England losing at cricket is rather reassuring, like a musty old attic
smell from childhood, or the vague tang of stale urine from granny's
bed.  It's a very important release valve for the national ego.  Once
the team starts winning, the nation gets stroppy and bad-mannered.
Not very appealing really.

Runcorn Highfield rugby league team never got so much attention, or
higher gates, when they were in the middle of their record-breaking
54-game losing streak.  No sooner had the streak ended (in a glorious
draw) than the people of Runcorn took up arms and invaded Wales.
Really.  It's much safer just to let us lose.

HTH.
