The future is orange

I don’t suppose anyone actually thought Netherlands would actually beat England. This was supposed to be a walk in the park for England. A gentle opener against a mostly amateur side. Someone forgot to tell the Netherlands. England won the first ten overs, Holland the remaining thirty. The Netherlands were far superior in their running between the wickets – running virtually every ball. I don’t think England even know how to do that. In the end it all came down to the three usual suspects for England:
  • No batsmen to blast it when it counts
  • No bowlers that can stop runs being scored or take wickets
  • The opposition are more skilful.
England have to beat Pakistan – so they better hope the forecast rain doesn’t wipe out their match on Sunday...
