Oh Dear

Well, as NWG types this, England are going down the drain. Again.

Actually, again again again.

Is it just NWG that thinks that England left the building as soon as they picked up that little urn?

When will they return?

Or, more likely, are they all clones and the ECB are planning two identical looking sides; one that wins and one that loses?

And, is this or this this not to prevent illegal betting? (likely)

NWG is running out of ideas as to why England are so rubbish this series. The worrying answer might well be the simplest: because they just are.

No Rest For The Wicked

Poor Jimmy. Poor Colly. They're all tired and worn out, what with all the playing cricket and everything.

But all this makes NWG wonder.

Who will be picked in their place?

NWG's vote is for Trott to fill in for Collingwood. But who should cover for Jimmy? It's pretty obvious that a 7-0 whitewash is not out of the question (care?), so England could be bold and try someone new.

But will they?

NWG's answer is probably no.

And the most obvious question is: how has Ryan managed to keep his place?

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?
