Test Match Cricket


#4501

101/5. They’ve dropped Kohli on 21.


#4502

All out for 275, they’ll be happy with that.


#4503

Kohl’s last man out on 149. Expensive dropping him as early as 21. 92 put on for last two wickets and what looked like was going to be a healthy first innings lead for England is only a lead of 13.


#4504

Nicely poised now.


#4505

Cook out last ball of the day. England 287 & 9/1 India 274. A lead of 22.

England’s old failing of missing the pace you need to skittle out the lower order rears it’s head again. India were variously 59/3, 100/5 and 182/8 but got up to 274.

I’m going tomorrow.


#4506

That was a very good chance missed dropping Kohli on 21. Very expensive. Not a good day for Cook. He’ll surely be gone after his summer unless he scores a few runs.


#4507

Tis a joke he is still in that squad.


#4508

He’ll go and score 289 not in his next innings.


#4509

No one has made a case to replace him. But agree that he is done


#4510

The gomey face on him as he is out early doors once again is reason enough to drop him.


#4511

Disaster of a morning. 86/6. Last two wickets lost just before lunch. This will be over today.


#4512

87/7
Bad light stops play? Huh? I thought you were in the middle of a glorious summer there Geoff


#4513

We are. Bit of cloud cover but back underway now soon. They’re desperate to get this into Saturday at least. It’s bad news when a test match doesn’t even get to the weekend. Wise decision to go today, instead of tomorrow.


#4514

Were you going tomorrow? Jesus that’s poor. Kohli would be insufferable now.


#4515

No, here today. Had a pass for one day, today or tomorrow.


#4516

174/8


#4517

Broad gone now.


#4518

Engurland all out for 180.

India need 194 to win first test.


#4519

Reading in my match Programme that India’s highest ever successful run chase in England was 174 at the Oval in 1971.


#4520

Post up that article, mate.
