image for England Cricket Victory Faked By Daily Mirror

With England having sailed to a sensational win over New Zealand by 7 wickets at the sun scorched Oval, The New Zealand Cricket Board have hit back with a startling evidence disputing the result.

Spokesman for New Zealand Cricket, Bruce Guttersnipe came out with claims last night that the match was faked by known forger Piers Morgan and the Daily Mirror.

Having looked over the evidence presented to him by Batsman A, Twelfth Man B and Silly Mid Off C, Mr. Guttersnipe gave the following analysis to a conference of Murdoch-reporters.

"When you basically look at this is has to be fake, I mean this is England for God's sake, we're talking England here."

BBC Sports Editor Andrew Prentice-Smythe agreed with the calls. "My 6 year old could see through these photographs. The Kiwis are sponsored by the wrong team, no real Englishman holds his bat like that and Nasser Hussain is known to lace his boots in an entirely different way."

Speaking from a Job Centre in Swindon, Piers Morgan replied "They just can't take the defeat. New Zealand are losing rugby matches to England and Australia, now the cricket. Until they provide incontrovertible evidence that they are not just crap the Mirror should stick with the story".

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