No England vs. India cricket thread?


#1

Hero Mo! This is nicely poised huh


Why haven't any of you idiots started a cricket thread?
#2

Might actually win this :cricket:


#3

HOWZAT! :cricket_bat_and_ball:


#4

dhoni’s still magic with the gloves :heart_eyes:


#5

Battered them again today.

Interesting fact: Of the ten England players with the most ODI centuries, 6 are in this current squad. Granted this also indicates how badly we have sucked over the last 40+ years, but still.


#6

It is a cracker tbf


#7

strauss, tres, KP &…?


#8

Collingwood?


#9

could be, i discounted him cause he batted 6. maybe sir nicholas? im gonna cave and have a nosey.


#10

Yeah I’ve had a look, wouldn’t have got them, was thinking too modern, Collingwood only one away from the top 10


#11

aye same.

in the first 30ish years of odi cricket 2 english men reached 5 centuries. haha


#12

we’re alright at the old white ball, eh?


#13

Test after a long dry period against the best players of spin in world cricket with an all rounder and a white ball specialist as our spin attack. Really can’t see anything other than a comfortable England win here


#14

Oh there is no hero Mo?


#15

Unfortunately there are no more heroes any Mo.


#16

Not sure if I’m being an idiot but absolutely no idea why you wouldn’t swap Malan for mo in our lineup. (cue Malan double century)


#17

No idea, but Cricinfo goes into why Rashid over Mo (video to right; basically Rashid is the specialist spinner), and also says that Mo might have played over Malan.

  • astride the series like some sort of bronze god
  • jimmy’s bunny again
  • cowardly fence sitting option

I see the logic of rashid over mo but it’s a risk and having a second spinner would dampen that risk. Plus mo is as good a batsman as malan


#20

7/4 on India to win the series

  • Bafflingly wide. Have a nibble
  • Nobody wins test series away from home anymore
