    I agree. It's Neil's fault too.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    also, while i agree the issue should be looked into, the captain and/or coach seems to cop flak in these situations which is not always deserved. the players have to stand up and take responsibility for themselves, not blaming all poor performances on someone else.

    There is only one player I am aware of who is blaming the captain.
    Cricketweb Colts Captain

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Well, it can be understandable if the media have questions and don't give support, but it is unacceptable for a player.

    lol.. did you just ignore Hakon's statement? Actually I guess Liam didn't put the full one in..

    I'm not blaming the captain. I'm blaming a batsman who happen to be teh captain. If he was any other player, soemone who aevraged 28 in tests as a batsman. Would he still have his spot in the team after so many tests to prove himself? No, case closed. Sorry.

    Sure I'll take responsibility for myself, but I'm not sure what I've done wrong? In 4 of the 6 matches we've ever won, I was man of the match. So I'm not sure what more I can try and do. I'm not saying we're losing because of Blewy, I'm saying we're losing because we are unprepared to make changes to a team that is struggling to win. Blewy jsut seems the most logical to go a this stage.

    it was made as a whole team, parts of the team may be 110% behind blewy and parts may not be, but the team wont reach its potential if there is friction within its ranks.

    Mail On Sunday
    Fans Want Pickup
    Exclusive by Martin Jenkins-Christopher

    The Mail on Sunday can today exclusively reveal the result of an important poll on the future of the CW side. With speculation surrounding the leadership of the side and rumours that a new coach may want to bring in a new captain, the Mail on Sunday asked you the people who you thought should be the next CW captain after Brendan Goff.

    The result was astonishing, a resounding 67% of respondants replied that they wanted to see CW Black captain Neil Pickup installed after his succesful season with the Blacks. A further 20% suggested firebrand Marc Robbins could fill the role. The two would have somewhat different styles as captain, with Marc definately from the Nasser Hussain school of captaincy. Neither of the players were available to comment, as it is likely they are expressing their support for under fire Goff, whilst secretly harbouring ambitions of securing the job.

    The fans, though, have had their say and the Pickup bandwagon is up and rolling, and the Mail on Sunday can't see Goff's performances picking up enought to de-rail it.
