Tour of India coming up, 25th Jan to 11th March
So no room for Liam Dawson, despite the great season he’d just had.
Dawson is signed up to the South African T20 league which takes place at the same time
That would have been binned if he was offered the chance of Test caps.
Not sure about that. It is a lot of money to walk away from.
I think you are right, Liam Dawson has pretty much implied that he would be very unlikely to cancel his SA T20 contract,(worth £150,000) in favour of a tour place. he pointed out in interview that he is now 33, has not been offered any kind of contract with England, and has to look after his and his family’s interests. Realistically who could blame him, let’s face it there won’t be too many pay days like the SA one.
Crazy 2 day test in the offing at Cape Town, after Saffers won the first.
SA all out for 55 in 23 overs. Siraj 6-15. India reach 153-4 with Kohli set and then bowled out in the next 11 balls without scoring.
Has anyone checked the betting patterns?
India just about to bat again, need 79 to win.
It’s lunch on day two
21-0 from 3 overs
