So, the 2011 cricket World Cup is underway, and already Australia and India have thrashed their oppositions, and are looking set fair to do very well. Competition minnows, Kenya and Canada, were sadly thrashed, and look out of their depth. But, true to form, the English cricket team managed to screw up their game against The Netherlands—a somewhat bigger minnow—to the point that they almost lost it. England has never won the World Cup, and judging by this performance, it’s unlikely to do it this time around.
