to hopefully hear of an England victory. We have let them down today as well, and we have got to improve…We have competed with Australia in the past and beaten them in games. At the moment we’ve just been nowhere.”
As if the performance isn’t bad enough, it comes on the back of Australian coach John Buchanan’s now famous claim that the English batsmen were no better than ordinary.
