Another great game in the white ball championship. First Pakistan then Sri Lanka now Bangladesh putting a record stand of 224 together (after being 12 for 3!) to beat the Kiwis - and they'll qualify for the semis if England beat Australia - which will mean NZ & Aussie going home!

Perfect antidote to too much election special.

I'm changing my nationality. I think green and white would suit my complexion, Pakistan here I come.

A non-cricket-loving friend has loaned me their password to BT Sports...whereas before I was happy to go to sleep listening to TMS, I've now been up all night two nights straight, my work is suffering...it's bloody great. Two quick wickets this morning and we'll have 'em right on the back foot...

From CricBuzz: "ECB Director of Cricket Andrew Strauss has jumped to the defence of wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, clarifying that the alleged 'headbutt' is his way of greeting his mates and there certainly was no malice in his action or intent."

KP on Twitter: "Strauss says ok to a head butt greeting. Canít wait to see him again!"

It is indeed, especially on this day that a oaf is installed in No 10 and the Ireland cricket team is shellacking England at Lords... How ironic...

Ireland shellacking England at Lord's? Mmm, very unwise to slag off a cricket team until the last ball has been bowled.

Agree about the 'oaf' though!

I've corrected that for you PGC.

Ha!

Well, it was a jolly good shake up on the first day. And anything that ignites a passion for cricket is a good thing.

Should be a doddle for England given they got the difficult one out of the way!

G'day Declan. Don't apply for a position at TMS.

Exciting times ahead...

Hello all,

New to this thread but thought I'd jump in after the first test has played out it's exquisite torture.
I'm not too despondent though. England were a player - and such a crucial player - down, and if they can find a solution to limiting Smith, the sides are fairly evenly matched on paper. Still plenty to play for.

Spin didn't look good to me either. That 4th day was a killer.

Perhaps they could try booing him....im sure that'll work...

messageRe: Idle cricket musing
Posted by V511 August 08, 11:57AM

Maybe the way to deal with Smith is not to deal with him. Just factor in that he will score a big chunk of runs every innings and don't spend your energy and focus trying all kinds of tactics on him. Instead, give him singles so that the strike keeps rotating to the other players and focus your energies on getting them out, because the rest of the aussies batting line up isn't firing reliably. They are vulnerable.

And then sort our own batting out of course...!

Its only 1 nil . If anderson was fit he would of probably taken 3 or 4 wickets per innings and the game would of been completely fifferent. Losing him also meant our biwling atrack was knackered in second innings . . 3.1 england

Why don't I care about England any more? Is it because I am getting old and grumpy. Or I've lost interest in cricket since it was lost (live) from terrestrial telly? Or a reaction to the superiority complex of the media and many of the fans. Perhaps I was far more bothered when we were underdogs. Open question, discuss....

messageRe: Idle cricket musing

Not having it on TV does make a difference, I think.

I'm working somewhere that I can't listen to TMS and can only snatch the odd glance at Guardian OBO which has the effect of making it less vital. Also no-one at work understands or likes the game. I am in cricket purdah.

I think it is safe to say (notwithstanding the world cup) that we are deep in underdog territory.
