Australia bowled out for 160, England chase down 400 to level the series at 1-1?

No, I know, but all we have left is occasional snippets of optimism.

Hopefully achieved with a session to spare so Root and the boys have the time to take on COVID and defeat it as well for the good of all of humankind.

400 or 500 to chase is a hard hard total. I would imagine if anything it woks be circa 500 for us to chase

England cricket team retains the ashes and saves humankind :)

Matt Prior giving a good analysis of why Buttler drops catches he should take

Olympian2 19-12-2021 07:22 AM

Eleanor Oldroyd on 5Live just now : Australia are, effectively, in the box-seat now.

Outstanding analysis….

Yes very good analysis
Butler is lazy in my opinion or maybe just complacent to move or get behind the ball and this is what he needs to do more, we get told as kids to get behind the ball etc

No sh!t Sherlock

RazorsEdge 19-12-2021 07:50 AM

Malan can bowl

RazorsEdge 19-12-2021 07:52 AM

Hold the front page, Butterfingers took a catch

RazorsEdge 19-12-2021 07:53 AM

468 to win in 130 odd overs

We have to face 40 odd overs today………..pray for England

Aki Aki Aki 19-12-2021 07:55 AM

So it seems Root and Malan are not only our best batters

While he’s not near Foakes standards, he’s improved as a keeper over the last couple of years.

I’m not sure if he’s just burnt out.
Not sure of what’s happening behind the scenes but his wife recently had a child and not sure if they’re out with him or not.

Glad he took a couple of blinders today if nothing else.

Lol, not many know, but Jason Roy is a good bowler too

Malan did turn couple of wrong uns which was very impressive

Yes that burn out is something not taken into account, he is a one day /t20 specialist like Dhoni and maybe ECB need or limit the games or break before test cricket

Burns and Hameed have a chance to make history by having a partnership in double figures……

eaglesheart 19-12-2021 08:13 AM

Pathetic again from Hameed. Cue the collapse.

Chance gone....lasted 2 overs

eaglesheart 19-12-2021 08:14 AM

Could be over today.

gold76 19-12-2021 08:15 AM

Almost a sense of inevitability

Half baked prep, feels like a watershed tour, maybe some of the old guard will step down and Root will have to go as skipper

A team in transition
