Why’s no one started a thread yet?

Joe Root & Hero Mo looking very good


#2

Because it’s too weird this morning. I had the test on the telly while I read everything about the election this morning, felt wrong having the cricket on.

But anyway, Joe Root is the hero we all deserve.


#3

This is the thread #noelectionchat


#4

Never heard of elections, not on facebook and have no idea who Stacey Solomon is


#5

‘He’s smiling, he’s tossing the ball up’.


#6

Because Yadav smiled the wicket was given.


#7

that was pretty touch and go.

in other news, Shami looks almost done.


#8

Pretty rousing effort after the Bangladesh collapse though.


#9

It helps that the ball isn’t doing all that much. Winning the toss in the subcontinent is so crucial too.


#10

Wish I was watching this instead of being a work. Really good start. Would love Moeen to make a ton!


#11

I’ll only ever hear R Ashwin in a Mancunian accent.


#12

He’s the world’s greatest bowler according to the current ICC Test rankings


#13

Is he the tallest ever spinner at 6ft 2?


#14

I don’t know that R Kelly song, sorry


#15

Also, Danish Kaneria was pretty lanky IIRC


#16

*Our Kelly


#17

A mere 6ft.


#18

Both Kaneria and Kumble are 6’1" apparently, can’t think of anyone else


#19

How could I forget. Sulieman Benn & Chris Gayle are both well over 6’2"


#20

Ooft Benn, of course!
