A golly good thrashing

England was crushed today by South Africa. Everything about the South African game was superior: bowling, fielding, batting, confidence and I suspect mental attitude as well. It is difficult to see where England could have won that game. How to win is easy: score 200 (or maybe 175 on that wicket) and put South Africa under pressure but I don’t think England have the ability to do that. England now have to beat India and West Indies to have a chance of the semi’s - a big ask for a small team.

They could win against West Indies. India is a tough task. But if they don't and India & SA beat West Indies, England is out.

Why in hell's name did they choose to bat first?

I don't know who I dislike more, Smith or Pointing. At least one of the fuckers is out.
