image for England Win At Not Playing Cricket
Opponents Have Been Bowled Over By Ungentlemanly Conduct

In recent tests England have thrashed opponents, in a crucial loss to the gentleman's game.

Not Cricket

England invented cricket in the late-nineteenth century. The game became popular in the colonies. Historically in matches against its colonial subjects the England team would lose.

However in recent years under the Labour Government of Tony Blair the English cricket side has refused to play cricket and won Ashes series and other tests convincingly.

A Major Victory for Cricket

Lovers of the game hark back to the glory days of English cricket under Conservative Prime Minister John Major.

Under the captaincy of Michael Atherton England recorded stunning losses at home and abroad. England were known for the batting collapses.

That was the last time England could truly be called the home of cricket, say cricket historians.

'Something has been lost,' says Chairman of Selectors Geoff Miller. 'But England will play cricket again.'
