Well, you know that in England it is not considered good form to 
actually win at anything. [Unless we are sending th e Scots, Welsh and 
Irish to deal with things like wars.] And if one team - not Gentlemen, 
obviously - *must* win then all other sports teams are expected to look 
inept until that fever passes. And as for trying very hard to win... I 
feel faint;  of course Andy Murray is a Scot. 'Nuff said.

(Once upon a time the English Cricket team would never dream of winning. 
And now it has thrown th e Bookies' plans into real disarray.)
