England v India final Test Offishul thread

Post by Lincoln » Sat Sep 08, 2018 11:58 am

5 straight toss wins for Root...never expected England to get to 300 after yesterday's calipso collapso

Have India ran out of steam?

Are England truly awesome?

England’s long term selection strategy should be to pick 11 allrounders who average 33.

Joking aside Vince you may well have a point there...opening is such a bastard hard thing to do,I used to open for my side...not because I was any good but because most batsmen are too chicken to face the best bowlers with a new cherry in hand.

So long as the all rounders take a shit-load of wickets then well,why not?

Case in point Stokes...he's rampant with the ball right now as I write...just got Kohli and Pant.

6 frontline bowlers is a real luxury. Imagine 3 spinners: offie, leggie, sla, then 3 seamers: swing, pace and left arm - you got everything there.

And a number 9 bat with 10 first class hundreds?

England getting on top now. Good partnership from Cook and Root. I hope Cook can get a hundred in his last test.

Not only a century, goes into 5th of all time. And only 2nd opener with 10,000+ runs, I believe.

Before he announced his retirement I thought he would need another 5 match series to get the runs needed.

Great session for the Poms. Well done Cook. Can't see any result but a England win now.

Fantastic Top Tons from Cook and Root today.

Looks like we're going to thrash the number 1 Test side 4-1.
