England vs Australia 4th Test, Trent Bridge

Post by VTR on Thu 06 Aug 2015, 9:00 am

First topic message reminder :

As The Ashes thread has gone on a tangent arguing over who is SA's best fast bowler, let's get back on topic with a match thread.

Conditions for the 5 days look generally dry so there will be an almost certain result for either team. Also looking cloudy for large periods, so the loss of Anderson might be huge for England

England: Cook, Lyth, Bell, Root, Bairstow, Stokes, Buttler, Ali, Broad, Wood, Finn

Australia: Rogers, Warner, Smith, S Marsh, Clarke, Voges, Nevill, Johnson, Starc, Hazlewood, Lyon

And I should think Clarke wasn't expecting to face the 9th ball either!

Hooray for tube strikes! I'm currently sitting in my living room, listening to TMS, rather than in an overly hot office, checking cricinfo when I think no one's looking.

Another fantastic ball, another well-taken catch.

Will the Test last two full days?

Be fair to the man. That was clearly a typo. He meant 30ish for 5.

True marky. We need to bring on a bowler to restrict the run rate a bit.

Let's be honest, it can't be much worse than 20 for 5.

Wow. Didn't get my picture going for twenty minutes and I've missed half the innings !

Run rate is good ; but I'm not sure Cook will be too concerned at this stage Smile

Broad seems to be relishing his promotion to Number 1 bowler....

300-5?

are you taking the proverbial KP?

pup was wrong about their only being ten batsmen in the game anyway.. in the first innings it's a lot less.

I read a rather appropriate article by ricky pointing on cricinfo talking about how modern batsman don't seem to have the ability or the intelligence to ride through a difficult spell and see off a bowler. Seems pointing should have shared the info with the aussie team.

Quickest five wicket haul Broad has ever grabbed , I'd fancy .

What was Clarke doing there ?

Mind you , he is top scorer at the moment Smile
