This week saw the “darkest day” in Australia’s cricket history when the Australian batsmen made just 60 runs.
But one respected commentator wasn’t pointing his finger at the players. Former wicket keeper Ian Healy says the crickets are distracted by the presence of their wives and girlfriends.
One Australian WAG has a few things to say about that…
Thursday night sent shock waves through cricket lovers in Australia as we saw our beloved Ashes team all out for 60 in just 18.3 overs. It was the shortest first innings of a Test in history…Eeek!
So who shall we blame? The selectors? The coaches? The ground? Jet-lag? The Australian cricketers themselves? Or should we say that “England was the better side on the day?”
Nope. According a prominent Australian commentator, it was “the WAGs fault.”
As we are living in 2015, I am finding it hard to come to terms with this statement. To be honest, it makes my blood boil so I will try my best to be as calm as possible in addressing this prehistoric and, lets be honest, sexist point of view.
Firstly, it seems quite clear that the people who are putting the blame on the WAGs for this poor cricketing performance, have a very short term memory. These are same partners were there when the cricketers quite comfortably won the second match.
Can you see? Partners supporting.
And see here? The final result. Winners!
