We had a batting coach on a Sunday, who got into analytics around the time Peter Moores was trying to make Laptop Manager a thing.

The extent of his ‘coaching’ was to remark along the lines of “that’s the seventh time you’ve been out lbw this season” as you trudged back to the club house. Funnily enough, he regularly found himself left out of rounds. :D

Anyone still think Burns is anything but a standard county level player?

Horrendous batsman

He's probably in the England dressing room right now.

I turn my back to post on Memory Lane and now look!! The only reason they didn't get 500 was to declare for a late pop at us and it worked at treat. We are truly dreadful at the 5-day game. This has to be Burns' last test. We simply cannot bat 'properly' any more. The ECB with their obsession with Bish Bash Bosh (aka Beer Matches) are killing test cricket for us.

All we can hope for is to not lose by an innings. So very sad.

Pathetic.

Aki Aki Aki 17-12-2021 10:31 AM

Inevitable to give the new bloke an easy first wicket

GrayP41ace 17-12-2021 10:32 AM

Why doesn't Root just open. He faces the new ball every innings anyway.

Norwich_Eagle 17-12-2021 10:33 AM

It is so pathetically obvious.

Would be better off sending in Broad and Anderson to open at this point.

I'll take 30 at this point.

I wouldn't rule out 30 all out tbh!

davech 17-12-2021 10:41 AM

Two down. "Openers" lasted a combined total of 24 balls. Pathetic. And this track is supposedly a 'road'? Useless gits will be back in before they know it. All over by tea tomorrow?

Norwich_Eagle 17-12-2021 10:43 AM

You know that this is no contest when the Australian weather is getting involved in delaying the game.

GrayP41ace 17-12-2021 10:44 AM

Imagine praying for bad weather every England innings, not to salvage a draw, but to just drag a defeat into a 4th day :D

GrayP41ace 17-12-2021 10:52 AM

Most explosive thing in an England innings is a bolt of lightning ffs.

Get the Buttler Booster. You won’t catch COVID. You won’t catch anything.

There are probably club cricketers with better technique.

Thing is, we aren't even picking batsmen doing well in the shorter formats. We just aren't giving batsmen like Burns and Hameed regular time to learn their game. The country game is tacked on within the season and not taken seriously enough.

Have said this time and time again. If you play county championship games in early April/May and then late September/October on green wickets and overcast conditions where Darren Stevens is causing carnage bowing at 70mph, how on earth do you expect to produce test quality batsman?!

desperado 17-12-2021 12:36 PM

Good to see Rory Burns improving

Out first ball in the first innings of the first Test he managed to last three balls this time

Well done Rory, continue this improvement and you could survive the first over in the next Test
