Anybody there, or watching on TV?

We're up against it already.
Yep, team selection all wrong. I just cant warm to the idea of this no spinner approach we seem to be adopting lately. Haseeb Hameed should of played as hardly anyone in this side has played red ball all summer, but as we well know its jobs for the boys

After a few hours of painful watching yesterday, The Hundred put on an entertaining match.

Test cricket does itself no favours at all, taking players off for bad light when there are floodlights is ridiculous.

England back in it though, my guess is India chasing around 80 in the 4th innings to win.

I fear for the Ashes with the current openers. How many times will we be 30 odd for 2 in the series.
Roots captaincy just cost us the game. Tailenders smashing us all over the field. He should concentrate on his batting.
95 first innings lead omg

You have to feel sorry for our bowlers. They are usually bowling with less than 200 runs to protect.

Throw in the 2nd worst slip catching percentage in international cricket. They still regularly bowl teams out for decent scores.

The batsmen need to some runs. I imagine we will he 70-5 or something at the end of today😕
