‘Do it for Queen and country’: English cricketers' cringey good luck message to Lions

Not for us, thanks.

MAYBE IT’S lack of sleep after staying up half the night to watch the basketball but we didn’t really get the England cricket team’s good luck message to the Lions.

Maybe it was the fact that captain Alastair Cook signed off with the rather parochial “For all you English guys in there, do it for Queen and country.”

Maybe it was the fact that the best Eoin Morgan — a Dubliner — could manage was the stereotypical “Best of luck to all the Irish boys out there. Play hard on the field because you know you’re going to party hard off it.”

Maybe it was Graeme Swann’s insistence on doing silly impressions.

Or maybe we’re just tired. Who knows?
