    There is definitely potential in this England team. The bubble/rotation/quarantine issues certainly aren’t helping.

    I was hoping for more from Bess after his time a few years back in the Indian Spin Academy, but the pandemic & lack of cricket has hit him hard.

    Root has bowled really well though.

    Bess has a fundamentally inconsistent bowling action. His upper body and head lunges and lurches. Any class batsman knows he is getting at least one rank bad ball per over. Batsmen don’t have to ‘make’ shots against him to score.

    I like Leach. He needs to be careful that he doesn’t become another Tufnell, obsessing about flight and forgetting to spin the ball, and in the era of the balsa wood railway sleeper he needs protecting when someone starts lining him up on a batting track.

    Root’s bowling has been great on these raging bunsens, but on pitches with any live grass his bowling is standard round arm filth usually typical of a top order batsman (Chris Gayle, Graeme Smith etc). He’s difficult to get away, though.

    Anyone watching the T20 series decider? India are scoring heavily, Kohli still in.

    Great start by England apart from Roy’s early wicket

    They’ve screwed it, mainly due to great bowling by Bhuvneshwar

    Looking like it could be a good close contest in the ODI decider.

    Yep – looking forward to the chase.

    My favourite part of this tour has been the commentary/analysis of Dinesh Kartik. Real insight into the Indian mindset and tactics.

    England still in with a slight chance here, though once Moeen went it was always going to be very unlikely.

    Rashid gone after a superb catch from Kohli, surely game over now.

    Still in with a chance!

    Good effort to get that close. We looked dead & buried when Mo went.

    It’s been a good tour between 2 very good teams, shame England couldn’t get a win in one of the series but hey.

    Morning campers.
    It may not be a test match but the Couny Championship is back today and many counties have a live stream. Essex v’s Worcs also has live comms on 5 Live Sports Extra.
    Pleasant background noise for a day on the home office I’d suggest.
