Never too early to start thinking about cricket! Somerset's championship year?

Off to see Oz vs India on Friday the 4th as part of Test match. Oz currently 2-1 down. I have been told by my cricketing friends to bring some sandpaper to wave when Oz get a wicket

Must have been a very satisfying watching the Indians totally grind the "baggy greens" noses into the pitch, amassing 622 runs ! Looks like the first ever Indian series win in Oz is nailed on, particularly after taking 6 wickets in a truncated Day 3.

Personally I might have been tempted not to declare, and carry on piling the runs on and totally humiliating the cheating barstewards ! I suppose if the weather holds up, it gives them a good chance of a 3-1 win though ! (clap)(y)

Typical Australian summer, ended up losing the best part of two days. Shame, I think India would've comfortably won the final test had it gone the distance.

Also a shame because I stayed up to try and watch it play out.

These days in the Windies we *may* look to a second spinner, in which case probably Leach in for one of Curran or Broad. Otherwise I agree.

Well, we did go for a second spinner - sort of. Rashid instead of Leach, Broad misses out.

England lose the toss and field first.

Anyone who is going out for 2020 ashes in Perth Australia will get to see the new Optus stadium.
Completely different from the WACA but a very impressive venue. Went there last night to see scorchers v thunder in bbl in a reasonably high scoring game. (the pies were lush and only $5)

Like the bad old days of Discourteous Ambrose.
Indeed. I remember 46 all out from 1994.

I was foolish enough to buy a share in a racehorse at that time and we named him Fourtysixallout. Typo by the trainer who registered the name (facepalm) The horse was even worse than the England batting collapse. Feckin' dire to be frank.

Absolute shambles - how’s this lad Chase got a Michelle he doesn’t even spin it !!

Broad should of played for sure & leach over Rashid surely

Keaton Jennings surely it’s over for him - he’s awful - get Denly in if no other option or fly Jason Roy in

Have to find a way of keeping Curran in the team. He has got us out of a lot of big holes.

Awful England performance but we know they will put in an absolute stinker from time to time.

Pleased to see Burns get some runs.

England confirm No Pants is in for the second Test in place of Keaton Jennings. Adil Rashid is also definitely out with either Broad or Leach (or both!) coming in.

Curran is a 4th seamer he’s not an opening bowler - Woakes is a better bowler than him and bats as well.....
Correct answer. Just not enough pace. We keep making the same mistakes the moment we step out on tour.

Curran will be fine in English conditions but about as threatening as Robbie Simpson everywhere else in the world. Anything over 120 lead for the Windies and we'll be in the brown stuff
