I don't mind that they lost, because anything can happen in this format, but the way they played clearly showed that they didn't take this game seriously or made any serious effort to go for a win.
It was a trash game, to put it simply.
To me it was just another "can you hit a six" practice match (wasn't even as important as the Ireland match). The tour goals were achieved already. I am not defending the players attitude. Just saying you guys are putting too much emphasis on some thing that is not worth.
This was the best tour ever in our history counting the loss.
