It’s quite unsettling. Can’t decide if it’s really good or annoyingly intrusive, dare I say I just need to get used to it.

  • We’re shit

Can the answer be all three simultaneously?

Worried for Mo’s (literal) head in this innings.


#164

Yeah obviously it’ll be a bit of all 3, but today doesn’t feel like the standard England shambles collapse


#165

Not yet. Moeen’s in…


#166

… And moeen’s out


#167

that lofted drive over point though, worth another 70 or 80 runs.


#168

Not even checked our team, is broad playing?


#169

Yup and in next! Stand back and watch the runs flow!


#170

Love the way there are people emailing the guardian OBO to have a pop at Buttler. I mean, obviously its the counter attacking no. 5’s fault that we were 93 for 6.


#171

The bravery of tailenders to face fast bowling on a tricky deck is underrated. I typed that out and then Jimmy immediately tried to play one from so far to leg he could barely reach the stumps with the bat.


#172

Textbook.


#173

Oh! So that bang I heard was Boycott’s head exploding. Makes sense now


#174

U16 village cricket was almost above this kind of thing.


#175

Don’t want to sound all old money, but talksport is just dreadful isn’t it. All shouty and bombast, they’ve got it so, so wrong.


#176

From what I’ve heard on the drive home, it’s largely been ok, even if it doesn’t feel right.

But Darren Gough was on last night. That definitely wasn’t good.


#177

The commentary is generally OK, after all half of them are the Sky lot. But it’s everything else surrounding it that is as grating as you’d expect from a station that relies on providing its slope-browed audience with steaming hot takes, piped straight from the arse. The contrast with TMS is pronounced.

At least they haven’t got up-to-the-minute odds being read out on who will be out next. Yet.


#178

58 behind with 6 wickets. Reckon we can make them bat again?


#179

stokes playing a shot with his bat a full 90° in the wrong direction lol


#180

Christ.
