It's typical England, they'd have been happy with 300 when 350 was needed. They're 10 years behind everyone else.

Did it hurt your feelings to listen to cricket pundits who don't think england are going to win the world cup. I have heard 2 podcasts since the first ODI loss to Australia last week say that they are still going to win.

I was reading an interesting article about Smith. Apparently when he dropped out of school he was considering becoming English (his mother is English) because he thought he would have been able to make a better living from county cricket had he failed to make the step up to international cricket.

Ryan Harris nearly played for England as well

Sam Hain (what a great name) is the latest ex-Aus under 19s to declare for England and is supposedly poo poo hot, but tbf from the sounds of it he always wanted to play for England

Just reading the guardian comment section on an article about sledging. You English really hate Warner lol. Its like you guys think he is some barbarian that Cricket Australia keeps in a little cage to be released on match day. He is a bit of an oaf but hes not that bad.

He's the WG Grace to our delicate Victorian sensibilities. His frightful attitude and gamesmanship are ruining the gentlemanly game!

Anderson should be told to shut the gently caress up by the umpires more often as well.

That goes without saying. I don't care about sledging but the umpires should tell the biggest and more blatant offenders to pipe down.

Also I find it hard to believe that Warner didn't understand sharma. He has spent enough time in India to pick up the swears. Hence why he said in his non apology that he couldn't speak Hindi theoretically. I don't think Warner is as much a racist as he is an oaf that was just trying to wind sharma up but he should have been suspended.

I guess its the mixed messages the ICC send. David Warner makes millions of dollars a year. He is very likely to have life time earnings from cricket when he retires well into the 50 million territory. So fining him is pointless. Its just an arsehole tax for millionaire idiots because the ICC actually wants players to sledge one another.

Anderson is every bit as bad, he's just far smarter and does that thing where he puts his hand over his mouth when he calls people cunts.
