English cricketers don’t need spot-fixing scandals to embarrass themselves

January 20, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

English cricket coach Andy Flower has admitted his players do not need to be embroiled in betting rackets to wind everyone up.

The side slumped to a ten-wicket defeat to Pakistan in the first Test as their efforts to prove themselves as the best team in the world started in the worst possible fashion.

Kevin Pietersen reacted, “Just by walking onto the pitch with my jewel-encrusted bat, I effortlessly become a parody of myself.”

On the spot

Captain Andrew Strauss said, “I’ve been here plenty of times already. Leading the England national team is never boring as you’re never far away from the next witch-hunt.

“Although it must get pretty boring for everyone else.”

However, a calm Flower reasoned, “Come on, we’re playing Pakistan, it’s only a matter of time before they mess everything up.”
