It could be in "honour" of the band rather than the football club.

I’ve already rephrased but in my defence i didn’t post my original comment during play which is when the jinxes apply surely?

‘Malan spoke very well on the stump mic. Hope he kicks on big’

Think the big selection issue we have is that we have no number 8 apart from Woakes, who is a great bowler at home, but not so great away. But we're forced to select him, as otherwise our tail is incredibly long. It's why I think Bess has to come into the equation, lets be honest we don't have a test quality spinner at the moment, Bess, Leach, Rashid, they are all pretty average county championship bowlers, but at least Bess could bat 8 and we could select our best three seamers.

Appreciate the point but I’m not convinced that not having a decent #8 was the reason we only scored 147…

Don’t think we actually need to select a spinner in Australia. Root can bowl 10-15 overs of spin and he’s really not far off Leach/Bess standard. They’re both bang average international spinners and offer nothing. Keep Woakes at 8 and go for 5 seamers (especially if Stokes is only going to give you 10-12 overs).

I do wonder, if he does nothing in this Test, whether they'll be brave enough to drop Stokes. Shift everyone below him up one so Woakes becomes more of an all rounder, drop Leach, and get Broad and Anderson in.

Broad, Anderson, Wood, Robinson and Woakes, with Root to twirl a few. Heavy on bowlers but Woakes can bat and Robinson can hold his own.

Watching on iPhone and it’s fine.

Scoring graphics seem slow to catch up (not that they’ve had a lot to do so far)

Worksop Palace 10-12-2021 11:45 PM

Fvcking rubbish Malan. Awful shot

GB2506 10-12-2021 11:46 PM
