Andrew Miller from Cricinfo. He is the worst kind of Pommie...a Freddie lover. Wrote a whole freaking article defending his lover boy. I don't give a shit about this Freddie debate. His contribution to cricket has been too insignificant for us to even dwell on him. But Miller, this was uncalled for:
Next February's tour of Bangladesh, an entirely unloved adjunct of the Future Tours Programme, could become the first international campaign ever to be used as a warm-up act for a domestic tournament. That, however, is more a comment on the worthlessness of Bangladesh as international opponents than the worthlessness of international cricket per se, because funnily enough, the IPL - a competition that is regarded by some as the enemy of the international game - seems to recognise, at least on the face of it, the value of country v country cricket better than most of the participating nations.
'Entirely unloved adjunct of the Future Tours Programme'. Is that so Miller? Then why make Bangladesh play day-night tests against you guys in the hopes of making the tournament interesting? Why put in so much effort? I'll tell you why. Because your joke of a team will never be able to achieve anything playing against the big boys. So you pick on the little ones and make it harder for them. Then you pay the ICC to nominate you. You fuckers need to play the bottom ranked teams so that people don't realize that England is weak, disgustingly inept and not at all interested in playing the game they supposedly invented. Home of cricket my ass.
'Worthlessness of Bangladesh as international opponents'...look around you. Australia is currently using you assholes for net practice, nobody things you are serious contenders for the Champions trophy and you have NEVER been favourites for any tournaments despite having played cricket for ages. Bangladesh does not even have half the facilities that you ungrateful fuckers have, yet they managed to make a mark in both ODI's and Tests. On top of that, we are actually talented. Give us the 'western' world's development strategies and we will be light years ahead of your current team. Don't deny it. When have you guys ever been called unpredictable and not to be written off? And don't even get me started on a player by player analysis. You have only two...and they are not even properly English.
I've only hated the Pommies till now but today I am declaring war. I like the prospects of England not taking us seriously. It means we can creep up and bite them in the ass. We might lose, but we will take your sorry asses down with us. Come to think of it, England might just achieve new heights of humiliation all by themselves. It's what they are good at.
