Don't worry, no comment on the test. 😬 Just Greg James posting the Aggers, McGrath and Strauss video from yesterday and an unlikely response.    

Just got home from a day on Headingley's Western Terrace(they can shove the new name up their arses, it will always be the 'Tarrace to me!). I'm pissed, a bit on the sun burnt side and still buzzing a

Suggesting the final shouldn't have been at Lord's is complete and total nonsense. For all its faults, it's one of the most iconic sporting venues in the world and the atmosphere, to me anyway, sounde

Is there anyone in the 1st XI who could? Who's guaranteed their place?  A lot of people on foruna seem to be boosting Buttler as a future test captain but I don't see it. Ben Stokes possibly? Might be a calming influence on him like it was for Nasser Hussain.

I worry about all-rounders as captains, both Botham and Flintoff floundered as them. I reckon it would improve Buttler as a batsman as the responsibility might lead to more with the bat. But Root just didn't stick with a plan at all today against Smith. I know he's a great player but why not just dry up the runs? If they'd have kept the run rate about one run lower then Australia would have had to bat on tomorrow and give England a better chance of surviving. Just attacked way too much but admittedly he wasn't helped by being a bowler down, then he wouldn't have had to bowl Moeen Ali as much against Smith.

It's a lot like his crazy field settings last summer. It's as if he thinks thinking out of the box and catching people by surprise alone takes wickets when thinking out of the box actually needs a bit of clever thinking behind it to work, rather than Vince Russo-esque "They'll never see it coming!". If you're going to give some something a bit surprising with the new ball with a part timer you want a bit of medium pace that swings like Gooch or Mark Butcher or even Ian Bell had. Christ Tresco's Medium Swang (Swung?) for miles. Not finger spin.

The West Indies have called up my new favourite cricketer to the test squad. Rahkeem Cornwall, who is set to become the largest athlete in test cricket history, at 7 foot tall and over 500 pounds.

I have heard a story today of some top shithousery in the Lincolnshire cricket team. 2 of the Lincolnshire players were playing against each other in a club game when one brought the umpires attention to the bowling action of the other. That one was reported to the ECB and is now suspended from bowling until video analysis of his action has been completed. Top class shithousery there.

7ft 500 pounds. Why hasn't Vince been on the blower... Seriously though he can't be over 6'7 comparing him to when he was standing next to other players

 

I have seen him in the CPL and he is decent . If I remember correctly they said he average over 30 in 50 over cricket with the bat as well.
