“We made some appalling selections in India and our team did not look like they could win an egg cup let alone the World Cup.”
Geoffrey Boycott making it clear that England needs to take a hard, bold look at their approach in the shorter format of the game.

“The English team at the World Cup were pathetically inconsistent. I threw in that egg cup bit to bolster my point.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I’ll coach this team into winning at croquet and lacrosse.As a bonus, I’ll teach them to putt into an egg cup from six yards.”
