Was it important?
it wasnt that. it was a boring one dayer. again.
just a one dayer
I'm so pissed off with our Cricket team. They won the ashes but now our main 1st in batsman gets like three or nothing or like today, seven.
We are rubbish.
As the kids would say: WTF?
but we are playing the side with arguably the most talented batting line-up in world cricket, on their home grounds, whilst we are experiencing a horrendous run of injuries.
1: Actual batsman
2: Dodgy slogger/wicketkeeper
3: Pieman spinner
To be fair they have a lot of injuries etc blah blah...
Does anyone know why Trescothick went home, by the way? Was it a Thorpe-esque marriage crisis?
Tresco would be better in the middle order, but the stats don't lie - he's one of the quickest English batsmen to various run milestones ever... and when in form he gives good momentum. All good sides have one 'quicker' scorer opening now and he fits the bill.
It won't be long before Vaughn's place is under threat IMO. He's been a genius captain but he better start scoring runs again, and stay fit for more than 2 games. Hopefully against the Aussies in the winter...
