Four wickets for two runs to record a win over the West Indies by 18 runs. That was the latest instalment of England’s ongoing experiment to see how much tension human beings can endure.
It’s just plain ridiculous now. It doesn’t matter who they pick, how they play, who they’re playing against, there is always one constant – tension that could prolapse your bowels.
This match featured Jonathan Trott hitting every other ball for four, Luke Wright salvaging the innings and James Tredwell and Ravi Bopara as the ‘go to’ bowlers when England bowled. What world are we living in?
Add in the fact that the West Indies dropped Shivnarine Chanderpaul and all we could do was search the house for Spider-man. We are clearly – CLEARLY – dreaming.
