England cricket team

I'd say "what a difference a month makes" but given we were 80 odd for 6 AGAIN, maybe it doesn't.

 

Some half decent knocks lower down again but up top it's a disaster.

 

Also worth marking cooks retirement. In his pomp he was simply the best opening test bat anywhere, and his style - such as it was- won't be seen again and I think that's a shame.

 

But test cricket is alive and well, it's been a great series with great bowling at times from both sides. Maybe that's test crickets niche now, sporting wickets and low scoring games. If you want to see bowlers carted round the park you've got the shorter forms of the game.

Absorbing series,its been fine margins at times,India have struggled here for many years but have had the upper hand on many occasions,especially at the game I went to @ Trent Bridge.

Kholi without doubt has been the standout batsman,hes carried his homeland throughout this series,one can only admire the way he plays.

Young Curran has really impressed me for England and it was brilliant to see a resurgent Moheen Ali return to the fold.

Sad to see Cookey retire,his series DU in 2010/11 was sublime,he just wrecked Aus on their own tracks and put their bowlers to the sword seeing off the new ball,and at times seeing off the next new ball,the timings about right fair play to the guy,hes been prolific beyond belief and all England cricket fans will remember his efforts for many many years.

Great to see a tour away going well for once,and new blood in Foakes and Burns doing well,Moeen bowled well thus far,decent knock 1st up from Jennings,encouraging stuff from Galle.

Englands selectors have wanted shut of Bairstow for sometime,now might be the time if Foakes can continue his form and Butler gets decent scores,somtimes your face just doesnt fit,selectors must be doing cartwheels after Foakes innings.

Warm welcome home will ALWAYS await JB,englands loss will be yorkshires gain,not sure which will infuriate the selectors most!!

Well, it’s cold outside so that means on some sun-drenched cricket pitch across the globe, England are getting hammered. Lovely to see the West Indies play with both grit (take note our batsmen) and fire, particularly with the ball but we’ve got to be better than this. At home, under leaded skies, with sympathetic groundsmen and jimmy et al with a duke ball, we can give everyone a game and beat most, albeit without scoring much. At ODIs we look good anywhere. Test cricket, if the ball comes on a bit quick or spins (or doesn’t do that looking at the last test) we are clueless.

 

wheres it all going wrong?
