Abject Failure 2006-7
Thrash – to give a severe beating to, to flog, to overwhelm.
There are plenty of other words just as unpleasant and just as accurate in describing what happened to the England cricket team in Australia in the winter of 2006-7 but the above will suffice. All credit to Australia, they were absolutely magnificent. As for England, we got what we deserved and it’s quite simply a case of back to the drawing board. These are not good times for mainstream English sport; our cricketers have now plumbed the depths reached by their football and rugby colleagues. Oh dear!
