It's all opinions but I thought how refreshing it was to have a real wicket keeper behind the stumps. Foakes had two stumpings in that second innings, as compared with Jos Buttler who had his first stumping in 26 Test Matches where he's kept wicket, during the recent tour of Sri Lanka. I also thought Foakes was excellent in standing up to Broad, thus preventing Ashwin from leaving his crease and yes whilst standing up he did drop one edge but the majority of his glove-work was impressive.
I was just joking after this morning - didn't think he distinguished himself today. But we don't have an Alan Knott. [Or a Derek Underwood, come to that.]
Joking?? I have a vague recollection of the concept, however more importantly, I was praising a non-Yorkshire player (moreover one from fucking Surrey), which surely trumps any attempt at light-hearted frivolity?
On another topic, does Kohli ever just trudge off having been given out, without asking for a review? I think he's taking the victory by England in the first test as a personal insult.
