English cricket, how bad can it get

Poor England. They just cant play cricket anymore. After getting their arses handed to them in the recent Ashes whitewash now they are loosing in the CB Series to New Zealand. But to rub salt in the wound *Englands* best player today was Ed Joyce who scored 47 runs.

Joyce is Irish, having been born in Ireland, went to school in Wicklow, went to university in Trinity College Dublin and played for the cricket for the Irish team. He declared for England in 2005 having qualified based on residency.

Watching highlights of todays cricket from Adelaide on BBC makes me miss Australia. The weather there looks wonderful, even better than when I was there and certainly a lot better than it is here in Ireland at the moment. Roll on the summer, brrr.
