Leaving aside the fact that few countries in the world compete in all 3 of these sports when did England win the Cricket World Cup (as opposed to the T20 competition).

That has only been going since 1975, England have been ranked worlds best team many times

Yes as I said earlier England punches well above its weight in so many sports whether it is cricket, football, rugby, cycling, athletics, boxing, martial arts, swimming, weightlifting and many more. Still some sectors of the population make stupid comments about them being no good at sports.


Loving life in Gods Country. Woohoo, look at me.

My knowledge of cricket is close to zero, but I can use Wikipedia! And it tells me England have never won the cricket world cup. Of course, Australia have done, several times over.

Oh I see. Well then England have never been ranked no 1 football team in the world since FIFA started ranking in 1993. So is he talking about World Cups for football (not in living memory for the majority of the population), test match rankings for cricket and world cups for Rugby Union do you think?

 

The last two really are minority sports played at any serious level in a small number of countries really so England have not really punched above its weight in any of the three examples covered in the OP.

 

As you say there are plenty of sports where Britain does. Golf comes to mind and boxing. Don't see anyone saying the UK or England are rubbish at sports in general as that would be a daft thing to say.

As Gby Grey Sky said Englands not won the Cricket One Day World Cup. T20 doesnt count IMO... So no team has won the Football, Cricket and Rugby World Cup

I think it is just how PB writes things down to be honest. I don't usually but I agree with the jist of what he is saying, we do punch well over our weight in so many sports and 2 out of 3 ain't bad lol

The males in my family are all obsessed with sport- young grandson talks about nothing but cricket, footy and soccer. Boring boring boring.
