*Official* Fifth Test (The Oval, London) 27-31 July


International Captain
Robinson was way off the boil earlier in the series. There was a mild hint from Ali Martin in the Guardian that he's not kept up all the fitness work that clearly helped him so much last summer and in the winter.
10 wickets at 25.6 in the first 2 Tests. How is that way off the boil when you're comparing with what Anderson is doing?


International 12th Man
Moeen ali back to retirement..permanently..age 36 is too old in this younger man's sport - see lyon similar age and out for months

Cloudy conditions today- I dont think aus will get 250, the ball will hoop around.


International Captain
a good example of stats don’t speak the whole story
No they don't, but I also think Robinson is deceptive because he appears to be a bit half hearted some of the time.

If Anderson was matching those stats, England would've won the Ashes by now.


U19 Vice-Captain
Jimmy bowling nicely so far this morning. Getting it to move off a much better length than yesterday and getting it to zip through. Deserves a wicket.
