Off Twatbook, made me laugh.

People compare chess and cricket a lot. I don't see it. I'm a keen chess player. If someone told me I had to play them at chess on an airbed in a tsunami, because they had home advantage and it was their choice, I'd tell them to piss off.

So anyway, there's me thinking 205 is a shite score and Jimmy starts with that.
Keep it up, lad.

Looks like we’ve picked a bowling attack for the previous deck and not this one. Jimmy might have a lot of work to do.

At the end of the England innings I heard Emily Rainford Whatever express the opinion that England had chosen the wrong strategy by packing the batting and leaving the bowling too thin. I don't agree as I thought Archer did nothing with either bat or ball in the previous test and whilst Broad's bowling was OK, he didn't look likely to get a wicket and his batting is now very suspect. I don't have a great deal of confidence in Bess as yet but I think a 3 man spin bowling line up including Root has more chance of taking wickets than would be the case by adding an additional seam bowler. Moreover we need to pick 7 batsmen to ensure that at least 3 get double figures.

Yes, I think the plan is sensible. Now just a matter of, 'Will it make any fucking difference?'
We'll know by about lunchtime tomorrow.

I honestly think we should’ve picked another seamer ahead of Bess. Especially given Stokes’ struggles. Will be very happy to be proven wrong though.

Root has looked in good bowling form. Hope he backs himself and gets a few overs in.

Just turned on the telly to see Leach taking the sixth wicket. What a pleasant surprise: expected to find the home side about 200 for 3.
Come on, lads!

Hmm, not a great call by the umpire there. Just about understandable, I suppose. All about the height and he got it wrong.

Just saying on TV that the bail doesn't even count - only the stump itself. Didn't know that. [And I don't agree with it.]

We just lost the match in the last 90 minutes. Shame, really: we had 'em going.

On the plus side, we'll probably be seeing rather more of Bairstow playing for Yorkshire in the County Championship this summer.

I read another short article on this.
USA Cricket have purchased (or long-leased) some minor-league baseball stadium in the Dallas suburbs.
They have been picking up investors from the South-Asian community in the US - mostly connected with tech companies. And partnering to a degree with the Caribbean Premier League.
People interested in cricket with some money - can only be good for the game here. Basically, they want to own the rights and develop the streaming platforms.

Universe brain thinking by India - deny England anything approaching a challenge so they are inadequately prepared for the World Cup.

Surprise, surprise 3rd umpire doesn’t give stumping against Kohli. Nothing behind the line that’s a con job.
