You may want to check ball tampering and English captains/players. Be aware that the penalties imposed on our trio of miscreants may set the standard internationally provided of course various cricket boards have the balls to do so.

This thread is comedy gold. On a more serious note, I hope the aussies can somehow rekindle their sporting prowess again, across all disciplines. Alas, as one of the unhealthiest nations on earth, I fear for them as they turn into a nation of fatties..I hope they can turn it around :sad:

froddo, i thought we were the kings (and queens) of sitting down sports? certainly at the olympics its no coincidence that uk does well at cycling, rowing and sailing. how dare you come for our speciality.

i see the england womens cricket team are well placed to finish a very respectable second place in their version of the ashes, take that aussies.

Strange we have five world cups poms one given to them by incompetent umpires and if you want to mention sandpaper what about the then captain Mike Atherton and his pocket full of sand. Seems to me might be a case of trying to convince yourselves that your team actually won.:rolleyes:

Don’t think I’ve Seen  any moaning from New Zealand fans on here about the result. Unlike the rest that can’t take it.  Total respect for the black caps.

It doesn’t take much to do a bit of research and find out that since Australia imposed such high and unprecedented penalties ON THEIR OWN PLAYERS that the degree of swing achieved internationally is tiny in comparison by all teams.  Me thinks there was a bit going on ... suddenly swing bowlers are just medium pacers like they used to be.

Oh, then there is 66M population vs 5M.  And only won because of poor umpiring and a best player born n NZ.

 

pityful that they get excited over that really.  Sad.

We’ve won more ashes games and more world cups than the poms, the difference between Aussies and poms is when we catch ball doctoring we punish hard, unlike the poms :)

Did not lose in my book.

NZ - 241 for 8

Eng 241 ALL OUT.

Apparently that is how it used to be decided, 

worst luck for Nz they changed the rule, otherwise it would’ve been them , it’s a fine line sometimes 

shit happens

Oh come on, Mike had been relaxing on the beach.

 

Actually we need no convincing we won - the Trophy on the mantlepiece shows that.

If only   :25:

All Major sports bodies nowadays trawl the globe for the best talent and fast track them into their national side ,  like it or not .

What really gets me is the people who jump from one nation to another ,

Eoin Morgan should never have represented England at any level after playing for Ireland for many years , and i am an English cricket nut .

For the Aussies who are not aware , do a google search on Keppler Wessels as a for instance .

Should not detract from what was an excellent world cup and advert for the sport .

i think every australian sport fan over 30 would know that. At the time a totally different era with tony greig and graham hicks a pom . now tell me why was KP classified one.

As australian sports fan the list is endless with similar name you may never know about  like hana mandlikova and tatiana gergoriava two of my favorites + we have aussie joe bugner

Even Yorkshire no longer insist their players are born and bred in the County.

(a few dodgy results to those buggers on the wrong side of the Pennines changed that)

The World is going to the dogs.

We have KP nuts for sale in Tesco - reason enough I'd say.
