Fantasy Bob must apologise. He had prepared a fantastic post for this morning - full of bright optimism and insights into how England could recover some of their self respect in the final ODI. He was sure his words would be an inspiration to the team as they prepared for the struggle in Kolkata. He duly pressed the buttons and retired to his slumbers.
Unfortunately some gremlin appeared in the night and the post did not appear on its scheduled time and FB had no remote access today to correct it............or even find it ...........perhaps some cricket loving component deep in the computer reviewed the posting and having greater insight than FB (which is not hard) sought to protect him from the humiliation of suggesting such a thing as an England recovery. As it is the component was dead right and England slumped again from a promising position to a sorry defeat.
FB apologises for the fault - and for depriving his readers of the feeling of superiority they would have derived from knowing that FB was so wrong. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. In the meantime here is some music to pay tribute to England's achievements. It is only a temporary fault.
