Ben on...the biggest losing margin, the thinnest of silver linings

Quite a lot has been made about this test being our heaviest defeat. (Have you voted in the poll?) While 358 runs might be the biggest losing margin we've ever suffered, surely our loss to Pakistan in 2002 by an innings and 324 runs was a worse defeat – in that game Inzamam-ul-Haq alone scored more than we managed.

We ranked the loss 4th in the all-time list of worst ever defeats.

But for real depths you can’t go past the 1958 tour to England.
