Of course, he's the current England Managing Director, not just an ex player....

Jordan's Jacket 05-01-2022 10:12 AM

Indeed, I do find Ashley Giles very annoying. After having to sit through hours of watching his slow medium pace (mistakenly referred to as spin) for many years it is pretty unedifying hearing him pass judgement on other players. He also has a very irritating voice which makes it doubly worse

Might as well put a deck chair behind the stumps.

And Stokes is off too. Kin ell.

Malan having a trundle now. Can't be any worse than Leach.

I bet he can bowl better than Leach.

RazorsEdge 06-01-2022 07:11 AM

Why don’t Australia declare, we can’t score 350 in 4 innings let alone 2

Khawaja has batted brilliantly and was a delight to watch, shame he plays for the enemy

JJ 06-01-2022 07:24 AM

Anyone else spot the Benteke-style celebration by Khawaja when he got to 100? You know, the hands either side of the knees-up thing.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 06-01-2022 07:34 AM

Uzi is a big Palace fan.

art malice 06-01-2022 08:10 AM

And here’s the Steve Finnbot:

This will prove to be a fascinating 20 minutes. There are nine overs but I don't think we'll see all of them. Pat Cummins was already out on the field warming up before England's players had come off it. It feels a significant time in the game coming up. Should be riveting.

crystaljim 06-01-2022 08:37 AM

Crawley gets a second chance at the promised ton.

Pleased for Ussie. Always thought he got the rough end of the stick a bit with his career. Maybe if Davey retires, he can get another year or two in the side.

Semantics, but he didn't promise a ton.

RazorsEdge 06-01-2022 09:09 AM

We managed to survive today and not loose any wickets and took the test to day 3, playing first innings with 10 wickets in hand and some score on board

Looking very positive going forward, woo hoo

:)

Sounds about right. I just like people to be quoted correctly - it's only fair.

LuieJack 06-01-2022 10:37 AM

With the series gone and now this Test seemingly a lost cause, tomorrow should be the opportunity for Hameed and Crawley to come to the crease to try and regain some batting self respect, and hopefully send a message to the other Batsmen that follow.
Or am i being too optomistic? interesting day ahead.

So, normal service is resumed. The follow-on, should you decide to enforce it, is only 204 runs away. Our innings will self-destruct in 5, 4, 3, 2.......

Olympian2 06-01-2022 01:02 PM

A Broad-side from Stuart.

'You can dissect loads on this trip, but first-innings runs is where you live in Test cricket. We've failed to deliver that. It doesn't matter what bowlers you play if you're getting bowled out for 140. That might be a bit brutal, but that's the truth in Test cricket'

Hard to disagree.

gold76 06-01-2022 01:12 PM

A couple of things..

I know there is the loneliness of the bubbles and rest and rotate, but surely for the summer tests (if we are over the worst of Omicron) then if fit, you play your best XI.

I'm not surprised Broad has got the arse, but I think a final home hurrah for him and Jimmy would be popular and a good send off.

Foakes fro WK this summer too

I'm assuming its too late to change the pro hit and giggle centric calendar for 2022, but a more red ball centered theme for 2023 is pivotal for next year, if we're going to be competitive next Ashes

Well, if the bowlers were good enough to bowl Australia out for 130, we'd be 3-0 up?

*er checks and no, if we could bowl them out for 130, we'd be 2-1 up :D

Jordan's Jacket 06-01-2022 01:44 PM

Truth is our batting has been dismal and our bowling has been pretty average. Alos our fielding has been poor.
All round we've been crap

Eagle's Nest 06-01-2022 01:46 PM

Great batting from our openers. Both 2*, which is a huge improvement.

Wolfnipplechips 06-01-2022 01:48 PM

Ah, ok, cheers Wolfie.

Agreed we need a new specialist keeper, has to be Foakes. Whether Buttler continues playing as only a batter is open for question. I like him, but he's certainly not a good enough keeper, so probably time to move on in a new era.

Bones14 06-01-2022 02:09 PM

I think your bowling has been fairly solid tbf. I think your fielding/catching has been club cricket at best and your batting outside of Joe has been atrocious really. Stuart Broad is correct. If you bat well in the first dig the chances are a worse case scenario of a draw.
Yes you need 20 wickets to win, but you'll never get 20 if there's no pressure on the oppo's batters.

Sydenham Eagle 06-01-2022 02:12 PM

What incentive is there for players to thrive in test cricket over white ball? Root is one of the best players in the world and probably earns a fraction of what Buttler does with massive IPL and other franchise contracts. Someone like Livingstone has a bit of Pietersen type aggression about him as well as looking a pretty decent spinner and could be an option, but if he wants to maximise his earnings he's going to do it in the same way as Buttler.

But do you think his batting may have been hindered due to his keeping ? His batting talent is without question in my opinion, his keeper less so.

Sweet mother of nectar you are spot on again

The fielding has let the bowlers seriously down and as you said the bowling has been good and Stuart Board who I think reads BBS especially Artís comments said today we shouldnít be thinking of going forward but winning tests. I think him like Bonesy was spot on

The only thing hindering Buttler behind the stumps is the fact heís not a very good keeper.

If Foakes doesnít play in the next test series (if fit) I give up.

Well.

England play 3 Tests in the WI, with the last day of the 3rd Test scheduled to be 28th March. The IPL starts 2nd April.

I can absolutely see Buttler prioritising (& being allowed to prioritise) the IPL over the Tests. Or maybe playing the 1st/1st & 2nd Test & then being allowed to **** off to the IPL.

I can see Foakes being given the sympathy Test gig with YJB there as a batsman (if he's not also at IPL).

It's so messy.

Olympian2 06-01-2022 07:52 PM

In fact, I can see Buttler retiring from Test cricket after this series or at the end of the (English) summer & just playing ODI/being a T20 whore for the rest of his career. What can he be getting out of playing Test cricket?

Cricket does not pay as much and If Butler and Foakes prioritise IPL as it is a big pay day, then I won’t hold that against them as I do not think anyone nowadays, who is a sportspersons play the sport for the love of their country or love of the game, they are there to make money and IPL has been good for cricket in the sense it has made some players millionaires.

As fans all we can ask is they make us proud when they don that whites and represent our country

I think both Buttler and Root make over a million a year from their central contracts alone before you factor in endorsements.

Buttler could make a few extra quid doing Teflon ads.

As Wolfie says, most on Central Contracts get pretty well rewarded. OK, not as much as in the IPL, but if someone is serious about playing Test Cricket IMO, they should NOT prioritise the IPL over 5 day cricket (if there is any clash of dates). End of.

I don’t disagree but the precedent (for prioritising IPL over Tests) has already been made, many times over. Bairstow, Buttler, Woakes, Curran & Ali all missed the 1st Test vs NZ last summer due to the 2021 IPL. And let’s not forget that the 5th Test vs India last summer was cancelled simply because the Indian players didn’t want to jeopardise their 2021 IPL (part 2) places…

I know many love the IPL but the above makes my blood boil, TBH.

I would love the ECB to have the balls to say to the players 'Test cricket comes first and if you prefer the riches of the IPL, you're no longer selected for the Test team'.

But they won't.

Prestige.

Representing your country in Test cricket is still seen as the pinnacle in Australia and white ball cricket is a pathway to that.

Under 100. Certainly.

Embarrassing

Totally embarrassing and I did hope we would be showing some grit. Crawley is still backing himself to get a 100…..

Get in..37 reached

Wow amazing the bails weren't removed there as the ball hit the wicket pretty hard

To all you cricketingers complaining about the current test shambles: What’s the problem? So the test side is shit... who gives a googly? Didnt you all get your big bashes and your 20/20s to make the game “more entertaining” ?

Give me baseball anytime over the short forms of cricket they keep trying to market. Just to think the old one day cricket Gillette Cup was 60 overs per innings.

Iím still one of those Brits that has no clue what the rules are in baseball, other than smacking it into the crowd for a Ďhome runí. Although cricket would be more fun if they had those baseball brawls when the batter didnít like a delivery.
