Cook is bloody amazing isn’t he, despite the daft runout. Overtaking where Sachin Tendulkar was at his age is pretty special.
I have mixed feelings about England potentially winning this game/the series. The grounds are half empty anyway and I just think it might switch the Indian public off test cricket even further.
Next Ashes is shaping up to be a good contest.Posted 5 years agoJunkyardMember
considering they were at 338-1 its a bit of collapse as always
At least their is captain marvel to have set a massive total prior to the collapse.
England always seem to have one good performance from a batsman rather than a team performance and surely that is a bit of a worry

As a model of humility and modesty, its hard to beat our Geoffrey:

On the basis that Dhoni asked for raging bunsens for the second and third tests, only to get his arse handed back to him by Swann and Monty, the lord alone knows what he asked for for the fourth test! But i sure as hell hope that wasn’t what he’d wanted, and that we don’t see many surfaces like that again. I can’t remember a more turgid test match.
I know we’ve been spoilt in recent years by great games and run rates in excess of 4, but 1008 runs for 23 wickets (several of which were wrong umpiring decisions) at an overall rate of 2.3 rpo. As David Lloyd said yesterday on the TV – if that was taking place outside my front window I’d draw the curtains.
Still – great recovery from one down, great series win, and made the Indians that suggested 4-0 in england was a fluke and we’d get done the same in india look very sheepish now.Posted 5 years ago
