image for England Cricket Team On Verge Of Historic Whitewash
The Australian flag

The England cricket team, fresh from their latest spanking of Australia, are on the cusp of a famous whitewash - the old brick pavilion at Old Trafford.

The pavilion at Lancashire County Cricket Club's headquarters has been looking a little run-down of late, and head groundsman Mick Spittle has said that his team of groundstaff will give it a 'lick of paint' before the fifth, and final, one-day international, which starts on Sunday. Said Spittle:

"The original pavilion, which was built in 1895, was hit by a bomb during the war in 1940, and had to be rebuilt. It's never been decorated since, and it's started to look a bit 'grubby'. We'll be giving her a lick of paint on Saturday."

Mick said he might freshen the sightscreens up with a bit of white as well, if there's enough left.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
