Definition of the day: Horlicks


“A calamitous catastrophe of an innings, which alternately teeters between comedy and disaster. How England usually bat when facing any form of spin.”

Seems pretty appropriate today after England’s shocking first innings against Afghanistan in the World T20. From 85-7 we somehow shambled along to 142, thanks in large part to Moeen Ali and David Willey. First big scalp for the Afghanis is there for the taking.
