Belated Post # 3 – England [sm]ashes
Category - News
I loved every bit of last Sunday’s Brunch & Beats… but my favourite bit was probably this…
In October 2010 Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting described the young English batsman – Alastair Cook – as the team’s ‘weak link’. 766 runs and an Ashes win later and I think it’s safe to say Ponting’s point [like his team’s performance] wasn’t his strongest. Weak link? Yeah, not so much.
Yes, that is an Australian sporting the Union Jack flag as a cape. Yes, he is doing the royal wave. And no, you should never bet against an educated english girl. La la la!
[Slightly worried about the rugby now… but looking forward to watching England talent Jonny Wilkinson and Danny Cipriani nonetheless]
