    County Cricket 2022

    Nah don't mind it at all. You gotta be strategic. As long as it doesn't waste time.

    County Cricket 2022

    Good luck to the England batsmen (and Pujara) trying to make a mark - looks like conditions very much in their favour right now.

    England players and selection discussion thread

    Agree - I think I really just want to see Parkinson play. Everything you said above makes sense, to be fair.

    England players and selection discussion thread

    I remember watching Chapple in one of his last seasons and he was bowling 87mph+. He was certainly not slow. I think this is a good point to make. However, I just think the bowling is a bit of a non-issue for England - it is the batting which feels in a very poor state.

    Leach never lets-down but rarely steps-up and stands-up above the rest. I think England need a spinner who can take 5-fers

    120kph very kind for Stevens.

    Harsh on Coverton, I think he just needs to get it a bit fuller in Test cricket to be more threatening, imo. The economy will suffer but I think he could find success. He just needs to adapt from being pretty quick for County to very medium pace for Tests.

    *Official* SriLanka in India 2022

    I'd love to see him against a top-tier spin bowler but I don't think there are many around, currently.

    *Official* SriLanka in India 2022

    I'm not newer generation but absolutely at home! Numbers will never do justice to his impact - and his numbers are pretty damn good! In England or New Zealand or South Africa, it might be slightly harder to justify inclusion due to his weakness against swing.

    *Official* SriLanka in India 2022

    Was brilliant - everything you could want - sixes over mid wicket, charge cover drive against pacer, flick overhead sweep, strong cut, playing a shot through his own legs.

    How would you rank the greatest test teams of all-time?

    I think both bowling and batting would fall seriously short.

    How would you rank the greatest test teams of all-time?

    Struass' England and Waugh's Australia would destroy us (Kohli's India) if we tried to play them away.

    ***Official*** India in South Africa 2021-22

    Two things: - Rain is forecast - If Siraj is able to bowl full-tilt then 210 should be enough, if not then probably would like 240 lead.

    Please get rid of Pujara and Rahane! Please!!

    Is it time to drop Pujara and Rahane yet?

    Will this be England's worst ever 5-0 defeat in Australia?

    And anyone genetically connected to Australian posters, such as English posters.

    Will this be England's worst ever 5-0 defeat in Australia?

    It was pretty crazy turnaround between 2005 and 2006/7. Simon Jones was a deceptively big loss to the attack. I tend to find that losing one star bowler of the main 4/5 can be a deceptively huge loss. I also remember that it really surprised me how Shoaib Akhtar blew away England not long after...

    Official Jasprit Bumrah fanboying thread

    And I think (and may be mistaken) that the English sports scientists once found that spell length was the biggest injury risk factor rather than total overs.

    Kevin Pietersen - story of a genius

    Now I'm going on a deep-dive of James Taylor and what a sad end to such a promising career. Watching an interview and he described the initial attack as "my ticker is ****ed" - which is something that I have felt before and is very worrying.

    Kevin Pietersen - story of a genius

    Agree here. The documentary made me like KP a lot but this was a big and significant display of poor behaviour.
