Bangladesh V England 2nd Test

#1

OK so we scrapped through the first test by 22 runs and looked like getting hammered off the Banladeshi batsman this morning but have pulled it around and got them all out for 220

presently England are 2 for 0 with about an hour of darkness left

Our top order are cocking it all up again. Let’s hope Bairstow’s got another decent innings in him.

What an extraordinary day’s cricket. Bangladesh were cruising along at 171/1, and scoring at one fuck of a rate too, then - kerblamm! - nine wickets fell for 49 runs. Astonishing stuff.

If Root and Moeen (plus one or two of the other batsmen) can dig in and keep it together, we could be on for a decent enough lead on first innings. It’s a pretty big if though, as they have good spinners and the pitch is turning.

Whatever anyone might think, I’d see no disgrace in losing to Bangladesh, as they’re a pretty decent side these days - all the more so on home ground. But, unless our top order can start getting some runs, and our spinners can start exerting some control, the tour of India that follows this is going to be very long and very, very tough.*

I was going to use the word ‘hard’ there, but then I read it back.

#12

Time for the “clearly we should not have rotated our bowlers” comment.

One bad session by them and we lost the test.

Which is basically what Twitter has been saying


#13

And the “at least Vince would have scored about 20 each I nines compared to Ballance” comment


#14

Didn’t see that coming. Well batted Woakes & Rashid, but some odd captaincy, can only assume he overbowled his best spinner.

Can they grind out a few more? Key & Cork were chucking down Commentators curses for the last 20 minutes


#15

England achieve a first innings lead against all the odds.

Woakes and Rashid doing the business


#16

Double Nelson & we get a comedy moment with a get out of jail free card for Woakes who plays a horrid shot to a horrid ball & it’s marginally ruled a no ball over waist height.

Lead of 4 now


#17

As expected New Ball does the trick but great effort from Woakes.

Ansari & Moen to open for England? In about 2 balls time I’d guess


#18

Not far off D_P we have a lead of 24 runs could all be over by teatime tomorrow the way things are going


#19

They take new ball with their spinners turns sideways 2 wickets in 2 overs.

We open with Finn who goes for 8 off his 1st over :lou_facepalm_2:


#20

Bangladesh 85 - 2 a lead of 61 drinks being taken.
