Wing Commander flew out to New Zealand early, to get some practice in, before rightfully resuming his place at the top of the order for The England.
He’d signed up to play for Northern Districts, which I’m assuming is a place on the north island where there are those famed animals Districts.
A rest was all he needed, before he re-discovered the awesome form, which saw him become the second fastest player in history to 1000 runs (recently overtaken by King Probot, Mike Hussey).
Alas, it hasn’t happened. Posh lad is still fucking shit. Averaging 20 after 8 innings with a topscore of 39, playing in New Zealand. Even Alex Gidman averages more. Now that’s embarrassing.
How on earth can he be considered for The England’s test squad, when he can’t even batter New Zealand’s district trundlers..
As opening partnerships go, Wing Commander & Trescothick were pretty fucking good. With Cosmo Pinup Cook however, they were shit. They never get us off to a decent start, primarily, because they both have the same technique/temperament (CPCook being a better player)
Cook & Vaughan looked good in Sri Lanka, and for the first time in a fair while, actually gave us two 100run opening partnerships.
Here is my message to Sociopath Geoff Miller.
Clip his wings, and send him home.
Michael Vaughan had this to say about Shit Posh Lad.
“There’s a real chance that Strauss coming back will mean my moving down to number three,” he said ahead of the first Test on 4 March.
“If I open that’s fine but I also love batting at three and I think that’s a good position for a captain to be at.
“Strauss has come back because he has a huge amount of character, great experience and we like that – he has always opened and I like batting at three, so I expect that’s how it’ll be.”
Stupid Captain thunderbird.
