England defeat by Netherlands raises serious questions England's shambolic performance against Netherlands at the end of a horrible winter raises serious questions about the state of the team and where they go from here. But before I analyse their latest low, I must pay tribute to the Dutch, who thoroughly deserved their 45-run victory. Peter Borren's team should have beaten South Africa, and they did the basics right against England, held everything together and were comfortably the better side. To defend a below-par total of 133-5 and win by such a resounding margin was a superb effort. England were simply dreadful, and it was galling to hear coach Ashley Giles and captain Stuart Broad putting the display down to complacency. Previous England horror shows Kevin O'Brien March 2011: Kevin O'Brien hits the fastest World Cup century as Ireland chase down 328 to stun England June 2009: Stuart Broad concedes an overthrow off the last ball as hosts England lose by four wickets to Netherlands at Lord's in the W ...

HOW THE UK PAPERS REACTED TO BLACK DAY The British press has slammed England’s batsmen after the tourists’ dramatic collapse at the ‘Gabba on day two of the first Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test. The Sun newspaper dubbed the Brisbane ground the “Gabbatoir”, the headline accusing England of blowing the first Test. Commentators pinned the blame on several individual batsmen. Jonathan Trott’s capitulation to Mitchell Johnson’s short ball drew the ire of Martin Samuel and Nasser Hussein in The Daily Mail, as well as theThe Independent’s Kevin Garside. Jonathan Agnew pointed the finger at the “soft” dismissals of Ian Bell and Matt Prior, who fell on successive balls to Nathan Lyon. Former England captain Mike Atherton, writing in The Times, singled out the tactics of Michael Clarke as the key for Australia, but it was, not surprisingly, Mitchell Johnson who drew the most comment after ripping through the English middle order. Here are some of the "highlights"... Martin Samuel, The Daily Mail: ...
Michael Atherton, Kimberly Morrow, Mike Atherton, Margo Atherton, Robert Probstfield, Mary Vega, John Probstfield, Robert Probstfield, Brenda Probstfield, Jeananne Roche, Ron Conrad and my dear friend, Regina who is not on FB. Thanks to all of you for your past and continued support through this journey called grief. I love you all.
