They obviously pay great attention to your wise and influential comments.

A magnificent achievement given the way he was treated early on in his test career.

Re: Home tests 2017

An interesting day all round, boiling up nicely. Will be interesting to see how England perform if they have a decent target to chase.

Given England's flimsy batting 150 might be a step too far.

Re: Home tests 2017

I reckon the prevalence of limited overs cricket and crash bang wallop tactics has affected the cricketing brains of modern players. We're seeing an increasing number of tests settled with plenty of time to spare and it's not always because the conditions are unplayable. There seems to be a dearth of players who can grit their teeth and regularly bat for long periods when required and it's a shame. Although some people find that sort of cricket boring, it's a great test of ability and tactics when a side is faced with batting for well over either to save a match or secure an unlikely win. Test matches are supposed to be all about quick victories.

Well done to Jimmy for hitting the big 500.

.... and it's all over in around 2 days when you take into account the time lost to rain and bad light!

In the days of uncovered wickets I can see why unplayable pitches might result in very rapid results but in the days of modern cricket it has to be down to mentality surely.

Crikey that is a change of tone since the end of the first test.

Re: Home tests 2017

Ireland vs Windies in mid-September - totally rained off, who'd have thought it ?

Incredibly they're playing the Eng/Windies one dayers till the end of the month - cram as many in as possible to make as much money as possible. All from tv of course, no one in their right mind would sit outside all day in this weather.
