Post by: El Capitan on February 23, 2021, 05:31:54 PM
Day / night test so 9am start UK time  :like:


Got to play Jimmy with the pink ball under lights.

Bairstow to come in at 3. Moeen has gone home, so either bring Bess back or play the extra seamer and use Root more

My XI:

Sibley
Crawley
Bairstow
Root
Stokes
Pope
Foakes
Woakes
Archer
Anderson
Leach

Better suited to seam bowlers, day night match under lights, pink ball should swing.

Is archer fit to play?



Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Uncle Marbles on February 24, 2021, 10:01:46 AM
Yes, Archer is fit.

Won the toss...c'mon on England.

Worse than the fucking Boro

Well I correctly predicted weíd play the extra seamer  :pope2:




Which looks like a shocking decision  Warnock3

Post by: headset on February 25, 2021, 09:56:06 AM
Well my forecast looks to be on the button....i only wish it was England that had a brilliant 1st day like the Indians had........It's going to take a special 2nd batting innings to even get a draw out of this......never mind a win.........unless we knock them over cheap early on today..........1st hour today going to be massive here,,,,


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 10:57:46 AM
Game on!

Limit them to a lead below 50 and we have a chance.




Another joke of a wicket though  :unlike:


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 11:00:03 AM
Joe Root 3 for 0  :mick:

These last two pitches have been a disgrace. Cheating Indian bastards.


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Itchy_ring on February 25, 2021, 12:16:13 PM
Makes it a total lottery when the pitch is this poor


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 12:18:29 PM
First session of day 2 and not a seam bowler in sight.


Donít mind a pitch turning on day 4/5 but this is a joke. Could be a 2 day test match  :souey:

This is ridiculous. Just spoils the game altogether



Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Minge on February 25, 2021, 01:20:44 PM
But surely itís a shit pitch for both teams  :what:



Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Flar on February 25, 2021, 01:36:22 PM
What do you think is a defendable total on this pitch? 85?


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Flar on February 25, 2021, 02:10:37 PM
Anderson out going for the reverse sweep. Dickhead


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Itchy_ring on February 25, 2021, 02:33:38 PM
These scores are like kids cricket  :lost:

Never understood why if your on a shite pitch you don't just go for every ball, full Welly, chance are you're only going to face a few overs so why not try and leather a few.


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Flar on February 25, 2021, 02:44:14 PM
Exactly! Smack a few around - probability is you will get more than fancying around for 30 balls and scoring 5


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 02:51:08 PM
Leach hit a cracking 6!  :bc:


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Clive Road on February 25, 2021, 04:18:35 PM
Test over in 2 days, absolutely ridiculous pitch set for home advantage.
( I know England do the same when we are at home, maybes it is time for an independent groundsman setting the pitches, they did this for the World Cup a few years ago)

3 quick bowlers seemed a crazy idea before the game, now it seems plain stupid.
 Meh.



Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 04:27:33 PM
If theyíre planning on a similar pitch for the 4th test ... we should just play 2 spinners, a wicket keeper and 8 batsmen.

Fill the lineup with our t20 batters and let them just tee off for an hour.


One day test matches... itís the future  :lost:


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 04:32:38 PM
Roy
Bairstow
Malan
Root
Buttler
Stokes
Morgan
Billings
Foakes
Ali
Leach


 :homer:

T20 batters look good to me, five day games I watch the highlights as the days of push prod defend bollox is tedious at best. Dunno why he only played one spinner with Bess sat watching on.


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 07:48:06 PM
Was ridiculous listening to the Indian commentators trying to justify it

Nice stadium though.


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 07:54:07 PM
Aye I wonder if the owners had any say in the pitch they were told to produce??


Got to refund all the tickets for days 3, 4 and 5 now. Would never be allowed to happen in England at £70 a pop  :vids:


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Robbso on February 25, 2021, 08:04:19 PM
23 wickets fell to straight balls (oh dear)we are just shit facing class spin bowling in the sub continent.


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: El Capitan on February 25, 2021, 08:09:13 PM
On a pitch like that youíre fucked either way.

Play for turn and the straight one gets you. Play straight and you get skittled by the spin.



It was just a shocking pitch for day 2 of a test match. Joe Root took 5 for 8 FFS


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Robbso on February 25, 2021, 08:14:48 PM
Word class bowler joe :sid:
Seriously, I think the batsmen were seeing demons in the pitch that werenít there. How many lbw decisions. Play with a straight bat or donít bother getting on the plane

 :sid: Says it all.

Was shit yesterday too as well.

Are we expecting the same in the fourth test and the T20 series.

Should just bowl underarm as a protest.  Warnock1

Same venue?


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test

Yeah. The few of ODIs at the end of March are elsewhere though.


Title: Re: IND v ENG 3rd Test
Post by: Robbso on February 25, 2021, 08:25:22 PM
Why donít we play the remainder of the tour in 5 days and come home :homer:

Mental game that.  Used to love my cricket as a kid. I put so much effort into copying the jaunty gait of Pakistani leggy Abdul Qadir's bowling action.  Had it perfected. Wasn't really worth it as i used to get smashed all over the ground.

As exciting as it was to watch in some ways.....like plenty of other watchers i thought it was also a load of shit as a test match...... 2 top teams and the game's done In two days......

They've shit themselves after losing that 1st test.............i do one someone else said.....treat the next game as a twenty twenty..... Or fuck the Indian tour off next time if they are going doctor the pitches like that at the 1st sniff of a loss.. :like:
