England vs Australia Live: ‘Disastrous title defence’, Michael Atherton criticizes Buttler and Co.
England vs Australia Live: Former captain Michael Atherton tore into English side for what he called a “disastrous defence of the title,”. Speaking at a ICC podcast, Atherton said, “I think most people could accept a team that played pretty decent cricket and just came up short. That happens in sport. There is no divine right to win every game, no divine right to win these competitions, and England have been very good for a long time. But it’s the way England have just been hammered. If you look at the defeats, five of them have been by unbelievable margins. I don’t think anybody saw that coming, and it is very difficult to understand,”
