    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Makes our pathetic first innings effort even more frustrating. India need to just hang in and wait as they know we will self destruct eventually.
    india's not had the momentum ever since the prior bresnan partnership. not bowling with the same venom.

    For some reason I thought he was a one Test wonder, but he did in fact play three. Ian had retired by then though.

    looking very good
    England certainly won't score big because it seems so hard for new batsmen, or at least the new English batsmen. These are probably England's best accumulators at the moment, with Trott out of form, and the middle order are hardly going to be confident.

    That's not what you said. You said you made the post the second time to hit home. That's the absolute definitely of trolling, frankly, and you admitted it ffs

    Lets not pretend you came in here and said he was batting ****, either. What you said was completely different.

    On the "sons/grandsons of test players in the same team" thing; obviously Alec Stewart & Mark Butcher must've together a fair bit and must've both played with Dean Headley at least once, so there's another threesome.

    Did think about Ealham too, but his dad didn't play tests, if memory serves.

    Compton finding more gaps now and rotating the strike better. Always helps, better than just staying there and doing bugger all anyway. Decent start now, long long long way to go though.

    Oh come off of it, either your posts are moronic or trolling. Take your pick.
