Probably plays a bit better in the shires than "We've been shyte, really. What do you think, Beefy?"Surely the Sky commentators blaming the scoreline at stumps yesterday on England's choice of ball will take some topping.
Gower actually made an interesting point during one of the breaks today tho; we're too reliant on swing. When a new cherry refuses to move off the straight (and the first new ball barely did) our only plan B is to flog Fred into the ground bowling back of a length, especially when our spinners bowl pus.
The trouble is it's rather like diagnosing cancer: we can tell you what's wrong, but curing it will be a bastard.
