Less than 24 hours and already I'm SICK AND TIRED of England's boorish and arrogant attitude. :mad:
Get used to it. This is your label now: Boorish and arrogant. Few will ever give you your dues as a great side, and any celebrations in your victories will be attacked as poor sportsmanship.
After a dozen years you will be glad to lose the title of the best cricket team in the world because apparently you :
are always lucky to win,
are always geting umpire's decisions its way when your players appeal,
appeals against your batsmen are never given,
have the temerity to complain when opposition bowlers use highly suspect actions,
have the personal lives of its best players splashed on the front pages on the eve of big matches,
have only ever beaten weak teams anyway, even when they have players like Tendulkar, Lara, Vaughan, Jacques Kallis, Chris Cairns, Allan Donald ...etc in them. The first team that beats you will be the only good team you ever played.
The mantle of world's best team was our curse. And we hand it to you.
You just wait.
