"Even when England lost 5-0 in 2006-07 I don't remember them folding like this. This is as bad as I have seen from an England side."

Ronni Irani and Darren Gough aka Dumb & Dumber are the commentary team on Talk****e.
Feel for their 'colleagues', Neil Manthorp and Graeme Thorpe.
Who's Alan Wilkins, btw? The old Glamorgan trundler of the same name? Been in SA too long if so.

England match not on Radio 4 LW or Five Live Sports Extra now. Really poor for a must-win game.
That's good, but don't they share coverage with about four other sports?
There must be some football news coming on soon.
On the original theme of Associate-related ignorance, cricinfo reckon Ireland are going to leave out Niall O'Brien for tomorrow's game against Bangladesh. I seriously hope that's just a boob.
Another rant on the commentary on Associate nations- it was repeated ad finitum yesterday, when Ireland were set 138 to win against Bangladesh, that they'd never scored more than 118 in a T20 international. Figures mean nothing without context, so have a look at the qualifiers for yourself, where Ireland won every single game they played and conditions were so bowler-friendly that only in one match did any side manage to make more than a run a ball.
It would be just as misleading for me to have pointed out that Ireland have never lost a T20 international.
