Rain appears to be saving India from some horrendous batting. 15-3 and there has probably only been about 20 minutes of actual play :joy:


#182

Struck gold with that toss did England.

Subcontinental sides against Anderson in these conditions are his meat and drink.


#183

India :arteta:

EATEN by Anderson

FFS I missed all the play.

My Indian friend has been complaining about their selection but I didn’t think it was that bad :joy::joy:


#185

ECB’s media team got your back


#186

Cheers! I always seem to miss it when England have a great days play. I’m sure tomorrow I’ll witness a batting collapse of our own.

Judging from the highlights our fielding in the slip has actually been poor again today…


#187

No great sides in Cricket anymore is there ? Just home team dominance, seriously 85% of series last few years must have been won by the home team.


#188

Home teams these days just gimp the pitches to suit themselves these days.

Apart from England maybe and that’s why we’ve seen so many good tests there


#189

How many tests is this England vs India series ?


#190

4th test is absolutely huge. Really looking forward to it.


#191

England win the 4th Test, take this series 3-1 brilliant stuff.


#192

Yeah today was the perfect day to be bowling. Moeen Ali was superb, great conditions for a spin bowler.


#193

Fantastic stuff from Moeen


#194

Great series. Sam Curran’s a huge talent.


#195

#196

His not that old is he in cricketing terms ? Maybe 34 ? Has played a lot of cricket though, maybe the mental fatigue has worn him down.


#197

Cook gets a century in his final international innings. What a way to end your career!

He also managed to piss off Piers Morgan in the process which is the cherry on top


#198

What a guy.

Still remember the hype when he destroyed Australia in that ashes series, read a nice writeup about it too.


#199

A century in his first test and a a century in his last test. And he did it all purely to annoy Piers Morgan. What a hero.
