What a ball

Olympian2 16-12-2021 12:33 PM

If only we had someone in Australia who could actually catch…https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...1117dcea91.jpg

Agreed.

But catching is a prerequisite for wicket keepers. Butler couldn’t catch Covid at 10 Downing St.

Lol yup that is a fair point

The catch of Harris was described as ‘superman catch’ maybe he needs to come back to earth

He’s Joe Root’s good mate off the field, as simple as that.

It’s why Root shouldn’t be captain. Fantastic batsman, awful captain.

Best keeper we have and a decent bat. It’s ridiculous he hasn’t been given more chances.

RazorsEdge 16-12-2021 12:35 PM

The England back room staff are more in numbers than the crowd I think .

He's now my favorite my a long stretch.:D

Sorry;)

200 for 4 or five and we’re in the game.

Butler has to go. He’s not good enough with the gloves or the bat. Burns can keep…

I’m going King Warnie atm.

Ian Healy by a long way. The most arrogant piece of work i've had the displeasure to listen to. Horrible commentator and a two faced piece of shit.
Cant stand the guy.
Bill Lawry was my all time favorite though. Brilliant com, but a true gentleman to go with it.

GB2506 16-12-2021 12:44 PM

Are we able to call Foakes up or as he didn’t make the squad we can’t add him?

It's always a batters paradise in the first 3 days. Hence the reason you need a good spinner for day 4 or 5. Days 1,2&3 the spinner needs to hold down an end, get through the overs and give the quicks a breather. As well as be economical with an occasional wicket.

Bones14 16-12-2021 12:50 PM

Be a great team if you had Stokes, Woakes and Foakes along with Peter Willey and Graham Dilley (RIP).

You can't change a team part way through a Test. But he can be called up for the next Test surely.

Stockport_Eagle 16-12-2021 01:07 PM

Track & Trace seem to have caught more Australians than England today :wallbash:

*nicked from BBC

Seems I'm wrong. Apparently their series has ended and we didn't retain any of them so he's back home.

Yeah but Australians describing the Adelaide wicket accurately was just a dishonest ruse to make England pick a spinner. :rolleyes:

Haha I know you can’t change a team mid game. Would be nice if we could!

To be fair they don't come anywhere near the Indians for outright bias.
