- My dear old things, it's STW TMS!
Unfortunately the match has all the competitive edge of firing squad versus bloke tied to a chair.
This might ultimately do England a disservice. I don’t care how many 80s he gets against this lot, Hales is not a test opener as long he has a hole in his arse. Woakes is not a test class bowler, batsman or fielder. Finn is a shadow of his former self. Having said all that, sub in Wood for Finn and Stokes for Woakes and things look a lot better.
Compton seems determined to have as much of a mare as possible, he is unlikely to get a second knock in this match, so I think it might be curtains for him.
You can only beat what is in front of you, but beating this Sri Lanka team on pitches that they haven’t got a clue on is not proving anything.Posted 3 years agodannyhMember
Mark Waugh might have something to say about that, but I see what you mean. It is like the word ‘languid’ was invented for him. Still disappointed at the amount of shit being talked on the C5 highlights. Simon (once played a bit for Middlesex and got twatted out of the park in a Lord’s final) Hughes talking about Anderson getting a wicket with swing when it was a wobble seamer that darted away.Posted 3 years agoStonerMember
Stephan Shemilt not holding back there on TMS text:
This is one of the worst shots you will ever see on the first morning of a Test match. The deck is flat, the sun is out, you are playing at Lord’s. Alex Hales has faced one ball from Rangana Herath then tried to hit him to Abbey Road. The ball is too wide for the slog sweep when you’re on 150*, let alone in the first session of the match. Edged, taken at slip. Brainless.
