Church Of Foakes congregation! We will now sing Hymn 104: "Thou shalt not judge a 'keeper on rudimentary fielding stats."All join in for the chorus now: "Use your eyes! Yea! Your eyes, your eyes."PS @205 B-V - Forgetting CC's greatest ever specialist #6 bat & bowl (from the mid-90s. that had weird hair) is a sin! But as you've confessed, you are absolved My Child. Hallelujah! ...purple
@201 James D - I knew Jos was in top limited-overs form, but conventionally you'd assume massive improvements in Tests came from hard work!Had wondered if he'd just used his brain & nothing else...in which case, that's surely a huge lesson for our top order to learn?
Well done England. Enjoy for now.But far too many hit-able long hops from spinners and with no quicker arm balls in the armoury to trouble tailenders in particular.Openers also a major concern still.Better oppostion to come who will certainly take advantage of these deficiences more than SL. MUST be addressed!
A fantastic performance by England! Very proud
Why oh why did Root persist with Rashid so long ?He bowled utter dross, same ball one after the other never looked like getting a wicket and concedeing almost 4 runs per over.Terrible captaincy !
"Here comes Stuart Broad to try and end this nonsense." The Beeb back on arrogance mode
Purple Hair @197I apologise for the misnaming - I was assuming the talkative hair was your own (I however have none, talkative or not).Liking the idea of a Church of Foakes, something to work on there... 😜 Meanwhile, fingernails, pulse...
198Just like Gale at Yorkshire, Root does not know how to use Rashid to best effect - brings him on as an afterthought or desperation. He is wicket taker and partnership breaker. Yes it was run out today but then Root reverted to Leach and Moeen - neither as good.
Err the draws still on skipper
watching old-fashioned1. Sky TV pictures on screen with 2. TalkSport2 commentary on audioTalkSport2 commentarty is really excellent ! (ducking) Constant running description of CRICKET going on top high quality speakers& really great thing is NO ADS on TalkSport2 esp at end of over/wicket fallnb: so hate Sky Ads at wicket fallnb: a lot £ for Sky ADS interuptions :-(
@186 Paul Smiths Purple Hair.I think the ability has always been there but he is misunderstood as a T20 Slogger. He got moved up the order by Warne in IPL and showed a real calmness and patience then.
