That’s 12 times this year that England have failed to make 200.

Thank **** we’ve eradicated those basic mistakes else we’d be in big trouble.

I wonder if the T20 team would play better, at least they will score more than 200

Trott is in the studio and I remembered the chap used to put bat on ball take a single and scoreboard was ticking, simple approach very effective.

Imagine my complete shock at waking up to discover have been skittled for less than 200. I am absolutely gobsmacked.

And just to rub salt into wounds, I have to listen to David Gower waffle on about sod all. I thought he had been well and truly put out to grass.

Selfish bastard. It was your duty to turn up and meet as many Aussie players as you could.

Hope you feel better soon.

Are you Harmison?

He’s just stated that if England could manage to get Lyon and Lagershandy out in the space of 5 balls, it would be, and I quote, ‘a great day for England’.

I don’t know what was more ridiculous, thinking we could get two wickets in an over or that even if we did it would be a great day for England.

When I heard him say that I thought 'random' drug test when he comes off air would be a good idea.

Well I think Gower is an excellent commentator - very knowledgeable. But then again we all know how opinionated you are. You've banged on about how dreadful Burns is, but Hamed has done well in his last 3 innings- 6 runs.

Good Lord, fancy having an opinion about a cricket commentator and a player on the cricket thread of a football fans forum. Whatever next eh.

Seems the selectors had the same opinion about Burns. Maybe we’re all wrong and he’s actually a fantastic opening batsman, we just can’t see it.

Oh and nothing to do with him being Surrey captain or owt eh? :D

There some real armchair experts on here. I said Hameed should be dropped and was accused of racism for suggesting it. This has to be his and a couple of others last test match.

Absolutely pathetic. I turned off after Crawley was out.

I see after Buttler’s ‘heroics’ in the last test normal service resumed for him.

Just seen the dismissal as well. Ball before tea and he is caught in the deep on 3. What a waste of space but he’s one of Joe boys best mates.

??? Yep, I'm a Surrey follower but that has nothing to do with my view. Burns did seem to find a bit of form in his last knock and is dropped.

IMO there was a good argument, for giving him one more opportunity.
