The Aussie secret

Fellow bloggers and cricket nuts Brian Micklethwait and Antoine Clarke may have their own reasons for why Australians are currently vastly better than the English at playing cricket, notwithstanding the fifth and final Test match, which England won by a canter.

I reckon this story could explain why Aussie cricket fans are, well, able to get fully behind their team, and hence cheer their heroes to victory on a depressingly regular basis.

    Umm, do the english even play cricket any more? Last time I was able to watch a counties game it seemed that both teams consisted of the Indo/Paki/SriLankan national teams with maybe a couple from Zimbabwe thrown in for good measure.
