Well done, England Cricketers

Well done the England cricketers. For doing what comes naturally to all natural-born English men.

Just standing there, for hours and hours, in the boiling hot sun, doing virtually nothing, in the face of a lot of excitable foreigners.

That's what won the British an empire, and that's what prevented the Saffers winning this match, in spite of scoring thousands of runs.

Sheer, stubborn, bloody-mindedness. It's not pretty, but it gets the job done.
