    Well, this test is bubbling up nicely!! The first session day 1 was a minefield, now its a more traditional indian pitch with a few cracks developed already. If we can finish tis off for a good 1st innings lead then I wouldnt want to be batting last!

    tightest of umpires calls…. looked like it was missing leg in the replay.

    it’s a bit all over the place from England spinners but it’s working 😀

    I think a par chase on this pitch is 200. If we get a 100+ lead, then setting 250-300 should be well beyond reach on days 4/5

    Are we surprised? One Root innings is all that serperates this from a pretty average performance.

    So Anderson calls it a day, perhaps was ‘persuaded’. Would’ve liked him to beat Warnes record. Still, not enough superlatives. 🐐

    I read it today it’s hardly surprising. It’s one hell of a professional sporting achievement. His knees must be toast.

    Shame he couldn’t sign off at Old Trafford, but Lord’s not a bad 2nd best. I guess the deal must have been to be given one last run out at a home test.

    Sadly his place in the team isn’t a sympathy vote – short term the team will go backwards without him available for selection.

    I hope he goes into coaching rather than media. Just pulls a different sweater on and stays with the team for the rest of the summer.

    He was obviously forced, he has been very vocal about his desire to keep going (which is refreshing for top level sports people, who seem to be in a race to retire sometimes).  I’m sure he would have preferred to exit at OT but maybe its full circle, wasn’t his debut at Lords?

    I’m sure he will appear at OT on the pitch but I would have paid handsomely to be in the crowd had he been playing, you’ve no choice but to pay handsomely at Lords…

    Just listened to the Tailenders episode and from that I suspect that whilst it was a tap on the shoulder it may have been just what he needed.

    It’s sad to see him go, I thought he’d play the full English summer then go, going overseas again felt unlikely to me.

    Scotland absolutely belting it round, shame there was only 10 overs of that!

    Although covers coming back on at the break and some pretty serious clouds around, not even sure if we’ll get a result?

    No way – England would have battered that score I reckon – it’s a shame we didn’t get the opportunity.

    Thriller between USA and Pakistan.

    Anyone else thinking what I’m thinking?

    Mind you, the USA guy Jones, gives it a whack.

    Unusually pleased for USA tonight – after that ending (at 20 overs) I thought they’d bottle it big time in the Super Over but the Pakistani bowlers were very weirdly completely undisciplined.

    Only Pakistan could deliver a Super Over like that.

    Well played USA after nearly choking it.
