🏏 1st Test :engerland: England (and Wales) v India 🇮🇳 - Edgbaston

#1

So, the start of the “proper” cricket after :engerland: and :india: share the honours in the limited over formats.

Are we on for some proper 5 day tests or will they all finish early?

Will Vince score over 30 in any match?

Are they even an associate member? Well, maybe the Aussies might be able to bet THEM at White Ball cricket atm.

England are pottering along quite nicely so far, albeit with the loss of Cook from some really nice spin bowling into the early damp. But no top order collapse.

India’s quicks aren’t really giving the ball much chance to swing. And I don’t know that there’s be consistent turn for the spinners, so England could do well batting first.

Jennings is back, which I’m in favour of. I admire his gangly stylings.

Massively unlucky way for Jennings to get out there, just as he approached his 50.

I really shouldn’t have fired up Mobdro.
My bad, sorry Joe.

Kind of you.

I can’t help but feel England have spunked a good day up the wall here post-tea.

Whatever happened to those old type tests where you aimed for 450 + in the 1st Innings?

Can’t watch it today, so making do with TMS. Sounds like Sam Curran is having a hell of a spell.

Close.
Nearly loaded we on a ball too early. Tactic seems to be working, ignore test until a break then check and Curran has undone their good start.
But Kojli still there nailed on 250 n.o. for him

My bad. Pressed wrong button and Rahane was out.
Or does that mean I can watch?
Hmm complex
