0Pitch Perfect England kuyakufuneka uvavanyo Sterner

Ke uvavanyo lokuqala lwehlobo lusekupheleni. Wenze kakuhle iNgilane ngoqhayiya kowona mdlalo wamadoda ngokuchasene namakhwenkwe.

Sri Lanka zezi, ukusebenzisa ukuba futhi ubufanasini isandi-kukulunywa, Iqela kwi "inguqu" kunye nenkwenkwe liyibonisile. Kufuneka kukhunjulwe, kunjalo, bagcine i-england eyomeleleyo ye-England ibethela umgca ukuya kwi-tad phantsi kwe 300 uphawu - kunye nesiqingatha sokubaleka sivela kuJonny Bairstow ogqwesileyo. UAlex Hales wenze kakuhle naye enkqonkqozile kwaye kufanele ukuba ukhaba ngokwakhe akazange ayiguqule ibe yitoni. Ukuba ubungekho abo ezimbini ukuze ukuba baleka into kufutshane. Asisoze sazi.

Kuba nje nje ukuba uAnderson noBanzi bafumane imbumbulu ebomvu yesikhumba ezandleni zabo ukubhala bekukho kwiphepha lewebhu. Sri Lanka akazange eme ithuba. Kwaye ngubani onokuqikelela ukuba ezi zinto zimbini zikhawulezayo zokutshintsha zinokuzisa iziphumo ezikhawulezileyo! (Note sar­casm – surely they must have thought about try­ing such ‘black magic’ previously!!)

Kodwa kukho ingongoma banzi apha - indawo XI ihlabathi ange ezama ngaloo lokuqhubekeka, kwezo meko, nxamnye nezo zitya zimbini. Kukho impikiswano eyomeleleyo ethi akuzange kubekho ukubhangqwa okungcono kunoBanzi noAnderson xa izinto zilapho zithanda. Umdlalo awuzukuhlala ngaphezulu kweentsuku ezintathu- kwaye yile nto iyandicaphukisa njengomlandeli weqakamba. Ndiye uphose ngeentsuku ezimbini mdlalo intle kwihlabathi. My TV record­ing box which is set to record the high­lights on series link has instead been infes­ted with day-time TV rubbish.

Ukuba ndicandekile kancinci kuthekani malunga neembotyi zokubala ezise Headingley? iintsuku ezimbini apho, Endaweni yamawaka eeponti zeMnyama emnyama iyatyiwa ngabalandeli abanesidima befihla inyoka ebhiya kumagosa asokolayo, ezihlalo engenanto. (Ngaba kukho umntu obone inyoka yokuqala yehlobo ngendlela? Kwaba ubuhle ngokupheleleyo). Akukho zi-pasties okanye ama-burger anexabiso elingaphezulu ayatyiwa nokuba. Kwaye u-Boycott Bingo yimemori ekude. Kubiza imali eninzi ukufumana umhlaba wokuvavanya umgangatho womdlalo kunye nokuyigcina apho- imali efuna ukubuyiswa. Iintsuku ezintathu azizukunceda ibhalansi yebhanki kakhulu!

Kwaye ayisiyiyo imali-yamadoda nabafazi abashiyekileyo abambalwa abaphuma epokothweni. Nabalandeli bayasokola. Kulungile abo babenamatikiti osuku lwesine kunye nesihlanu bayabuyiselwa imali kodwa uninzi lwabantu luya kuba luthathe usuku lomsebenzi, abanye baya kubhukisha iihotele okanye benze ezinye izibophelelo zemali. Kulungile kwaye kulungile ukuba unayo ikrikethi yosuku ukuba uyibukele - kodwa akukho mntu ufuna ukuhlala eLeeds ngaphandle kokuba unesizathu esivakalayo.

Akunakuba ngumbono olunge ngakumbi ukulungisa isandi esinika wonke umntu intwana? Umkhondo ohloniphekileyo wokubetha apho ubeka khona intloko phantsi kwaye ubonise ubuchule obuhle uya kufumana amanqaku kodwa into enomdla kwisitya nayo? Zithini izihloko kulo mdlalo? Ebanzi kunye noAnderson banokuphalaza igazi kakuhle - akukho sh * t Sherlock. Akukho mntu ufuna iNgilane ukuba ifane ne-Indiya yakudala-ikhaya eliqaqambileyo, eyothusayo-kodwa ukuba amakhwenkwe ayaqhubeka nokuba nomphezulu onje nge-Headingley ke lowo ngumngcipheko esiwubalekayo.

Ndatshitshiswa ukuva malunga nokudlula komhlaziyi omkhulu we-TMS, UWinston Anthony Lloyd "Tony" Cozier. Ukuthambeka kwakhe kweBarbadad kwandigcina ndonwaba amaxesha amaninzi kwaye uya kukhunjulwa kakhulu-inyani yokwenyani nokucima isandi. Cheerio Tony, nibulela ngenxa ngabakhweli.

Wenze kakuhle uChris Woakes ngokuthatha i-9-fer ukuphawula ukubizelwa kwicala laseNgilane. Ndisaqinisekile ukuba angayiqhekeza kwelona nqanaba liphezulu kwaye njengoko kucetyisiwe apha ngasentla nokuba ibhegi egcwele isikhumba ngokuchasene neSri Lanka iyakundidanisa. Ikwaqaqambisa ubuthathaka kumlinganiso we-England ukuba uBen Stokes akafumaneki. Kodwa eyona nto ibalaseleyo yaseBritane kuMnu Woakes -ukusebenza kakuhle kunokuqinisa ityala lakhe.
