Overly dramatic headline of the week

The BBC go with “Strauss makes Ashes rallying call”.

England’s captain is geeing up the troops with fist-pumping lines such as:

“You have to earn the right to be on top in a match and that is why what we did at Headingley was a bit of shocker. We have learnt our lessons. It’s vital we make sure we do the basics right.”

Struggling to restrain his adrenaline-fuelled team, he continued with:

“We can take a lot of confidence from the fact that we are at 1-1. There is no reason for us to be negative.”

It’s just like that scene from Braveheart.

  1. “They may take our wickets, but they’ll never take… OUR CONFIDENCE!”

  2. And even if they do take our wickets, they’ll certainly never take our momentum

  3. I don’t recall Brearley making fist-pumping rallying calls either.

    I don’t recall fist-pumping-style captains of the Botham & Flintoff variety winning much test match either.

    It was more a dig at BBC sub-editors to be honest, Ged.
