Root wins toss & bats.
Must bowl 98 overs in a day, each session extended by 15 minutes so lunch & tea at weird times.
Playing Moeen & Leach
Debuts for Olly Stone & Jason Roy.
What could possibly go wrong?

43-7 Moeen gone

Good because the abuse I got was a tad harsh, I’m a gent and wouldn’t be so reactionary to people personally, I am smirking though, we can’t play line and length on a green wicket, Starc will fuck us so hard we’d be thinking we’re in a S&M porno.

#15

Murtagh currently 5’11

#16

69-9
At least passed their lowest Test score at Lords 53 in 1888

#17

85 all out. Some decent shots by Stone but an early lunch I guess

#18

Is he expected to grow?

Indeed we also are throwing in 3 wickets straight up before we come out (maybe 2 if Roy is a success).
