No sugar-coating it- that was a bad loss. I was hoping that the meat of our bowling attack, Mitchell ‘Steak’, could pull it out of the fire once more but not to be. The old batting frailties in English conditions were exposed again and some more work needs to be done ahead of the Ashes.
Let’s all get behind the Kiwis on Sunday. It will be one of the greatest sporting fairytales if they do get over the line. I admire Kane Williamson as a leader; hopefully nice guys can finish first. England are the firm favourites of course.
