'Livid' Botham embarrassed by England 'flop show' against India
Ian Botham has slammed the England Cricket team for putting up a 'flop show' in the ongoing ODI series against India.
Botham said that rarely has he been so angry at watching an England cricket team perform, adding that what he witnessed at Edgbaston was a joke, the Mirror reports.
He went on to call the team's performance "embarrassing," keeping in mind the upcoming World Cup.
Criticizing the team, Botham said they'd be lucky if they win an egg cup between now and then playing like this.
He said that it upsets him to see the team make same mistakes time and again.
Botham further said that England lacked the aggression required in the shorter formats of the game.
