England’s Cricket

February 2, 2007

As I write these lines – England is at-last showing some decent cricket in Australia, otherwise this English tour to their colony has been really pathetic show of cricketing skills – as we speak here in Lahore/Pakistan in Punjabi Gall Paya Dhol Wajaana Penda Aey– that they are not playing cricket with their hearts – they are just getting rid of the their remaining tour matches – they are just beating the drum which is hanging in their neck for last 3-4 months since the their tour began – an humiliating loss in Ashes 5-0. Just 1 win from 9 matches they have played so far in commonwealth bank series.

With world-cup on the head – England’s team management needs to think a lot otherwise I don’t see them qualifying even for top 8 in Caribbeans.
