How can England have three captains?

It’s fine if you have a clearly defined management structure.

By defining the hierarchy and outlining key responsibilities for all staff, everyone knows their role and they can all work together to meet key business goals.

Team England really needs a corporate motto.

20 Appeals

  1. On-field hydration. That was the best. LMAO (well not literally)

  2. Letter to the Times this morning pointed out that the the captains respective heights are in inverse proportion t the length of the format they are in charge of.

    How do we miss important stuff like that out?

    • Inverse proportion?

      Assuming 90 overs per test match day, that would make Andrew Strauss not quite 7″ high. He’s always seemed taller to me. Maybe that’s just a quirk of television cameras – adds 20 pounds and all that…

  3. I meant you, I’m afte all not a celeb cricket blogger

      That’s a schoolboy error on the letter-writer’s part, because there is a logical reason for that.

      The older you are, the longer the format in which you are captain. This is because as you age, you get slower, so you need the extra time.

      You also shrink as you get older, hence Twenty20 captains are ALWAYS taller than one-day captains who are, in turn, ALWAYS taller than Test captains.

  4. It’s very good, so good in fact that I am beginning to think that you don’t actually do this website anymore, and that you’ve actually got an actual job working for Citibank. In which case, who am I talking to, and who was the you I mentioned earlier? Was it you, and if not, who was it? These are fair questions that demand answers.

  5. I didn’t understand any of it.

  6. i like the ball entrapment

  7. The comment kings love you finally. And you do not gloat ? What kind of Royalty are you royaling sir!

      Give them time. You’re only ever one comment away from a misspelt savaging on Cricinfo Page 2.

    • “Posted by Advance-Australia-Fair on (May 13 2011, 08:11 AM GMT):

      It was too long, not enough funny jokes, and there was a weak punchline.”

      You can never really get a clean sweep over there. Was close, though.

    • What a pathetic cloak of faux-oz-anonymity.

      Let me deal with this.

      Right – which of you humourless bastards called this humourless bastard a humourless bastard?

    • I like the one who gave all the credit to Cricinfo.

    • Someone thought is was “Very very hilarious”, which must have been initially pleasing before the realisation that this was the opinion of a ‘comment king’ who has failed to master both the punctuation of lists and the relationship between modifiers and absolute adjectives. Has anything ever been a little bit hilarious?

    • ..and then I go and spoil it with a typo of my own. Or was that a subtle self-referential touch(Clue: No)?

      Can we have another clue?

    • My first is in No, but not in Yes.
      My second is in No, but not in Yes.
      I haven’t got a third, as I’ve only two letters,
      Which are N and O in that order.

  8. Coroporate motto for Team England:

    Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk

  9. i hate prior

  10. I can understand having a different Test and one-day captain but I think it is going a step too far to have a different one-day and 2020 captain. Surely one of Cook and Broad could do both?
