LONDON:- One-time England great Geoffrey Boycott accused the current team of batting like “one-day clowns” after their 5-0 Ashes thrashing in Australia. “They were totally humiliated by an Australian team that is good, but not great,” Boycott said. “The last whitewash was achieved by a team containing Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Adam Gilchrist. They had three once-in-a-lifetime players and there was no shame in losing 5-0 to them. But we should be ashamed and embarrassed to lose so abjectly to this lot.”–AFP
