What a Jokeavic; shame the cricket team did not invoke the wrath of the Australian Govt before the series started!
I think there was a misunderstanding at Australian border control - when Jokovic gave his name the inspector thought he was giving his vaccination status!

It has been reported on the internet the ERB has offered J… ic a role of Batting Coach. Although he only has limited experience of cricket, it did take the Aussies two weeks to get him out.

Extremely disappointing and a pathetic effort

Problem is we will probably win well against a weak WI team in March and all will be forgotten

I wouldn't call them gutless and certainly not to their faces but people say all sorts on a keyboard
You will have missed the WI series if you wait until March. First game is this Saturday. If the WI team is weak, what name goes for us, Gutless?

I hope I wouldn't use any name here that I would not say to their faces - I would be quite happy to say it was a pathetic effort ( and run for cover, or third man!)

And WI went on to win by 9 wickets. The women's team were saved once again by the weather. What a debacle :clap:

England win the latest T20 game by 1 run. They tried their best to throw it away

Defo taking lessons off the men.

Considering they were 43-3 with Perry already out for 18(rare failure)

Then...
Meg Lanning, dropped on 14 makes 93.
Rachel Haynes dropped on 44 makes 86.

Just these two players bag an extra 120+ runs and we wonder why they're 327-7 at stumps!.

In this format with the ruined matches so far Eng need to win this test along with the ODI's that follow to regain the Ashes.
Good luck ladies!

Ripped from the BBC

Rovman Powell clubbed 35 not out from 17 balls at the death and Jason Holder took four wickets from the final four balls to send England to a 17-run defeat in the deciding Twenty20 and give West Indies a 3-2 series win in Barbados.

In each innings England lost out in the crucial final overs

The test matches do begin in March and I expect England will win that series.
