Not sure about the cricinfo metric to imperial converter

(really like Wood, can’t play two tests in a row, but pick the best 2 or 3 tests in a series for him to play in, and don’t give in to the temptation to play him more than that)


#222

I was going to make an ill-advised post this afternoon about Wood only being picked because he bowls fast, it doesn’t translate into wickets, but I think I might hang on to it for now.


#223

I like Dobell in print, just when he speaks something puts me off.
that’s good though innit


#224

yeah he’s a proper smuggo, funny tho


#225

Fucking hell


#226

It is astonishing how often England Test batsmen try to do something more than leave or block the first ball of a session/after drinks.


#227

Paul injured, dead rubber, comfortable lead. Worryingly set up for Jennings to get a score and secure an ashes spot


#228

If Jennings gets a century on this pitch, in the form he’s in, against these bowlers, located entirely within your kitchen, I will eat my hat.


#229

If he keeps up this striking rate, he’ll be romping to his century around lunchtime tomorrow

In a conversation with a mate about England’s potential team of keepers. We tried to get all of the keepers to have opened in tests. There are 6, all of them since 1950 (only one of them has over 1000 test runs as an opener). You’re welcome to attempt this puzzler


#231

first time I’ve had to listen to talksport, today.

even if it’s theoretically fine i hate it


#232

We got 3 of the 6


#233

buttler
stewart

just for England, this?


#234

Just for England?


#235

Buttler hasn’t opened has he? If so then my list is out of date, there are 7 and you have identified 2 of them


#236

No, globally


#237

he has opened, in that daft chase in the uae, when it was going dark. not sure he was keeping at the time though.


#238

Think yjb wouldve been keeping in that


#239

Brendan McCullum?
