Such an English sport haha.


#162

Well we invented it, but we’re not currently the best at it :santi:

I think India are ranked number 1 at test cricket at the moment.


#163

Nah boundaries and the other runs all count towards that total.

Yep.


#164

I’ve enjoyed Australia’s break from Cricket for the last 4 months, other than 5 measly one dayers in England.


#165

I think that goes for a lot of sports the English get the credit for inventing, no? Football, cricket, rugby…


#166

Tennis. Tiddlywinks. Hide and Seek. The list is endless.


#167

Really quality test match going on between England and India, hopefully England can get over the line.


#168

Kohli dismissed, and Stokes takes another.

Looks like we’re about to lose this one. Been a fantastic test match.


#169

Can’t beat test cricket!

Getting kohli was the big wicket we needed


#170

Mad to think that Kohli has scored 200 runs in the first test accounting for almost half of our runs across the two innings.

Will take a miracle for Pandya to see us home here.


#171

As good as Kohli is, he’s a bit of a wanker, isn’t he? I haven’t disliked a player as much since Mitchell Johnson!


#172

That should be that now


#173

Was it the celebration when he ran Root out?

And yeah, it’s over now for sure.


#174

Was a bit cocky lol, but I guess when you’re that good…


#175

Epic test match.

Better than anything during the Ashes. Two proper teams going for it - love it.


#176

England Vs South Asian sides test series in England >>>>>>


#177

Crazy test match.

I’ll just share all four days plays highlights here because it was a freakin’ barnstormer.

Malan’s a relieved man indeed.


#178

Rashid justifying his selection too, no?


#179

Beautiful attacking bowler who’s really taken his game to new heights of consistency these last few years.

Studied his overall technique a lot to improve my own bowling.

Think a lot of the criticism was based on the ECB ignoring the county system in favour of Rashid’s form in white ball formats.


#180

Yeah I’m not a fan of Virat, but it can’t be denied he’s an unbelievably good cricketer.
