For years I've said I'd rather see England lose having a go rather than just lose, so it is refreshing to see the mental change in their attitude. It will be interesting to see if it lasts. by supercityfan

Review of The 2015 Cricket World Cup by thedevilinme

Advantages: Run fest fun

For the third time in five World Cupís Englandís pathetic one-day side failed to qualify from the group stages. The Bangladesh Tigers did the deed this time around with a thrilling 15 run victory to progress and England home before the postcards. Peter Mo ... Read review

Excellent review - sadly England will never do well at a World Cup whilst they pick players who play steady cricket like Ballance and Bell - pick players who excite like Hales and Stokes, and please get Butler higher up the order where he can take a game away from the opposition. by supercityfan

Good review by wazza115
Ordinarily, Cook would have gone by now but there is no logical successor. What he needs is to go back and get his confidence in County cricket but since the ECB brought in central contracts the only cricket the so called elite players play is at International level. Cook and Bell for that should go back to playing county cricket in between the tests to recover their confidence. by supercityfan

Review of Sydney Cricket Ground by thedevilinme

I think it is blatantly obvious that the best England players aren't selected. Aussies did not win the Ashes we handed them to em. They're still an ordinary team, who've had extra-ordinary luck. Yes - Flowers has got to go by attitude alone. His interview didn't persuade me he has the fight. If anything he reminded me of a corporate man thinking of his retirement. Top reviewing. by 1st2thebar
Spineless showing by England, agreed, though I also think the current Aussie side are more than useful and came into the series under-rated. I think Flower, as man in overall charge, should carry the can. Cook is talented enough, and still young enough, to make a comeback as a batsman. Whether he's a good enough captain is a different question. by torr

I'm afraid you may well be right, though I don't like some of the Aussies' non-playing tactics. As a matter of interest, are any of them non-Aussie-born? by Viborg
