Default David Lloyd thinks whitewash is not possible, happy if England forces one win

Everyone seems to be expecting a 2-0 whitewash for England in Bangladesh, but I believe there are warning signs from the match against the President's XI.

If England get one win they will have done well.

Good old Bumble has a history of being happy with under-performances. In 96-97 when he was England coach, he said 'we killed em' after England and Zimbabwe drew the first Test in Bulawayo.

Different impression from his quote:

"It reminds me of the Zimbabwe tour in 1996, when I was coach. We lost 165 overs in the two-match series - that's two days of play. We just couldn't force a result. In the Bulawayo Test, which I remember well, we got them nine down and the game ended - we only needed possibly one more delivery but a draw it was."

Default Yeah,

thats the game I was talking about!

He got torn apart in the media afterwards for saying 'we killed em.' Everyone was like, what would he say if England actually won a match by an innings inside 3 days? Thats killing an opposition!
