:grimacing:

well yeah, he’s clearly bobbins isn’t he, which is good.


#102

He should just go full Boycott. He’s wonderfully frustrating to bowlers at his attritional best and that anchoring nature is something the rest of the team really lacks.


#103

Garth Elgar is out.

That stat about Moeen is pretty good, worra player.


#104

Another 54 wickets and he’ll be the third highest wicket taker amongst spinners for England.


#105

Just heard Bavuma referred to as Tiny Temba and I’m chuckling quite a lot.


#106

:grinning: that’s very good.


#107

Swan, laker and underwood must all be well above that, no?


#108

Fair bit…


#109

Broad’s figures, 2-10 from 8.2 - decent.


#110

And monty! @The_Excession turning the thread into a house of lies


#111

Hmmm. The list I saw doesn’t include Underwoos, or Monty for some reason. I retract my claim until further investigation.


#112

Yes, Underwoos.


#113

It was a list of off-spinners, it turns out. Whatever, the point is for a supposed part-timer, he’s doing pretty well.

Bye everyone!


#114

Moeen seems to be unfairly maligned in some quarters. He’s a really effective all rounder, doubly so for NOT being a medium pacer. He’s massively taken the pressure of Rashid in others in having to demonstrate their competence as spinners. Yes, he’s a bit flakey with the bat sometimes, but we’d miss him if he was injured…


#115

Was it this list?

Monty is a weird omission, isn’t he, especially given the date is was written?


#116

Underwoos stars and celebrities, what do they know? Do they know things? Let’s find out!


#117

Not that one, that actually has Underwoos at number one. It was some shitty list in the telegraph, should have known not to trust the source.


#118

That’s one of the ugliest shots I’ve ever ever seen


#119

Rabada suspended for the 2nd test.


#120

Ooooh I missed this. What’s he done?
