Yep, he looks a fabulous all round cricketer

Yeah, him & Kyle Jamieson both look like they’re going to be very useful cricketers.

That’s an awful shot for Stokes to play when he’s 5no off 15 balls.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 16-01-2022 09:58 AM

**** me Stokes. If you don't hit the ball in the air you cant be caught. o/70 to 4/93. Why play it like a one dayer with two days to play.

CriticalEagle 16-01-2022 09:59 AM

Stokes playing white-ball style when there's more than a day to go :wallbash:

I did say ‘should’

Any decent batting outfit with players who are mentally attuned to chasing pretty standard 4th innings totals, should be making a decent fist of this.

However, we are seemingly neither decent or mentally attuned.

More than two days left - it's only day 3.

And so today's rot begins. 4 top-order wickets for 24 runs. And after such a positive start. This is a test match ffs, not bish-bash-bosh. Bottom line is nothing has changed. We still have just one test-class batsman and therein lies the problem. 'Test' mentality and ability simply isn't there and it will take years to address.

Just when we think there might be a glimmer of hope, we pull the rug out from under our own feet (if I may mix my metaphors like that :D). It's just so disappointing, but not unexpected. 271 may have been a very tough ask, but we could have made a better fist of it. Sadly, the Ashes will probably not be coming home in my lifetime. Winning a test would be nice, though.

Nor is such a 4th total ‘standard’ if we are to believe the historical stats.

Billings and Pope to get 50 each

Nuts 16-01-2022 10:22 AM

**** Joe was stiff there

Levski 16-01-2022 10:22 AM

Root's body language awful there. Just accepting defeat. Poor

Golf Boy 16-01-2022 10:24 AM

Not sure what Root could have done there

RazorsEdge 16-01-2022 10:25 AM

When do the one day game starts?

Can you please tell us what you think Joe should have done in that instance when he got a grubber

Levski 16-01-2022 10:27 AM

Was a great ball, and nothing he could do, but the look on his face just said 'ok, we as a team just give up'
