England trots out excuses

Some things never change particularly with the English cricket team. They start a new series with hope and conclude it in disarray.

However, they never fail to trot out jaded excuses. Along with their inconsistent performances they bring up the Ashes series and any other distractions they can think off. The only new one they have added to their lament is the IPL.

Possibly they were guilty at the start of the series of having half an eye on the Ashes, and other distractions, rather than their opponents here
