How about this for an opening sentence, following England’s third defeat in a row to India in their current one-day five-match series?

Thank you George Dobell on espncricinfo. Never let it be said that writing about cricket lacks color or violence. I’ll have more to say about the woeful England one-day international (ODI) set up when they lose (as they almost inevitably will) the final game. Until then, readers, reflect on the awfulness of England and the barbarism of the sealer.
