India v England - 5th Test (16th to 20th December 2015)

Just switched on and England are batting, currently 214-3, Bairstow just clubbed a 6 over mid wicket.

Jennings (1) and Cook (10) failed to trouble the scorers, Root was out for 88.

Wonder if India are up for this one having won the series 3-0?

We’ll stumble to 450ish.

They’ll get 600 we loose by an innings.

But best of luck to Liam Dawson though.


Great to see Dawson involved - though the carnage of this series isn’t the best place to get chucked in.

However he performs, hopefully he gets another chance in less stressful circumstances.

Moeen survives an LBW call, umpire gave it not out, was going to slightly clip off stump so it was umpires call.


Indian commentator having a right fit about “Umpires call”, which I sort of agree with.

Athers giving a valid and reasoned reply as to why Umpires call is there, the Indian bloke not having any of it.


Oh, apparently Moeen was dropped on 0, he’s 89 not out at the moment!!

Bairstow out, drives the ball straight to the man at cover, 49 (90)


The collapse is about to begin on a very benign wicket.

5th test century for Ali, 4th this year.


1,000th run of the calendar year for Moeen, 4th England player to do that this year.

17 matches at an average of 47.86

281-4 and Moeen 117*

Stumps 284-4

477 all out. Dawson 66 not out on his debut, take a bow Liam :lou_lol:


Nice one - now let’s bowl sensibly and try to get a draw.

Stumps, India 60-0

We seem happy to give them the singles and for them to get themselves out. Little of anything to note.

India 700-6

India are going to declare soon I’m sure, we will lose a couple of wickets by stumps.

We are going to lose

What are this week’s lottery numbers?
