Norwood's on Fire
Not only should Burgey be banned for his racist tirade, but all Australian posters have questions to answer having stood by and watched this unfold.
There should be some consideration given to how rough it must have been for them on day 2 at the MCG. There is no way any team would play to their normal level after something like that. Also why India in the Oval test were pretty great too.Broad said:"We spent day two of the Boxing Day Test match testing for Covid and having guys moving out of their hotel rooms, away from their families, so they were no longer classed as close contacts. When you are faffing about with external stuff like that, it drags your focus away from where it needs to be."
Yeah for sure, it certainly wasn't ideal. And I'm sure the last 2 years has been ****ing hard beyond imagination for this England team who have carried on regardless to keep the ECB coffers topped up.Yeah but it would still be mentally exhausting tbh
It's actually worked to their benefit to have a couple of injuries/ unavailabilities. Even though you never want them, it's basically meant the bowlers have beenAs abject as the English batting lineup has been, credit must go to the Aussie bowlers too.......they have been relentless and are world class outfit. I think the only chink in their armour is when they are put under real pressure, England are just not good enough to have been able to do that.
They're English. They deserve both barrels. Especially given how they've disrespected our hospitality by coming over and playing like this. Although, to be fair, they've been on a rapid downhill slide (both in cricketing terms and as human beings) since the great quinoa and chickpea fiasco of 2013/14.Not much 'quality' about his anglophobic rants. If he launched a similar tirade about India he'd be barred.
I was just listening to a podcast that featured him last night (non-cricket - The Little Dum Dum Club) where he described discussing England's failures in this series as "like being forced to do an autopsy on your favourite dog".Every Andy Zaltzman cricket article deserves to be posted on CW. He is awesome.
I am increasingly of the view that there aren't many worse jobs for an English cricket fan than working as a commentator or journalist when they are playing a test series overseas. They would have to offer me a lot of money to watch every ball of this series.I was just listening to a podcast that featured him last night (non-cricket - The Little Dum Dum Club) where he described discussing England's failures in this series as "being forced to do an autopsy on your favourite dog".
