English cricket momentum – no-one knows where they’re heading

Momentum's always good

England’s win over South Africa is proof of the EXTRAORDINARY MOMENTUM that they have gained by losing a game, having one rained off and then winning two.

England are pretty much unstoppable now. That’s not to say that they’ll be tearing along down the right path, necessarily. Momentum’s great, but England are more than capable of taking that impetus off the edge of a cliff or down a blind alley.

Wherever they end up, it’ll be a nice change from how they finish most tournaments: gently coming to a standstill in the middle of nowhere.

5 Appeals

  1. I’m still looking forward to when angular velocity and hysteresis making it into cricketing jargon.

    The Pakistanis, I’m told, are all clued up on retardation:

  2. You’re going to have to explain, KC. What is that thing half hidden in the snow? Is it a shopping trolley? Whatever it is, why has someone left it on a race piste? Has the skier just tripped over it and is flying backwards, or is he flying uphill towards it (and a couple of broken legs)?

  3. England are capable of letting their star batsman fly home for a quick holiday and then being without him for a key semi-final when his plane back is grounded by ash from an Icelandic volcano

  4. I’m not going to deny it, I lol’d at that. brilliant.

  5. We’ve given up on the softly, softly approach and announced to the World that England are going to win the whole damn thing…
