    What an astonishing day , I got quite emotional at a number of points! . So wanted Kohli 0 bowled Anderson caught Cook for the record. Just brilliant entertainment.

    Tuffers and Aggers talking about “sweaty balls” 😀

    Just push them through the ring.

    This is not going according to plan.

    broad and stokes aren’t fit, rashid  has no control and Moen has realized he’s number 1 and doesn’t like it and Anderson is striving too hard to do over ol’ Glen McGrath. So we have one bowler 🙂

    Shane who?

    Would love to see how that ball of Rashid’s compares to that ball of Warne’s

    Watching the slo-mo replay I’m thinking “why is the ball heading over there?” Looks like it landed in one of the footmarks and got some extra grip in there.

    And there you have it … Jimmy wraps up the series with his record breaking wicket.  Almost a mere sideshow to the insane comings and goings of this particular match.  There really is no format quite like Tests.

    From the Sky commentators, the Sri Lanka test pitches are raging turners from ball 1 this winter😳

    I have to admit to feeling rather down this morning.

    He’s has been such a big part of the last decade of England cricket, and watching the interviews with him, and James Anderson last evening (classy of Ian Ward to cut away when Jimmy dissolved I thought) made me realise that although I’ve never met him and never can be as close as his old team mates and roomies, I’m going to miss him too.

    Never again will I wake up for a wee in the middle of a winter night, think “I’ll just check the score….. ah, Chef’s still batting, all’s OK with the world” and go back to sleep.

    Privileged to have been at the ground on Monday

    SPOTY, and I suspect he’ll be on Essex’s card as Sir Alistair Cook next year.

    One of my favourites though is about 20s into this highlights reel from Ashes 2015……. helping Nasser with pronunciation of long words.

    I always feel down after the last test of the summer, TMS is summer to me. It was a perfect way to end it though.

    Buttler and Curran were huge positives for the series. Not sure about Rashid but I can see why he was played so he would be integrated into the side before Sri Lanka.

    Obviously, the is still have an issue with the 3 openers, England shouldn’t try to replace Cook, there are few if any old style openers left in the world now. What is needed though is someone to stick around long enough so that Root and the impressive middle order do not face the new ball. Buttler should bat at 5 as a specialist batsman, he’s proved he is good enough. Barstow does well at 7 and should go back there.

    Bowling wise everyone goes on about spin it’s the lack of pace on pitches that don’t do much that worries me.

    Farewell too Chef, a good series, and to a great summer.

    It is true that the last test does signify the end of the summer. But still, what a summer of cricket, and in fact sport in general it has been.

    Be a shame not seeing Cook open, partly as he’s such a fine player, partly as there’s no-one else to go in instead.

    LIstening to the first SF, and off to Taunton to watch the second on Sky at the ground, and hopefully remain for the final.

    suspect it’s a little quiet at Taunton currently (edit….Bangers has just been on waving a white flag). Wright has gone beserk.

    If you’re still there come final time, this will have been one hell of a game!!

    This ‘Cricket Social’ replacement for TMS I am listening to right now…thoughts? Not for me I’m afraid – I’m guessing it is cheaper to broadcast. Anyone know when they are going to use this format – for all overseas matches or just the ‘low rent’ tests?

    Talksport have the Live radio broadcast rights to this series, hence no TMS.

    Its on TS 2 so my DAB cant get it round here 🙁
