Yeah, pretty easy in the end Jim.

It was tight, but you got there.

Declaring after Uzzies second ton, might have given us a few more overs, but balancing it out with trying to give your youngest player a chance to make a debut century is understandable.
Roll on Hobart.

It's a bit embarrassing to celebrate a draw, but that was tense :D . Watching Zac Crawley earlier, he looked really good and it's a shame he didn't go on to score a hundred.

Buttler definitely going home because of his injury

What a shame, I am surprised he managed to catch an injury :)


I shouldn’t jest all the best t butler and hope he gets well soon

RazorsEdge 09-01-2022 09:22 AM

Well at least won’t be 5-0, 4-0 or like Worksop said 3-1….

Roll on Hobart

Undeniably correct...unbeaten since

Wow....... Now thats why we love test cricket. Brilliant match that was fairly absorbing at times. Well done to the English, wonderful effort on a tough pitch and with both internal and external pressure. Bairstow has made a difference to your batting lineup. Tough, gritty but can still score. Very adaptable cricketer.

Not worried that we didn't win. I think that is the sort of match where everyone won. Supporters of both sides should be happy enough with the result tbf. Cliche, but cricket was the winner there.
****en Nathan Lyon though, overpitched nearly every delivery in his last 4 overs.....wanker. The moment got the better of him tbh.

Or 3-0 of course....but not 5-0, which strangely seems like a minor victory

Yup agree and even agree a key Nathan Lyon.

Bairstow has his moments I will say, he took some hit and flak from the crowd but he played well

The English players are looking forward to getting pissed…..going forward, but they need to go through tons of spreadsheet data first :)


I did check the weather too and woke up at 4 to see what is happening and weather people lied to us. Disgusting:)

ebyeeckeagle 09-01-2022 10:27 AM

It was pissing it down at lunch, so I went to sleep for a while. Though that was that.

Finally a bit of application and resistance. Great effort in the end. Can we build on this? Maybe. But we desperately need top-order runs. Let's give it a real go in Hobart.

Oh, and can the Aussies hang on to Silverwood or even deport him with Novax? We do a lot better without his 'input'

He wants to gain asylum here but the government have declined his request quicker than they took Novax's visa.
He's all yours:lux:

Crawley is the long term answer. Hameed is not

greybot 09-01-2022 11:33 AM

Watched till lunchtime there and went to bed dreaming of the draw. Well done England!

Crawley was fantastic!

Genuine question - will Silverwood be allowed into Tasmania? No 'special cases', please,
