The fate of the England team…..

….is just like a soap opera!

Interim coach Andy Flower says that there’s nothing to worry about.

Sure, I believe that…

Defeats happen all the time…

Once in a while, an abject defeat takes place….

I suppose it’s the timing of the defeat that has got so many conspiracy theories running amok. The ‘KP-Moores’ fiasco, along with the auction of the IPL, has got conspiracy theories being thrown about like money to a bunch of beggars.

For one thing, though people always claim the Indian media to be like a swooping vulture, the English media is no different. I still remember reading an article about the legendary Windies spinner Sonny Ramadin. His actual name was ‘KT Ramadin’. However, Ramadin didn’t know what his initials meant and, since his teachers used to call him ‘son’, he just adopted the name ‘sonny’. However, the English media, when he toured England with WI, relentlessely kept bugging him about what KT stood for!

I don’t think England have too much to worry, except that some heads should be sent rolling (casts a glance towards Ian “I didnt scratch Owais’ eye” Bell)!

As for WI, it’s was just heartening to hear about the victory. I still remember the days (roughly about 15 years ago) when a match against WI would be deemed ‘by default’ to be a victory for them. Their fall from grace has been hard to watch, and i sincerely hope that they keep going up! Nice to see a level playing field.

As for my predictions for this series, its 2-1 in favour of WI!
