Having had a couple of turd matches, Australia find themselves knocked out of the World Twenty20. Before playing Sri Lanka, Ricky Ponting joked about how they weren’t considering failure because the alternative, a fortnight in Leicester, was too horrific to contemplate.
Quite apart from the fact that Sri Lanka are a good team and that joke showed a certain level of confidence that Australia DEFINITELY WOULDN’T LOSE, how will the guys now entertain themselves for the next two weeks after they actually did lose that match?
- By taking time to learn about all of the great inventions that have come out of Leicester, such as DNA fingerprinting, extreme ironing and, er, roundabouts according to some people – although we doubt that one.
- By going out and meeting all the great people from Leicester, such as David Icke, John Deacon from Queen, the one who played Ruth in Hollyoaks about ten years ago and, of course, Mr Motivator.
- By coming up with even more jokes about Britain’s great and beautiful urban conurbations. Next week: Hull.
