Cheers Rabbitoh, compliments of the season to you as well. Great batting today by Rogers and Watto, legends in white.

Capt Cook is a gonner.

G'day Jo

Happy New year anyway.

To be fair, I would agree our entire bowling squad and wicket keeper especially deserve that high praise.

However our top five batsmen on the other hand were very inconsistent to in some cases absolutely ordinary!

Only opener Chris Rogers late form and perhaps Steve Smith get a pass mark, what that says for England is down right horrific.

They truly are the worst touring team I have ever seen in my lifetime.

I hope they do some soul searching before the one-day series gets underway.



cheers and regards,

H.

G'day Jo

Wife and I are cruising on the Royal Princess - Departure Date: May 23, 2014.

Baltics - Scandinavia & Russia out of Copenhagen.

A long hot summer and the first half of autumn is just as hot these days to endure before then.

That one-dayer last night was brutal, Capt. Cook was all at sea again.
The lads are in big trouble when Dave Warner is playing second fiddle to Aaron Finch (121) and they are resting Watto (Duck) from the next game.

I don't think they can get home soon enough.

Cheers and regards,

R.

What is the difference between the English Cricket Team and a tea bag?



The tea bag stays in the CUP longer!

Lucky most of you prefer a good pot.

Enjoy the flight home to Blighty yet again boys...

This never gets old, the forum thread that keeps on giving.

How have you been? Any cruises of late?

Gee, that is the sixty four dollar question you have asked there.

I really think it is time to have a complete purge of those that have been too long entrenched in the comfy positions of the decision making process for selection of the team itself and it's captain.

There is something endemically wrong with the people in charge, garnered from the results over a long period of time in my honest opinion.

Anyway cheer up, you will probably get a laugh when we don't win the World Cup either.

Those pesky Kiwis are looking the goods!

Here is a couple of chuckles at boys expense.





Even those titans of world cricket, Japan, offered a helping hand.

Japan Cricket Assoc.

Dear @ECB_cricket, this might not be a great time, but as there's room in your schedule, fancy a game in Japan on the way home? #challenge

Like it!
It's going to be an interesting season, for sure. There's lots of interest in the rugby, though, now...friends are flying out to Rome to watch Wales win...
We cruised before Christmas, but the only thing we have booked for now is a month next January- a round trip to the Caribbean from Southampton. Anything to get away from the frosts.....

Hold it, Dave.
Where does UK come into it?
The Aussies were thrashed by England.
Not a Welshman amongst 'em.

Not that we Englishmen gloat, despite such a masterful display of bowling & baiting* against a national team that can't even muster a village cricket-team score.
No. No gloating. Well done to your Australian chappies for giving it a try. After all, it's not the winning but the taking part.

JB

* That was a typo. But I decided not to correct it

JB, I think you'll find it's the English and Welsh Cricket board. Not to mention all the Welsh players who have played.
