ENG vs SA Test series - all hail President Root 🦗




That’s a shame. He’s a great talent and could do without being wound up in such a way.


And what about Rabada?


Not sure how I feel about an England opener reverse sweeping a spinner.


not cause of the reverse, but he reminds me quite a lot of shane watson. seems to pie meditate a fair bit.


pie meditate. boooo


Well i guess this is what happens when you have fewer mainline spinners and seamers than the opposition, but it’s a shame that this series is now going to be ridden with Saffa absences. It also shows how difficult Anderson still is to face, even though he lacks the pace of the rest of the strike bowlers in the match.


Oh god Ballance and Cook setting up a declaration at 2 an over …


Hopefully we’ll see some actual shots after lunch.


I apologise unreservedly for jinxing this.


Hopefully we’ll still be batting after lunch


Think England will be very happy to get a lead of 320.


They’d be ecstatic with that!


don’t know whether to be less nervous cause we’ve got some more on the board or more nervous cause the pitch looks playable again.



Two great catches by England; Bairstow and Ali. What a player Bairstow has become for England.


SA falling apart like a clown’s car.


Turns out this morning’s loss of wickets was a tactical manoeuvre and not in fact an embarrassing collapse.


lovely game of skittles on a pleasant Sunday in July.
