66 from 24


#662

Me too. 326-4 off 24 between them so far. That’s about 680 off 50 over pace. Err…


#663

A pedestrian 276 from 24 overs in the Essex kent game


#664

Wankers.


#665

Looking like the true dinger of the night now. 69 needed from 39 balls


#666

16 needed off the final over. Go on ladsladslads


#667

4 from it. So so brave


#668

Should have called a daddy.

Despite England being 470-5, this is a weirdly unsatisfactory watch. All the wrong England players have scored runs in a sense, the commentators relentless moaning about how utterly shit the West Indies are, constant sly undermining of the quality of the pink ball, occasion with all the tension and intrigue of a margherita pizza. Crowd can’t even be bothered to get pissed, although I guess it’s still early-ish in the cricketing day.


#670

Chance that there’ll be five bowlers conceding their tons. How often has that happened?


#671

Nvm

Will the West Indies score more than cook?

  • Yes
  • No

It’s a ball that is PINK. Fucking hell, you’d have thought they’d just introduced a rule saying you could only bat with one hand, or while singing Agadoo or something.


#673

My mate apparently put a tenner on eng innings victory with one bowler to get a 5fer @300-1 couple of days ago

Jammy


#674

hat-trick ball!


#675

I just feel bad tbh


#676

I know england have an unparalleled ability to go from great to dross between games, but 3 tests seems cruel more than anything. Might be worth running out anyone we’re even contemplating for Australia. Crane, Hameed


#677

:toilet:


#678

i hope we’re not thinking of crane tbf but yeah, it’s hard to see anything to gain from this series.

speaking of the aussies - they don’t seem to have these conflicted feelings when their teams grind the opposition into the dust. how can you find joy in this sort of cricket?


#679

gwan stuart, gwan doubleespresso’s jammy mate.

If we were doing this to a half-decent team it would be different, but I’d back most counties to turn over this Windies team pretty easily
