that was a good and true article ken, not sure on moeen opening, I would take the same route of Australia and give ben stokes a go at opening, perfert place to test him over the next two series, he wont feel under threat because if it don't work he can drop back down the order, this way they can drop lyth and blood someone in at no3 ready for a move up at a later date if stokes don't work out.

I doubt this will happen

So we won this series and that is something to be positive about. However, I think This article has it spot on.

Imagine spending around 500 quid watching the last two days live. And having my father in law for company yesterday, who makes boycott seem like a positive, optimistic glass half full kind of character

Broads due a new high score, wonder if he can beat his 160 odd between the showers

I really must stop predicting a result. A draw...as if!

IMO 20/20 cricket sounded the death knell for proper cricket. I hate it with a passion.

I think this series is marking the end of test cricket as we know it, and I for one are very sad.
A test is a test of all parts of a sportspersons mental and physical abilities, this seem to have been lost now, when one team gets the upperhand , that's it, game over , no steel and backbone anymore. they might aswell go ahead with the idea 90 overs each per innings and be done with it

Has the look of a draw, doesn't it. I think Cooke/England was seduced by another green tinged wicket, but the Oval definitely is not Trent Bridge! Was feeling sorry for Jimmy A. but perhaps he is glad he is still unfit.

After that morning I half expect to see them bat most of tomorrow then see if England collapse or stick it out for draw saturday

Ralph, the ballot opens today to get tickets for next year's oval test (final match vs pak) I usually get lucky with tickets this way, I probably won't bother for that one tho

Slightly o/t but why are the womens test matches called the ashes? There is reason the ashes have that name. When did this happen in women's cricket??

We need an opener and a spinner for a start...and a number 3 batsman, perhaps?
