Thats the 150 up for 3


#3

Hey Pap how come there are two of these threads but the tags are reversed in one of them?

As Trumps alternate universe already kicked in?

160-3 at time of going to press on this one :lou_lol:


#4

I love the positive BBC - “How can England avoid a 5-0 whitewash”. By playing cricket to the high standards that they have been for the last 18 months?

Going to be a good test this yes, but we are up for a close one overall I think. We can really dig in when we are on our game!

171-3


#5

Shocked that we avoided being 27 for 3 or similar


#6

and thats the 200 up for 3

Root 92

Moeen 47


#7

239-3

1st six of thee match

Root has a century and Meen has a fifty


#8

Root caught and bowled by Yadav with the new ball

England 281- 4


#9

Ridiculous decision there, Root c&b by Umesh but he never really had control of the ball, IMHO.

Umpires on the field gave it out, 3rd umpire agreed with them

281-4


#10

Stokes brings up the 300 with a six

304-4


#11

Close of Play England 311-4 Moeen on 99 Stokes on 19

Not a bad days play by the look of it.


#12

Good day of cricket that. I’m bloody knackered after getting up at half 3 to watch.

A couple of dubious decisions for wickets. Cook should have reviewed and probably didn’t because his partner was too inexperienced to call it.

Lovely batting from Root again. Looks like a wicket that favours pace, which will suit us.

And I’ve decided to start referring to Moeen Ali as Meon Valley. Just to cheer myself up.


#13

Are they using DRS in this test, I heard somewhere that India finally sanctioned the use of it but…


#14

They are. I’ve never been a fan of it, but at least things are uniform now.


#15

There have been early teething problems and it doesn’t solve everything, saying that I’m a great fan of Hawkeye for LBW decisions.

One thing that I don’t like is the Umpires call decision. Maybe they should reduce it from 50% of the ball to 25%!!


#16

Interesting to see how our Middle/Lower order finally cope without insane pressue to recover!

Clearly looks a good strip that should deteriorate, and has to be a 500 + 1st Innings type game. Wonder whether the lads can now knuckle down and take a decent first day total to the realms of a winning total.


#17

Day 2 Moeen and Stokes to continue,

hopefully a good day at the crease followed by putting the Indian’s in, with an hour and half to play and skittling them out.


#18

Moeen gets his century and were away


#19

Ffs wake get shit together turn tv on before going work.

Bowler runs in Moen leaves a straight one, like perfect timing.

343-5 reckon need 180+ more yet


#20

Moeen fails to capitalise and its 343 for 5
