Cricket - England v India


Recommended Posts

Eagerly waiting for the first of five tests starting on Wednesday at Trent Bridge. Thought I'd put up a new topic in anticipation.

Anyone watched any of The Hundred?

 

I just can't seem to get excited about the shorter forms of the game. 

 

I'm looking forward to the Test match, though.

Some good Indian batting to look forward to, although, I hope, not too good.

 

Not the most prolific, not the most tenacious, not the biggest slogger but surely the most effortlessly  elegant post-war Indian batsman is Azharuddin. Anybody to match him in the current squad?

 

Is there an all rounder like Kapil Dev? Ashwin is always a problem for England.

Any form of cricket where the bowling is always the defence is probably a waste of time.

Agree, nothing comes close to test match cricket.

Watched it last night this would have been a great platform for some of the players like Richards Botham or the late Colin Milburn.

England all out for a poultry 183 runs it's been a very poor first day .

The England test side is now in disarray. It's best bowlers are near the end of their illustrious careers and it's batting lineup stands between stale and fragile. I can hardly believe how quickly this most recent decline has happened.
