The ICC World Cup is well under way here in Aus. and NZ. Highlights for me so far have included the Thriller between Aus and NZ at Eden Park and the nail biting victory of Afghanistan over Scotland last week. A further joy has been the misery of England. Yes England that has made the final 4 times but never won it. England, that enters every tournament with selection controversy and exits in shame. This time, with high hopes they posted 300+ against Sri Lanka in the group match but never looked capable of defending it as the Sri Lankans cruised to a victory. Even Geoffrey Boycott on radio lamented their feeble effort. Interestingly, this is the second time Sri Lanka have heaped misery on England during a World Cup encounter. In 1996, England scored 238 in the quarter final and thought that they might be a chance, but Sri Lanka powered past them with nearly 10 overs to spare! They are Sri Lanka's Bunny.
My cartoon today has been a reworking of the official logo to reflect England's mood.
