It's curtains already. This England team cannot chase down a 200 run deficit.

It's all over as a contest already. 90 more runs and we are in innings defeat territory.

We shall return.

I suspect we may already be in innings defeat territory the way it has gone so far

If that's the case gentlemen then perhaps we pack the suitcases now and move on to Adelaide.
C'mon, you mighten win but you can still get some positives from somewhere.
Robinson looks like he has a really bright future, and Hameed seems to have a bit about him.

It's all very much like Wimbledon pre-Murray - we seem to have this strange belief in a positive outcome.

I do think we have lost the last 9 or 10 matches and I canít see stopping that run anytime soon

I do hope Burns and Hammed bat well in the second innings.

Adelaide is a chance for you guys. Gabba is incredibly tough for a touring team first up. It's nearly always a guaranteed win for us.

He's only got to face one more ball and it's an improvement:D:D

Sorry:p

There is always one of us that has Ďa bit about himí for the last 30 years.

Gumboots for the weather. No point him bringing his spikes as they didn't help him when he was playing...........useless.

We won in 1983 and 1986 iirc. Even worse from the 1990 then.

Yep, agreed.

Robinson is different though. He has a swagger and a degree of self confidence that makes me think he's in it for the long haul. Hameed similar, albeit maybe not the swagger but has the belief. I like both tbh. Couple of good players on the up.

I wonder if he will face the first ball. Tendulkar always avoided facing the first ball

I am more worried about Stokes, I don’t think the geezer is match fit. But I do agree the above two you mentioned have showed grit

Bones14 09-12-2021 09:18 PM

Stokes looked so cooked late in the third session. The guy is an injury waiting to happen. He’s far from match fit. Admittedly it was hot and humid yesterday but a pro cricketer shouldn’t start like a 25 year old and finish like an 80 year old.

Might be a bit harsh but he ain’t in good nick.

He is not and I am worried we will see what happened to Flintoff all over again with Stokes.
