A Lesson For England

England when will you learn? England reminds NWG of a girl who never learns after her boyfriend cheats on her repeatedly. It means he's no good.

This is the same lesson England fail to learn.

Matt Prior = run outs.

It's probably not always his fault. NWG doesn't want to be too harsh (she does, on occasion, have a nice streak). It could be that his other England team mates don't really trust him either.

Perhaps today's example was of Eoin Morgan just wanting to get off the pitch. That he knew nothing good would come of it.

But it is surely more than coincidence that whenever Matt is out there, there is a run out.

NWG would like to teach Matt some lessons.

1. Only run when the other batsmen tells you to (you cannot be trusted).

2. Stop running when the other batsmen tells you to (you cannot be trusted).

3. Try and score runs to make up for the fact that you can't be trusted.

4. Never run your captain out.

Excuses 101

Cook: "whoops, I wasn't ready, that doesn't count, does it?"

KP: "my ankle hurts."

Strauss: "I was thinking about twitter."

Trott: "I only like playing against Australia and South Africa."

It Came From Outer Space


It seems the universe has something to say.

Quite what is unclear.

A meteorite landed on the boundary yesterday at Sussex.

Was this the universe trying to participate in a game of cricket or was it trying to assassinate one of the players?

Either way, to send a 4.5 billion year old rock to Sussex at least caused a bit of excitement.

If it was headed to hurt Ricky Ponting (just to follow the tradition of causing him some sort of injury when he comes this way), it failed.
