Boom there it is.

Feel a bit flat


#682

It’s a pity when you consider Windows teams of the past. Such a shame all the issues between the board and players that seems to result in them fielding about half a dozen new players each time they play.

Probably because of the PINK ball though tbh.


#683

Anyone getting on this 60th anniversay TMS T20?


#684

just started watching it on the iplayer. bit awkward having boycott and blake together


#685

Classic England so far. After a thumping win in one Test, we churn out this sort of shit (against admittedly good bowling) in the next.


#686

Cripes! Some proper rescue work needed from Stokes and Moeen now.


#687

This is how our innings’ work now though isn’t it? Anything from anyone other than Root in the top 5 is a bonus before Stokes and Moeen drag our nuts out of the fire.


#688

Sometimes Bairstow too.


#689

Bit harsh on the highest scoring Englishman of all time.


#690

Fair point, but he’s scored 11 or less in 5 out of his 10 innings this summer. Bearing in mind he is very much the senior member of that top order.


#691

This is a bit of selective reasoning. To go with his (admittedly very low) low scores he’s gone past 40 in all 5 tests previously this summer, and scored 243 not ten days ago. Also Moeen, for all his brilliance, has scores of 7, 18, 27, 16, 8, 14, 0 and 22 on his resume this summer. You can have numbers 2, 3 and 5 though, we might as well pick specialist fielders at this point.


#692

Aggers floated the idea of getting woakes to open with cook.

Clearly insane but might be inspired.

Unlikely to get many runs (look what happened to moeen) but at least he will contribute afterwards unlike John Q Opener who has his stumps splattered in the third over and that’s him done


#693

I like Devandra Bishoo, his surname sounds like both the sneeze and the response to the sneeze.


#694

Bloody hell, Woakes hooping it round corners.


#695

imagine how many wickets anderson would have taken if he listened to the comms. probably seven thousand.


#696

Hope this is over in 2 days so I don’t feel bad about sacking the Sunday off.


#697

Moeen <3


#698

Ooh the highest ever yest score without a century is 524, stats fans. Might be in danger


#699

Stats fans: BLUEBALLED


#700

Booo
