...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.
...on that? England in subcontinent conditions against a side that had lost one of their previous 15 one day internationals and had just stuffed them three zip in the test series.
...my chips why don't you. Thought England would struggle to manage anything but a thrashing at the hands of one day specialist Sri Lanka. Not so.
...a bit of a fluke now. It's only a little over a year ago that England were crowned World Twenty20 Champions and it really looks like a one off after yet another inept limited overs display.
...way. England batting, bowling and fielding like bums shouldn't take away from a great victory by Ireland in the World Cup or the great innings by Kevin O'Brien.
...of both victory and defeat. Even with a magnificent 158 from Andrew Strauss that surpassed Tendulkar's ton, thanks to more ineptness from Anderson England managed a last ball tie with India.
...KP saying well take positives from this" or "we'll learn from this" after both test matches and ODI's over the next...well will it be few years or will it be shorter than that.
...antipodean antics. When something didn't go their way in the recent ODI against England, when the shoe is on the other foot we see what sportsmanship means to them.
