Botham tells England 'flops' to 'sort their own messes' in final two Ashes Tests

London, Dec 19 : England cricket legend Ian Botham has said that England's flop players must sort their own mess in the final two Ashes Tests if they want to put up any sort of fight against Australia.

According to the Mirror, Botham said that when each of the England players woke up the day after giving up the Ashes he hoped it was with a heavy heart.

The feeling of euphoria when you win against Australia is hard to describe, likewise the feeling of dejection when you lose, Botham added.

It is all wrapped up in the special traditions of the Ashes and that is why he knows the England players have to be in torment right now, Botham further said.

The former cricketer also said that a lot of English fans are expecting to see a good show and anything else would be cheating the public, as they have been cheated enough for one tour.
