Just when you think Anderson can’t possibly come back after a wee injury BOOM wickets down.
shame about the groundsman stating it will turn from lunch on day 2.
Pfft groundsmen, what do they know
which reminds me; surely in the age of technology and money, there must be a way to synthesise tracks of different styles for training purposes.
You’re a madman, how could they possibly do this?
equal amounts of technology and money
Sounds like you’ve really thought this through.
Had enough of experts
absolutely. I’ve a feeling there’s a way to pack individual strands polymers of controllable hardness, compactness and movement (to allow crack to appear) to be formed into a pitch. I just need a team to design, develop, model, build, test, and use it, and we’ll start to see slight improvements in batting.
A wise decision
This is looking bad.
In other news, a dog on the pitch resulted in an early tea, and apparently it left a shit at deep point that still hasn’t been cleared up.
Chris Woakes is a fantastic fielder.
does that count as five bonus runs if hit?
Gaffers doing us no favours here.
I can think of no other reasonable outcome.
Waiting for someone to slip on it, chasing a high catch
funny what a swinging ball does
Doesn’t even need to swing that much. Anderson is always so watchable.
This is setting up to be quite a good game. Can someone who’s good with stats tell me if England at 12/1 is as generous as it looks before I waste a fiver
