β€œjust bad batting, your honour”

Snater just bowled beautifully for his 8-28 in the match

Cook got 40, it was decent batting conditions if you just applied yourself

Lots of people on twitter deciding the pitch was fine because they’ve seen a video of the last wicket to fall (a number ten batter playing all around a straight one)

David lloyd scored 313no for Glamorgan, wonder if anyone has ever outscored an entire completed four innings in another match… in the same round of fixtures… which didn’t even happen here so whatever.

Snater:

I thought the pitch was alright, obviously it was doing a bit but nothing out of the ordinary

obviously

Cricket equivalent of saying played for and got as the black goes in off 3 cushions, on the opposite corner from where you were aiming.

Exactly the same vibe as the post match interview with a footballer who’s mishit a cross into the top corner.

Brook getting the ball stuck in his grille haha. Never seen that before. Be great if he just kept running with the bowler chasing him

I like how the commentators were saying β€œI hope he’s ok” and then hits it straight for four!

Wood bowling at 97 mph, blimey!

Balls always did move slightly quicker in Pakistan.

No Issy Wong at Lord’s today :pensive:

Kate Cross took a wicket as i was posting that so I’m claiming it.

Emotional guard of honour? :ballot_box_with_check:
Bowled first ball? :ballot_box_with_check:

This run chase could be going better

I switched it on/hooky-streamed it for about 5 minutes, and there were 3 wickets, so I turned it off as I was clearly bad luck.

Apparently I’m still bad luck for them even now I’ve stopped watching

Well at least we know who to blame.
