The Empire Strikes Back
Oh dear, Kiwi Cricket Hearts are Broken again.
After celebrating a great test win, people's minds had already turned to a series victory, Unfortunately the English have other ideas, we are only into day two of the the second test and it seems almost certain that England will tie the series. Their batsmen piled on the runs to score 342 in the first innings, and New Zealand in reply have collapsed in dramatic fashion to be 187/9 as Im writing this, no heroes, no saviors, just an allround poor display apart from Taylor. With three days to play, there is no stopping the English now, the Barmy Army are dancing in the street and singing along in their merry old way.
As for us Kiwi cricket supporters, once again we have gotton our hopes up, only to be let down, does anyone know a rain dance?????
