- My dear old things, it's STW TMS!
What an absolute fiasco! Why no follow-on?
the trend has shifted away from enforcing the follow-on. There’s a school of thought that it’s better to keep your bowlers fresh if you can, rather than sending them straight out again.
Sports science as well isn’t it…..
it’s now far more recognised that fatigue rather than absolute workload is the main contributor to injuries. And with test coming thick and fast, keeping bowlers as fresh as possible reduces the risk longer term.
So in this case – the likelihood is that they’ll win anyway, there’s no time or weather pressure forcing their hand towards a 3 innings victory, but they can rest their bowlers because they can, and at the same time make the England attack go and toil again after barely 3 hours sat down.Posted 3 weeks agomeftyMember
Like pretty much every sport, the season has extended so much opportunities are limited, I will be going to my first county game this year in April before Easter, a couple of weeks after the end of the Sheffield Shield. Likewise the season almost finishes in October nowadays.
Really pleased for Wood, such an enthusiast, and well done Jennings for making it to stumps after all the grief he has been getting, it is a big boost to be none down.Posted 5 days ago
