    Its difficult to gauge Aussie results without knowing exactly how many tests they cheated in.

    England will come good, they'll have learned from whatever ridiculous experiment they've just tried of having an English Captain and Coach with only a few ring-ins.

    ^ i was thinking a little more historically, it is a measure of the fans that know their team cheats but are content as long as they get away with it and don't have to face the spectacle of their players blubbing in front of the world when they get caught.

    ^I'd be blubbing if the shower of shite I supported was 1 from 17 at a game they invented

    Anyway, national pride will be reinstalled when #itcomeshome.

    Can you have national pride when your national teams are found to be cheats or does the national psyche ignore such trivia given its ancestry.

    They're so proud they'll probably make the cheating c u n t captain again one day.

    There's a pretty clear division between top 5 and bottom 5. Lucky England have played 10 games more than anyone else, otherwise they'd be languising in the bottom 5!

    Actor and writer Stephen Fry will become the next president of the Marylebone Cricket Club.

    Fry, 64, will take over from former England captain Clare Connor, who nominated him for the role, on 1 October 2022.


    The broadcaster and comedian is a lifelong cricket fan and has been an MCC member since 2011.

    "I am honoured and proud to be nominated as the next president of MCC," said Fry.


    "It is a club that is known throughout the world for what it represents in the game and to be gifted the opportunity to perform this role is truly humbling."


    Based at Lord's, which it owns, the MCC acts as custodian and arbiter of the laws and spirit of cricket.


    Fry delivered the 20th MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture last year, becoming only the second non-cricketing figure after the late archbishop Desmond Tutu to do so since the event started in 2001.


    Connor
    became the MCC's first female president since it was founded in 1787 when she took over in October last year.


    "I am thrilled to be able to announce Stephen as my successor," said Connor.


    "He has a deep love and care for cricket and will be a wonderful ambassador for MCC.


    "The Cowdrey Lecture he delivered last year was inspiring and showed the extent to which he understands the challenges and opportunities that both MCC and cricket face.


    "He will bring a wealth of experience to the role and I hope he thoroughly enjoys his year."
    Warning: Be cautious if you are a fragile pink

    So it's Brendon McCullem who's drawn the short-straw of dragging England while they're kicking and screaming towards competitiveness as Head Coach. He's only ever coached some T20 teams that I know of, but he was a fantastic player with a lot of bottle (like his fellow countryman and new England Captain) so it's definitely a step in the right direction.

    ^ glad you approve, i only hope this new management team don't resort to the, shall we say, novel approaches to winning the Aussies have deployed over the last 2 decades.

    ^And it's not just the Aussie's who've cheated their way to world ranking positions with no skill involved at all, with England in 5th spot there must be a whole heap of scullduggery going on that we simply don't know about!

    The wobblies in the ICC designed the world test system, who do you think is responsible for the algorithm, points and thus ensure that betting outcomes are known to the select few in advance - hint - its not the cheats on the pitch

    ^I knew the fix was in! How could England be so far down the ladder when they've won 1 Test out of their last 17!

    Cheating fucking wagon burners 'aye?

    ^He'll be assistant coach, unlike Brenden McCullum or Eddie Jones who are both head coach's for example

    Was always a Vettori fan, great competitor that always came across as being a good sport and decent bloke.
