Evaluating someone performing their main discipline, and even deciding it's not good enough, is fine by me but when people mention it in respect to their 2nd discipline it really just makes me wonder if they know anything. Was talking about potential pitch doctoring England could do with a few guys at the club today, and I mentioned how we can't even play a spinning pitch because Australia have the better spinner, and someone corrected me by saying, "no, it's the fact they have a proper spinner". I mean what does that even mean?

    We need to get Chris Woakes in for the Old Trafford test. 1st unofficial Test: England Lions v Australia A at Manchester, Aug 7-10, 2012 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Edit: Didn't notice Bairstow got a ton in the second innings. ****

    Yeah all well and good if the rest of the batting was firing. It's not so I'll take the guy with 22 tons over the other two who are also failing

    I mean unless you think making three changes to a batting line up in the middle of a series is sensible, but I don't

    Likely to be a different wicket at Edgebaston. Might even turn late if England last that long.

    Okay and it's 1-0 on neutral territory

    Seriously. You are transparent as ****. I have ZERO problem with people who support their team and want to rub salt in the wounds. But blowhards who are nowhere to be seen when said team is losing? No time for that. Bore off
