Beautiful morning

I woke up today to the pleasant and light touch of the fall sun and golden leaves everywhere. Needless to say the serene view outside my window made me very happy, so it took me some time to log onto my computer and click on Crapinfo. Little did I know that what the Internet world had to offer me this morning, would make me happier.

England lost their opening match to South Africa A. It was T20 and just a warm up, so we can't really conclude that the Poms are bringing back their losing fashion this fall. But what is better than watching England lose? Absolutely nothing.

Not only did they lose, their performance was miles below par. Even by English standards. To give you an idea how bad it was, Alastair Cook was the highest scorer with 22. You know England is fucked when they have to rely on Mascaraman to put in a good performance. "MASCARAMAN TO SAVE THE DAY! Feck, he can only count to 89."

Oh England, you make my day more joyous with your attempt to play cricket. More please, more.

If they play anything close to the T20 match against the A side they will be annihilated in the one dayers and the T20's. After all SA is looking for revenge for the loss in england right!
I hear KP's playing. I want him to score heap loads of runs that will b the only way to make the matches close and of course england to loose.

my predictions : 4-1 SA ODI's
and england not to win the t20 series :)

what are your predictions ?

KP is playing. I want him to fail miserably. He just brings out the evil in me.

My predictions usually don't work when it comes to my own team! So I'm staying away from them. But why 4-1 and not 5-0?

Aditya said...

Well the two 'english' players KP and Morgan will fire in unison. IMHO that's the only match England can win

and of course I don't want a whitewash as that wouldn't do India any good in the rankings!

Purna said...

LOL. So where is India at the moment? Is Aus back on top again? Fuck!

You know, I like Morgan but only because he is Irish. I would support the Poms if all their players were Irish.
