Cricket, lovely cricket


#1761

Bit unlucky, batted nicely until then.

Can’t see Broad or Anderson surviving long, so might see a few fireworks from Curran


#1762

Or not!


#1763

We should declare now. Don’t want Jimmy to get one on the hand


#1764

187, hmmm…


#1765

Even from the few overs in this innings, the gulf in class between Foakes and Bairstow behind the stumps is appreciable.

Broad looking dangerous, Anderson less so.


#1766

I hadn’t noticed that Foakes wasnt out there. :blush: What happened? I was eating!


#1767

Got hit on the back of the hand when he got out trying to pull. Bruised apparently.


#1768

Right… Ill have a look at Bairstow. When Foakes first came in I thought he made it look laughably easy in comparison.


#1769

Broad must have gone past Campbell’s bat 15 times.

Bairstow has fumbled a couple already. Luckily not off the edge of the bat.


#1770

I’m not sure that any of England’s bowlers have got their line and length quite right consistently enough though.


#1771

Stokes annoying so far! Just not making them play. :smirk:


#1772

Good start from Curran!


#1773

West Indies very good, England not so much.


#1774

England’s bowling wasn’t good. Too many leave balls.

WI openers were great though.


#1775

Yes, annoying, Stokes was awful and the others didnt quite get it right either.


#1776

Anderson looked out of sorts, Broad the most dangerous in his first 5 overs.


#1777

FFS, easiest slip chance possible, Buttler drops it.

Broad bowling some snorters, if he gets one he could get four or five hare.


#1778

No time to watch today… :frowning:


#1779

Foakes not on the field (having an x-ray on his hand)

Broad will not bowl like that again without taking a wicket

Anderson very ‘off it’ again

Stokes bowling some beauties (and took the wicket)

That’s about it

Oh, and I can’t believe Moeen hasn’t had an over yet…


#1780

Just switched on, 121-1, Off 45.4 overs. England receiving a proper lesson on how to play test cricket. :+1:
