    Why do you enjoy seeing England's cricket team get beaten ?

    Irrespective whether you dislike or even admire England's cricket team, why do you enjoy seeing them get beaten in cricket tests (whether they're Ashes related or not) ?

    I find it funny to see players of such good caliber just lose so badly at times. What surprises me more is the fact that when they lose, they lose comprehensively !!!!!

    I like seeing them lose because SP's response to it on CW is always so fresh and original...
