Test Match Cricket


112/3 now. Kohli hits his 50


126/4 Kohli gone




England win


Cook expected to retire after the final test.


Confirmed. He hasn’t been great this season but England have a big problem in replacing him.


New lad couldn’t do a hape worse though than recently.


True but he’s had more partners than Mick Jagger since Strauss retired and no one has staked a claim. Robson, Lyth, Jennings, Stoneman, Hameed etc


You know too much about this shit.


They need to find some young lad who doesn’t give a fuck. They won’t find another cook for a while.


Stick Curran in there.


What could possibly go wrong?


At least they can move on now. He outstayed his welcome.


Cook has been past it for 5-6 years now. He had the knack of producing a really big knock after long barren spells just as it looked as he was about to be dropped. It might just be liberating for a new pairing and not having to bat with Cook. Curran will surely be given first chance at it.


England `123/1. Cook 66 n.o…


Typical cook recently. Once there’s nothing much at stake. By all accounts a thoroughly nice man though. Good luck to him.


KP wouldn’t agree


cook gone for 71, root follows for :duck: here comes the collapse…


The Pataudi Trophy is already in the bag. The World Number 1 side have been conquered.


Followed by Bairstow.
