One day victory

After a very lacklustre tour, the England cricket team managed to leave Australia with a trophy. Quite an achievement, given that it is only in the last four matches that they have shown good form. Heard one commentator (Gus Fraser, I think) praising Andrew Flintoff, as ‘the one person whose… has been constant throughout the tour.’ What a short memory! I hope the ECB have a better recall of what contributed to the disaster that was The Ashes. (Yes, I know it wasn’t all Flintoff’s fault, but the limitations of his captaincy were clearly a contributing factor.)
