What do you call an Aussie at T20?


"What do you call an Aussie at the Twenty20? A spectator," said the Daily Mirror, while its headline read: "Edna Average", in reference to Australian comedian Barry Humphries's stage persona Dame Edna Everage.
The Sun wrote: "Even Ireland make the Super 8s but Ricky's boys crash out as wallybies". Australian paper The Age chipped in with stern words after Monday's second defeat at Trent Bridge: "This was not what the Australian brains trust had in mind when they plotted to add some Twenty20 silverware to the cabinet that holds the last three 50-over World Cups.
"The result has forced a major review of the squad's travel plans. Penance will be served with a six-day camp in Leicester, where members of the Test squad will bunker down until they switch to Ashes mode later in the month."
The five-Test Ashes series begins in Cardiff on July 8. The tourist board in the Midlands city of Leicester published a list of attractions to keep the Australians amused, ranging from the local zoo to a music festival with Billy Bragg.
The last time Australia were in Leicester, 2005 batsman Michael Clarke had his kit bag stolen.
