What a babe :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:


#22

what’s the real quiz here, sorry? I haven’t been paying much attention lately.

also ROOT WITH LOTS OF OOOOOOOOO


#23

Just got in. Are those new whites we’re wearing? Lovely dash o cream. Very 2005. Like it.

What’s a par score on here then chaps?


#24

Not sure I approve of the brilliant white jumper worn in combination, but the cream is nice.


#25

Not a fan of whites being brilliant white. Should always have a hint of cream to them for my liking.


#26

I’d have said 350, looking at how the pitch has played during the day. I think they’ll need it, too, as the predicted storms don’t look like they’re going to materialise.


#27

Another vote for Davidoff Cream jumpers here. No toothpaste, thanks.


#28

Outside of a fine, do we think that anything will happen to South Africa for the slow over rate?


#29

"Root manouevres that beautifully… "

(TMS)

free advertising, like with Kraftwerk.


#30

I remember in the (I think) 2006-7 ashes (or maybe the home series after that), the aussies had a very cream kit and we had a very very white kit, and ours looked so much worse.


#31

Elgar will get his one warning before suspension as Captain and then never skipper the side again.


#32

Root absolutely seeing it like a beach ball here.


#33

Oh my days, another no ball :joy:


#34

#ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT


#35

and the daddy hundred with the next ball. lovely, lovely stuff.


#36

Heard from some colleagues we’d collapsed to like 70 for 4 or sutin, fucking hell what a knock!

ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTT


#37

Does it count as a collapse when it’s so bloody predictable? Ballance ffs.

The fact that Root, Stokes and Mooeen have proceeded to make 280 sort of highlights our issues in the top 4


#38

#MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEN


#39

Further condemnation of the guys who got out. We were 4 down for 70 and have scored at over 4 an over for the day.


#40

We’ve got 8 elevenths of an absolutely stellar test team.

Cook
X
Y
Root
Bairstow
Stokes
Ali
Woakes
Z
Broad
Anderson

We’ve got fast bowling reserves too, which will be needed soon enough, and I reckon we’ll sort out Y at some point. Opener X and spinner Z are… open to discussion, let’s say.
