With the series gone and now this Test seemingly a lost cause, tomorrow should be the opportunity for Hameed and Crawley to come to the crease to try and regain some batting self respect, and hopefully send a message to the other Batsmen that follow.
Or am i being too optomistic? interesting day ahead.

So, normal service is resumed. The follow-on, should you decide to enforce it, is only 204 runs away. Our innings will self-destruct in 5, 4, 3, 2.......

True, there's too much made up shit as it is.

Lol

He did say he will back himself to score a hundred and I like that confidence and I hope he does

A Broad-side from Stuart.

'You can dissect loads on this trip, but first-innings runs is where you live in Test cricket. We've failed to deliver that. It doesn't matter what bowlers you play if you're getting bowled out for 140. That might be a bit brutal, but that's the truth in Test cricket'

Hard to disagree.

A couple of things..

I know there is the loneliness of the bubbles and rest and rotate, but surely for the summer tests (if we are over the worst of Omicron) then if fit, you play your best XI.

I'm not surprised Broad has got the arse, but I think a final home hurrah for him and Jimmy would be popular and a good send off.

Foakes fro WK this summer too

I'm assuming its too late to change the pro hit and giggle centric calendar for 2022, but a more red ball centered theme for 2023 is pivotal for next year, if we're going to be competitive next Ashes

Well, if the bowlers were good enough to bowl Australia out for 130, we'd be 3-0 up?

*er checks and no, if we could bowl them out for 130, we'd be 2-1 up :D

Jordan's Jacket 06-01-2022 01:44 PM

Truth is our batting has been dismal and our bowling has been pretty average. Alos our fielding has been poor.
All round we've been crap

Eagle's Nest 06-01-2022 01:46 PM

Great batting from our openers. Both 2*, which is a huge improvement.

Wolfnipplechips 06-01-2022 01:48 PM

The sooner jos Buttler ****s off the better.

Dropped Khawaja on 20 odd.

Jim Cannon 06-01-2022 01:50 PM

Nah. Buttler… and then Root.

A club keeper would take a feather off an off spinner to a left hander.

Ah, ok, cheers Wolfie.

Agreed we need a new specialist keeper, has to be Foakes. Whether Buttler continues playing as only a batter is open for question. I like him, but he's certainly not a good enough keeper, so probably time to move on in a new era.

I think your bowling has been fairly solid tbf. I think your fielding/catching has been club cricket at best and your batting outside of Joe has been atrocious really. Stuart Broad is correct. If you bat well in the first dig the chances are a worse case scenario of a draw.
Yes you need 20 wickets to win, but you'll never get 20 if there's no pressure on the oppo's batters.

Sydenham Eagle 06-01-2022 02:12 PM

What incentive is there for players to thrive in test cricket over white ball? Root is one of the best players in the world and probably earns a fraction of what Buttler does with massive IPL and other franchise contracts. Someone like Livingstone has a bit of Pietersen type aggression about him as well as looking a pretty decent spinner and could be an option, but if he wants to maximise his earnings he's going to do it in the same way as Buttler.

He can’t play as a batsman Aki.

The bloke has scored two hundreds in 56 test matches.
