I thought the white balls have to be painted rather than dyed, and if T20s and ODIs are anything to go by, they stop swinging after a few overs.

All over.

Quite. But hardly a surprise.

I don’t think his game particularly suits Australia because he keeps his hands quite low.

We’ve not been good enough, but most teams would have had 3 or 4 warm up games prior.

It’s not just like other sports. There’s so much all of the players have to go through to understand conditions abroad.

Strangely, losing Burns really doesn’t alter our chances of winning …..

Aussie folks - why are there so few spectators there?

Ouch!

Who'd a thought of all the England bowlers, it would be Root with worst No ball problem! :D

bradpitt 19-12-2021 12:31 PM

Root out

Lost cause for sure especially now with Root gone, lets hope we can bat for pride and prepare mentally for the next battle. But the problem still exists as what we do with the opening pair as surely we have to accept Hameed needs to sent out to graze, not ideal but maybe Bairstow to open with Burns? as his experience will be needed at the scary Melbourne arena with 100k.

Tomo 19-12-2021 12:32 PM

Ffs. Not a good way to end. First one that had gone away from him.

Why does he? Whoever comes in is a sitting duck right now

Option 1 was simpler. It’s all very Carry On Cricketing.

Game taken into the 5th day. The ECB Support Director of Analytics and Performance Monitoring will be typing that into the "plus" column as we speak.

I thought they dyed it, this is pure guess from me and I could be wrong

It was just a little bit of humour Tomo, keep your panties on mate :D

Talking of brain dead, Root was pretty much brain dead right there. Absolutely no need to play that shot.

Don’t forget old Workie has a self proclaimed “wonderful sense of humour.”

davech 19-12-2021 12:48 PM

Just 386 to win now. The required run-rate is creeping up a bit, though.

50/50 now whether we can do this I reckon.

Imagine in your case his worst crime is being brown?
