Swanny’s World of Sport - I was right about ladies cricket

Have your say

I still puff my chest out with pride when recalling the record number of hits the PT website received the day I described ladies sport as ‘dull’.

Ladies cricket was my main target and it looks like I was right. Certainly other, higher-profile columnists are now copying my lead.

Extra exposure has confirmed that England Ladies, captained by Charlotte Edwards, are awful to watch. Turning professional hasn’t improved their appalling skill sets.

In the one-off Ashes Test, England’s batsmen registered a staggering 436 dot balls from just over 500 deliveries faced.

With performances like that the current England squad are going to ruin it for those who follow.

No-one will watch and the funding will dry up.
