England Win. Oh Yes. It's True

After all the tension, when things looked like they could go either way, England rose above the pressure from a nation and won the series against Bangladesh today.

Alastair Cook has a 100% record as a captain (almost unheard of). Who needs Andrew whats-his-name?

The best news to come out of this tour is surely that Ryan Sidebottom has proven that he's too old/too moody/has hair too long/is a pain/has an ego that is disproportionate to his level of skill and will now hopefully be permanently dropped from the England side.

Which means there's room for one Matthew Hoggard in the team.

Hoggy's been on the IPL couch on ITV Mare. I didn't tell you? Shame, must have slipped my mind.

Stani, you may think NWG doesn't actually like cricket, or watch it, but she does and she has seen him on the couch delivering insightful comments about the weather and the cheerleaders.

That doesn't mean he's turned in to a potato and can no longer play cricket for England.

Oof! Assumptions assumptions! All out attack to defend lover-boy eh?

You said that last 'potato' bit, not me. Are you suggesting something by it by the way? :)

And I bet he was insightful in regards to the cheerleaders!...and I bet you noticed when he was!

...and IPL is not cricket Mare...it's something else with bits of cricket in between.
