A cricket fan in mourning

Before I go to bed, I am sure many of you along with me have been angry today. England contrived to lose this test match; driving at wide balls that should have been left. Paul Collingwood, Kevin Peiterson and Matthew Hoggard put England in a great position to draw, and the rest of the team should hang their heads in shame. Today was the fifth day of a test match; not a one-day international. All that was required was to bat the overs out. It isn’t pleasant to watch, but so what? Australia just one-up in the series would have been better than two-up. I cannot see England recovering from this position. If you squander chances against Australia this is what you can expect.
