Crushed. Another test done in less than 3 daysPosted 5 years ago
Less than 2 days in terms of overs bowled. Not really good, whoever you might support.Posted 5 years ago
The two games that SL played against the Counties prior didn’t bode well for the chances of it being a long match.Posted 5 years ago

oh dear this is getting embarrassing 🙄Posted 5 years ago
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 5 years ago
Moeen Ali is perhaps the most elegant batsman since Gower. Glorious play watch.Posted 5 years ago
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 5 years ago
Wonder how many day 3&4 tickets have been sold for the 3rd test ?Posted 5 years ago
Mark Waugh? Spent half of his career trying not to get dropped by the Australian selectors. Elegant but over rated.Posted 5 years ago
101 all out. Over today, I feel.Posted 5 years ago
Wonder how many day 3&4 tickets have been sold for the 3rd test ?
Its at Lords which generally sells out Days 1-4Posted 5 years ago
Even for a traditionalist/old fart like me, I am starting to quite like these new cricket jerseys (on both sides)
My old one is very worn, not sure what to buy next?Posted 5 years ago
I’ve got 2 tickets going spare for day 2 at Lords this Friday. Mount stand row 5. Face value £75 each, will sell the pair for £60 each. Email in profile.Posted 5 years ago
Dan, looks like I’ll be going on Sunday. Assuming the match isn’t over by then!Posted 5 years ago
Oh, I mucked up application this year so failed to get some tickets for friends, so these may get me back on the Xmas card list, are they still available?Posted 5 years ago
They are. Assume it was your email I’ve just seen. I’ll give you a shout tonight.Posted 5 years ago
CFH – lords in the sunshine – should be a 5 dayer!!Posted 5 years ago
One can but hope!
Although, my last trip there was the Ashes last year, the day of the skittling. Was also there when England lost to the Netherlands in a T20. Am hoping I’m not a harbinger of doom.Posted 5 years ago
One doesn’t go to Lords to see England win – probably our worst record is at Lords in the last few years.Posted 5 years ago
The glorious murmuring of Lords.
Morning everybodeeeeeeee.Posted 5 years ago

Waiting nervously for Sunday.
A wasted wicket there. Pressure back on Compton again now.Posted 5 years ago
Has anyone noticed Hales’ weird eye bulge thing ? Hope you get some play Flashie, recent history suggests it’ll be over by then!Posted 5 years ago
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.

At the other end, Cook is the anti-Hales, watching carefully as Mathews slides the ball past off stump. To Cook, his wicket his priceless. Hales has just traded his for a bag of grapes and a shot at glory. Maiden. Are you watching, Alex?

Kicking myself for not going today, but the weather is set fair for tomorrow – hopefully England can recover.Posted 5 years ago
Buggeration on stilts!
Poor opening day here.Posted 5 years ago
Thought Cook was well on his way to three figures – need a good performance from the strong tail to post decent total.Posted 5 years ago
A very poor day indeed. I’ll repeat my quote from the previous Test …
