England's ODI Chances Rated Slim To None

It's not looking good.

Bopara: fail.
Prior: fail.
Shah: fail.

Is it because England don't care or can't play ODIs?

Good afternoon NWG from a cloudy New Jersey. I'm listening to TMS and following commentary on Cricinfo.
I agree with your comment on disinterested players but I actually think England will win this one.
Even the commentators are chatting amongst themselves rather than commentate on the action or lack of it.
Maybe we're all just jaded with this format and let's be honest 7 ODIs is just a money grabbing exercise which is about to fall flat imho!
Enjoy your blog immensely.

you're too much of an optimist Douglas.

Team Luke Wright bowled excellent, just such a pity that The Paine intervened with his batting.


Ben said...

There is no reason why they should not be decent at ODI. They have some good T20 players so these should also be good at 50 overs.

Well they won the Ashes so We all knew they'd lose the ODI's so wats the big suprise??

I'm sure you already know my thoughts on this NWG, but if I can organise for the Aussies to hand England a 7-0 win in the ODIs, will you give us the Ashes trophy back?


Sidthegnomenator said...

P.S. Cricket Corollary - you are absolutely right, Luke Wright has been really good.

I'm searching out an Australian grandparent for him, so cricket australia can poach him ... :-)

The Cricket Corollary said...

Noooo! Sid, frankly I'm not an English fan but it is imprinted in my DNA to cheer on Aus' opposition. Saffer here :) But honestly I am a supporter of Team Luke and as far as I'm concerned he is victorious.


The Nightwatchgirl said...

Luke Wright is property of the English. No arguments. If you want 7-0, you are welcome, Sid.

All South African fans are welcome on NWG. Until the tour this winter.

Then we're enemies.

(NWG realises this is fruitless. South Africa will most likely run England over)

The Nightwatchgirl said...

And she was only joking about the enemies thing. NWG has no enemies, except those that don't like Matthew Hoggard.

Stani Army said... me.

Why didn't you just write my name?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Stani - NWG knows you would love for her to hate you, but she has no room for hate in her life.

Stani Army said...

Aaaah. See everyone?! I knew she loved me...she just has serious trouble saying it as her last comment proves...serious trouble.

Take that Hog-face! I bet he's never had competition like this before eh? Shamone!

The Cricket Corollary said...

I'll secretly cheer Team Luke on at the Wanderers ;)

Stani, nobody can hate you, you're such a great buddy to have, and if somebody does then its their loss.


Stani Army said...

Ahhh Bon, my favourite Soufrican. Timed to perfection as always.

Just don't let Purnmeister hear you saying that or she may form a tag-team partnership with Nightmare. It's all good though, Bella and Es would have them any day.
