We haven’t collapsed yet.
Who’s Liam Dawson? (@The_Excession)
Nothing? Moeen’s hero-ing
Also can one of the stats nerds find out the most sixes scored in a test innings before hitting a four, Bairstow’s 37 with 3 6s, 0 4s must be pretty unique
This is England’s game to not draw. They showed the average scores for all four innings over the last five tests here and they’re all well over 300. I can only imagine the idea of Liam Dawson’s left arm tweekers will keep the Indian top order wide awake tonight.
I didn’t know he was even in the team, actually. was he brought in from the Lions?
Yeah, brought in from the Lions.

L Dawson - fine, unspectacular
Comprehensive, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Really can’t see past England now
You’d have to have very good eyesight from Sheffield!!!11!! LOL ROFL and so on.
Could really do with our set batsmen not middling them straight to the nearest fielder. There’ll be a collapse along soon enough without that sort of thing.
An England collapse? I highly doubt it (any word on my Bairstow three sixes, no fours musing)
Guptill the only one ahead of him who actually hit any sixes, he hit three too.
He’s got to be disappointed falling just short of such a landmark
Would you like me to drop some knowledge on you?
the actual highest innings without a boundary was, unsurprisingly, Geoffrey Boycott’s 77 against Australia http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/63221.html which doesn’t show up on your list because they ran a 4 without the ball making the rope
seen how root has scored 485 runs in this series and everyone’s disappointed in him? that’s a hard shake imo.
Guess the problem for Root is that he’s so good that he’s now on that other level where he’s only going to be compared to the best batsman on the other team in any series, and Kohli’s scored 240 at an average of 128.
I see Stokes and Buttler finally got a platform to work on and failed.
Ashwin’s the first person since Botham in '85 to make 250 runs and take 25 wickets in the same series.
