Always next time

What is the difference between Sir Allan Sugar and English cricket? SurAllun's hunt for an apprentice ended, cricket's hunt for a 1 day trophy goes on. England, after beating the West Indies comprehensively all Summer, went out of the World T20 to... the West Indies. In a rain affected match the Windies Duckworth-Lewis adjusted target seemed gettable from the off and despite a wobble early on as the young guns lost their composure the Windies reached the target with a few balls to spare.

So the Windies go into the semi-finals, England now have to prepare for a test series. The Ashes of course. England showed they haven't quite worked out how to play international T20 which is ironic when you consider who invented the game. Always next time.
