Cockiness Is Bad

So England had a warm-up game.

They won.

That's the good part (and KP remembered how to bat. Also definite plus point).

But, Collingwood said:

"We've come out thinking we've got a lot left in the tank."

NWG should hope so. England have only played one game and they have about 400 to go this summer.

NWG thinks if you've got nothing good to say (or sensible) don't say anything at all.


Other phrases to be avoided:

"At the end of the day."
"Ah look."
"We played a good game."
"We don't mind losing."
"I'm hungry."
"Freddy's injured his little finger."
"Cricket's a bit boring."
"At least the sun's out."
"At least it's raining."
"Twenty20 doesn't really count for anything."
"Hi mum."

Cockiness is cricket, in life. Cockiness is bad.
