Thorpe was a proper player


England 302/7 at stumps on Day 1 of the 4th test in Ranchi. They were in big trouble on 112/5 but an unbeaten 106 from Joe Root has them in the test match.

We’re you at the cricket @ChairmanDan

Bazball RIP

Wales and England look to be in the driving seat in Ranchi

Abandoning Bazball and letting Root be Root as discombobulated India

England have found a spinner who can actually spin the ball maybe

The 5th test is in Dharamshala so that’ll surely be rained off. It never stops raining there.

Or a draw. It was the flattest pitch I’ve ever seen in the World Cup.

We are collapsing in Ranchi. India in the driving seat now. Lead of only 167 with just 4 wickets in hand.

England 353 & 121/6 India 307.

Throwing it away

110/3 to 145 all out. What a dismal batting collapse. India need 192 to win.

England facing an innings defeat. Bazball RIP

The crucial wicket of Bashir gone. 9/189

Red rover. India win series 4-1.

As an aside Dharamshala is easily the most beautiful test ground in the world


The less said about the cricket, from an England perspective the better. I was in Dharamshala about 20 years ago. It is absolutely spectacular up there the odd time it stops raining.

That was a very weak Windies batting performance on Day 1 of the first test at Lord’s. England in control of the test match already.
