Hope today puts the idea of 4 day tests in bin.
Test cricket needs attacking captains to survive in current format. Can’t beat a close test match.
A close finish indeed. Another surprisingly good performance from a team who are fast becoming a force, at home.
Unsurprisingly an unchanged squad for the decider
Last chance saloon for Westley
Should have picked Livingstone then Essex would have more chance of winning the championship.
If we had won at Headingly, I guess they may have experimented a bit.
And, once again to the forum software

Are you sure you’re providing adequate time for other people to share their points of view, too?
Dealt with, unless you’ve posted 100% of posts.
Thanks Jon. That often disrupted trolling/discussions about prog with certain antipodean doppelgängers. Glad to see the back of it.
Pleasantly surprised we’re all still here too give the tinkering
Just remember, rm -rf, while the backup drive is plugged in
It was a polite way of telling you to shut the fuck up occasionally.
Shai Hope had played 11 tests averaging 18 before Headingley. Doubt if England would persevere that long.
Westley looks all over the shop though TBF.
Yeah, but WI don’t exactly have a lot of talent to choose from though.
We need to include a couple of the one day side, let Hales play his natural game.
What happened to Mark Wood, thought he would be a stand out player this year
Injury that he’s not really over yet. He’ll be back though, too good not to be.
Ben Stokes, unplayable in this form.
Bowled 14.3 overs - unchanged - and took 6 for 22. Breathtaking!
Stokes is one of our best batters aswell. If we could find a couple of batsmen we would be the best in the world at the minute
He’s also our best fielder!
The stand out all-rounder in the game at the moment
500 wickets for “Average”(© Rocky) bowler, Jimmy Anderson.
Congratulations to JA. Magnificent achievement! That’s some exclusive club he’s joined now.
Just think if he wasn’t just a “good bowler in favourable conditions” he might have been one of the greats!
