he Ashes: I think we might become a victim of our own hype. Feet on the ground, guys. This is the Aussies after all!

World Cup: This could be our year. OK, a bit of a set back v the Aussies but look at how we hammered the Afghans!


Think I may have the extraordinary power of seeing the future. Off to buy my lottery ticket for tonight.

England will not win at Lords. In fact I fear they will get hammered again unless big changes are made. Archer MUST play. Bairstow should be dropped and Buttler to go behind the stumps. Denly should be sent back to the wilds of Kent, while Root should bat at 4. Moeen is a sad reflection of what he once was so maybe Jack Leach or Adil Rashid in as the spinner. Sam Curran to be recalled for his left arm pace (and his batting ain't bad either). The Jason Roy experiment has failed...Bring back Sir Alistair!

We also need to nobble Lyons, Siddle and Starc and steal Smith's kit bag!

Dead rubber but a good result ahead of the Ashes to get us into the right frame of mind. Root is class.

It was a good knock, but with a lot of luck. I was watching England consistently beating the bat, but not getting the edges.

I thought England did really well to adapt to Sri Lankan conditions, which England teams haven't done in the past, but a lot of the techniques they clearly worked hard on for that tour have been their undoing here.

The batting talent pool isnt strong enough currently, look at ollie pope, only a kid and played a handful of games, but gets pulled straight into the England setup and discarded just as quickly. Denly has a decent season at 3 for Kent, not outstanding by any stretch and is identified as the best available opener, meanwhile Jason Roy, a lower order batsman for Surrey scored some decent runs at no3 for the lions. I'll be watching the start of the County season closely, if someone like dom sibley starts well he could be thrown in

The bowling talent pool is a lot healthier, but since 80 for 4 is such a common sight in an England innings no's 789 have to get runs, so some very good bowlers won't get a chance while selection is so muddled.

They should sit down and watch Darren Bravo's innings. Grafted for almost six hours for 50 and got hit numerous times
reminded me of Brian Close.

The other big problem is the ECB have ruined the County Championship by playing it at the start and end of season
to accommodate pyjama cricket.

I think if Broad and Anderson had got first shot on that wicket things might have been different...That said, the state of the wickets in the WI should never come as a shock to a touring team!

Luckily I don't support those robbing barstewards at Sky so I listen on the steam wireless. Mind you, that doesn't make the torture any easier to bear.

We never had much luck today but thatís cricket. I had a bet we would bowl them out today. Lost. And broad and Anderson would take 2 wickets each. Lost. Anderson was in a right mood.
