...stay. Alastair Cook's stint as England cricket captain had run its course before the drubbing in India.
...series? England have convincingly won the first test match of their last two series only to roll over and capitulate, after their 169 run victory in the Ashes opener can they stop the Aussies at Lord's?
...Bell, Broad and Anderson. The cricket fan who stumped up what was probably a decent whack might have actually got their money's worth in the one day series between England and New Zealand.
...runs. How bad are India at Test cricket? They had England one nil down, down and out, and walk away with a 3-1 series defeat with the most miserable displays you've seen.
...runs. England finally managed to get some runs on the board in a test match and they still couldn't win a game. Yorkshire runs it was that they wasted.
...seen? The only way to improve this Aussie touring side is to get all the old blokes in the crowd and media boxes to don the baggy green cap and get back out on the pitch.
...heroes. Funny how England cricket team can stop sucking donkey balls and win a one day international when the pressure is off because the 3 match series has been lost.
...Root. Yet again another England bowler stood on the podium collecting the man of the match award after skittling New Zealand out when they would have been in that position if Joe root hadn't saved England from a batting collapse.
...England. Tykes doing not bad in their return to the County Championship top flight, while their players are away helping England get back on the winning track.
