Alastair Cook Clusters His Excuses
What he said:
“We know you can lose wickets in clusters and we seem to have lost 10 there in a cluster.”
Alastair Cook cannae explain how his team lost their way in a run-chase against Team India in Kolkatta.
England were 129 for no loss chasing India’s 271 for eight only to collapse to 176 all out.
The loss completed a 5-0 rout at the hands of the current World Champions.
What he really meant:
“We got hit by a series of cluster bombs. We term them spinners.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Humpty Dumpty and his men had a great fall.”
