Hard to call it a win (England cricket team in Australia)

British, Personal, Sport Add comments

It is a little comical that the English cricket team could win in the one day tournamant in Australia.

Only “we” could lose ~15 games, and then somehow win a couple in a row to end up victorious.

    Its one of the peculiarities of the format, you can limp in to the finals and then win the thing – We did it to South Africa several years ago. IIRC they weren’t all that happy about it.

    Dion, don’t be so harsh on England – Collingwood etc played out of their skins to win this. The fact that England were comprehensively outplayed in the initial stages of the tournament, and then managed to “win” the tournament is no fault of theirs. As Tim de Lisle noted last week the tri-nation ODI tournament Down Under is bit of a bore (http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/columns/content/story/279028.html) – the format can do good with some rethinking.

    Australia’s ODI woes started around the time Andrew Symonds got injured – and I don’t think that is a coincidence.
