A Familiar Sight For English Cricket Fans

The England cricket team have admitted that they are not very good. In fact England coach Handy Plant said "They have played shit all winter. We got the Australians here in the summer. It is going to be really embarrassing."

The future of English cricket looked so bright. Players like Freddie Flintstone, KP Nuts, Andrew Stressed, Munty Pantsiar and Paul Collywobbles had given so much hope to the game. But the results have just not matched expectations. With Flintstone injured in a wallet lifting incident and Nuts thinking about his financial future there are signs of unrest in the camp.

Andy Stressed recently took on the captaincy and needs to bring the side together. But there is the cloud of Plenty Plenty cricket hanging overhead. Will the players remain loyal or will they throw in their lot with the megabucks in India? Flintstone and Nuts are already involved. So too Paul Collywobbles, like the other two a former international captain.

There is growing concern that the injury to Flintstone will not be a one off. It has been suggested that Amjad Cant will be selected as specialist wallet carrier, although he will need to improve this area of his game.

Geoff Boycott was asked for his opinion. "Too flamboyant with their wallets these lads. You could never say that about me. "

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