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.

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,,,,

Game on!

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




Another joke of a wicket though  :unlike:

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

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.

Exactly! Smack a few around - probability is you will get more than fancying around for 30 balls and scoring 5

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

  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.

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.

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:
