They're Slurry bowlers, of course they're good. Been skittling counties out for under 50 consistently that lot.
Woakes will go the distance on these tracks, surely. Better off seeing the Surrey Boys Club haemorrhage runs than have Woakes blacklisted from the test team for this...
6.30am seems a reasonable start time tomorrow, actually... I don't think I'd get up any earlier but I'll manage the first hour, I reckon.

Those three are all equally awful bowlers tbh
Shouldn't be near the England side
Batsman I tolerate: V. Richards, S. Tendulkar, E. Morgan, N. Hussain. KEVIN O F******* BRIEN
They should definitely play Briggs IMO. Even if it's just for the fact that he's better than the seam bowling alternatives.

Dinda in for Shami.
This outfield is madness. Absolutely ridiculous. Fielding will make a huge difference today.
Ishant's wrist action seems to finally be back to what it was at the beginning of his career with the stock ball consistently coming into the batsman.
Aka we've forgotten how crap he used to be?
match has england score 310-320 and india knock it off for 4 or 5 with 3 overs to go. Need 350+ imo- not happening tho.
period. Regardless of whether he was good or not at least he was moving the ball. For ages now, he's just been praying for the odd random ball hitting the seam and doing something!
and unless there is some reason that im not thinking off i dont really like england batting first here. so easy for india to win playing like this.
Bell's hitting them absolutely beautifully. Such a form player I've never seen

Root at 4 will be interesting given that KP is replacing Trott at 3.
Bresnan is our king
Good start, but we must need well over 350 with this attack in these conditions.
And surely Buttler should be playing.
This is dead boring after the pitches in the last series.
