So frustrating!

comment on the article

Why is it that when Cook and Strauss get themselves in and score 40/50, then they throw away their wicket and get out?! Strauss' wicket was a pathetic giveaway! Half-heartedly played. Why can't we keep our focus and bat for longer periods? like really get stuck in? Look at the partnership between Smith and Amla. The damage was already done by the time Amla got out.

And I really can't see KP doing any better tbh. One of Trott or KP HAS TO score a century if we our to stand a chance of wining this test match.

I'm mistaken. You're right, KP will save England and is the best English batsman. He has performed better than Smith, doesn't ever give his wicket away and is the safest pair of hands in English cricket. I accept that I'm completely wrong.

Along with everyone else bar Collingwood.
Hardly enough to damn him is it?

Who's 'damning' anyone? He's playing badly and scoring very few runs. That's not 'damning', it's a fact. Other players are not playing well either. And I wouldn't 'damn' them either. I watch the cricket and observe whether players are playing well or not in my opinion. Only The Sun, The Mail, Sky reporters and other hysterical quasi-tabloid types go around 'damning' people. I just noticed he was playing badly and mentioned it. Obviously, we don't share the same opinion of badly. If you think he's the greatest thing ever, I'm happy for you.
Here's one that baffles me.
How can a player play against his own country with pride in another country's badge? Beats me.

Oh dear, an Frenchman writing about cricket now. Yes, drop him. He's out of form.
P.S. A 'Pommie" is an Englishman.

Probably as well the French don't play cricket.

They may however, know what trolling is. Perhaps some jolly playground game. I'll never know.

Au revoir mon petit débile.
