England’s cricketers are so good, it wasn’t even a surprise that they won the World Cup. They’re the best team in the world.
They won 17 matches on the bounce before losing to Australia having already qualified for the final. They won the final (as World Cup winners are wont to do) but no-one was surprised. Journalists had been writing about them as if they were champions all week.
That’s how good this England team is. People expect success AND SUCCESS IS DELIVERED.
We move that England’s cricket team be renamed ‘Awesome’. Not ‘The Awesome Cricket Team’ or ‘England, Wales and Awesome’. Just ‘Awesome’.
New Zealand were the beaten finalists, but frankly, they didn’t stand a chance against Awesome.
