Slavishly copying Pakistan

We did a Cricinfo piece about ways England could slavishly copy Pakistan – because if you’re beaten by a particular side, it stands to reason that EVERYTHING they do is correct.

One thing that we didn’t suggest was that England should try and get their opening bowlers incarcerated. We’re quite proud of the restraint we showed in that regard. But not so proud that we won’t effectively make the joke while boasting about how we didn’t make the joke.

You can read about what England can learn from Pakistan here.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Subjects acceptable for comedy:
    Major disasters
    Katie Price’s children
    Monty Panesar keeping wicket

    Subjects totally unacceptable for comedy:
    Geoff Boycott becoming England coach

    You’ve crossed a line with this one KC. I feel physically sick. You owe an apology to me, to cricket, to right-minded people everywhere, and to Patrice Evra (probably, it seems to be the thing).

    And while I was writing this England lost two wickets in two balls, so you owe them an apology as well.

    1. Yesterday you were talking about Lancastrianess like it was some sort of virtue, now you are abusing Sir Geoff!

      There is more than one uncrossable line.

    2. There is indeed more than one uncrossable line, Smudge, but that line isn’t a line that must never remain without being uncrossed, either from both sides or from the side facing in the opposite direction. And I think we all know which one that is, don’t we?

  2. I’m more pissed off with England today than I have been up to this point. Why can’t they understand we want them to win the tests and couldn’t give a monkey’s about the ODIs? They’ve got it all arse about face. I’d rather they were just uniformly useless and lost everything.

    1. No, it’s okay. We got loads of people contacting us about it via Twitter. One guy described it as ‘bias drivel’.
