Ashes: Why England batted on winning the toss.

by Naked Cricket

Nothing to do with their team composition or Australia not playing a spinner, the Oval pitch, the English weather, Bopara's exclusion or Trott's debut. On closer examination, the reason is clear as daylight - England batted, so they won't have to face the embarrassment of losing Flintoff on the first day. Flintoff of course, can still lose it on the first day.

England is shit! Full-stop. The only reason why most websites rant about English cricket is because the English media is like a wild beast!
