Oh dear all is not well on the Cricket scene

England was beaten yesterday in a 20/20 game by Holland, which didn’t go down too well with the crowd at Lords.
I didn’t even realise they played cricket in the Netherlands but it would seem they’ve been at it for years.

‘Cricket has been played in the Netherlands since at least the 19th century, and in the 1860s was considered a major sport in the country’


Then of course Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds was sent home from the same tournament in England for drinking.

Seems he was bending his arm in the wrong place – should have been with a ball on the cricket pitch and not with a beer glass in his hand


Perhaps I should offer these two budding champions to the selectors

They are a bit older now but both front up for their local clubs in the summer

They had their preference even that long ago, the one with the ball is a pretty good bowler and the one holding the bat is a pretty good batsman lol
