220-2 to that is just awful. On that track. In those conditions.

Smacks of wanting an extra day in the bush.

Roll on next test

Waking up to this news is so disappointing. I thought at the least we would set them 3 figures to chase. Pathetic.

I'm not sure why anyone has any faith in this England team.

Because ATM, they basically have one reliable batsmen (and he's never scored a ton in Oz), 2 fine bowlers but they're veterans and the coach/capt thought it would be clever to save them for the 2nd test, have only 1 pace bowler available, haven't got a decent spinner and they seem to drop lots of catches.

Otherwise, they're good !

All it needs is for Everton & Verstappen to triumph this weekend & I will have had a miserable, albeit wonderfully financially rewarding, few days….

I couldn’t have put it any better.

David Boon never swore as a player :)


100 per cent fine is tad unfair I reckon

Do you think it was tactical? Or a result of Leach getting tonked and bowling more overs from the fast men?

Root says querying the selection is easy with ‘hindsight’. It was met with immediate universal disbelief.

art malice 11-12-2021 08:53 AM

Bet he doesn’t win another toss either

stinky 11-12-2021 08:53 AM

Goodness me I'm hungover

That might be a blessing

Worksop Palace 11-12-2021 09:00 AM

Seriously, and I’ve said this for a while and not just because of this test.

If I was a bowler in this England team, I’d be going f’kin apoplectic at our batsman. I’m running my swingers off and giving us half a chance in just about every test and you lot can’t even be fvcking arsed to play proper cricket shots. Getting caught behind off balls that wouldn’t hit 5th stump.

Hearts like peas with brains to match.

Add in the fact that at least one of them will be dropped for Jimmy and Broady, and the batsmen will probably keep their places for Adelaide, and you'll have a very disillusioned crew.
