Good for the nation

The performance of the England cricket team will be good for the nation.

Successful sportsmen inspire the public and the public create the atmosphere in which additional successes (economic, cultural, political) become possible.

The inspiration of sporting success reassures populations of their national greatness.

Furthermore, it appears that the performance of the national teams (football, cricket, rugby) is directly linked to the state of society.  People are "taken out of themselves".  Their cares and worries do not seem so important.
