    pitch seemed to flatten out yesterday, england batted their best so far in the series, and at the close of day 3 were 448 in front....No rush to declare IMO, bat until the WI have no chance of theoretically winning the match, i.e set 600 in 150 overs and then they'll have 4 and a bit sessions to bowl them out.....I've never got this fad with early declarations, why give the opposition even the faintest sniff of victory, take that incentive away and you've more chance of bowling the opposition out

    WI 154 all out with Wood getting his 1st five-for.......England's bowlers turned up today and blew the Windies away with wily spin and pace like fire....Over to the England batsmen to try and ram home the advantage...Batting doesn't look that easy, but if Eng can get a lead of 300, that should be enough, one would think....I wish it was like the old days and was a 5 match series as one can't help feel that the WI have taken their feet off the gas regardless of how well England bowled
  3. as Clark Gable once said 'Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn'....lol....sorry, just jesting......25cm not from an easterly, but from a nice channel runner/slider....lovely and just goes to show even darn sarf here you don't need a raging easterly to get the best snow events, and the modelling was pretty much on the ball for this from T48 out
  4. I hunted for cold.....and got 25cm of snow in one sitting....bloody awesome winter for me, bring on the CFS!

    and there's another 90+ mph thunderbolt to get another wicket......74/5.....certainly shows the folly of playing a medium pacer in the first 2 tests

    wow, just clocked 95mph!!....that's extreme pace just to put that into perspective, there's only a handful of bowlers who have ever bowled quicker than that

    This is more like it!...Moeen gets a double breakthrough, and straight after, Mark Wood bowling with genuine pace (90 mph +) gets 2 in 2 and is on a hat trick....59/4

    his face doesn't fit.......this england setup has all the hallmarks of 'jobs for the boys'....how some of these players get chance after chance is beyond me, is the standard of county cricket that bad now?

    another shambolic collapse by england, no surprises there really....just when you think they can't collapse any worse, they do.......a remarkable talent indeed!....so will england's bowlers turn up today or will the Windies make them look like village green trundlers again?.......time will tell
  10. Damn it!!!!.....I meant to post on the ICON!!!!......but the exclamation key on my keyboard is stuck!!!!!.....what can I do?!!!!!!!...has it north, south, east, or west?!!!!!!..... Sorry, I'll fetch me coat!!!!!
  11. but by how many miles!!!.....5!!!, 10!!! or 50!!!....Shaky needs to know!!!!!
  12. it's been said before that winter starts on the first snowfall and ends on the last snowfall....for me, winter was from 31st Jan to the 1st Feb....but what a stonking winter it was!.....An absolute belter!

    you have to laugh, Campbell hits our premier seam bowler out of the park to win the match.......out thought and out classed, England have been pathetic. No leadership, no technique, no mental strength.....just nothing

    132 all out with a top score of just 24........an absolute shambles, someone has to carry the can....this series has been a disaster of epic proportions and has shown the sri lankan 'victory' in its true light (i.e the sri lankan bowling attack, as shown by the aussie batsmen, is one of the weakest in living memory).....england have to face better bowlers than Holder, Roach, Joesph and Gabriel this summer....Hazelwood, Starc, Cummings & Lyon will destroy england....a 5-0 drubbing awaits

    time for Root to be sacked or resign as captain, he aint good enough......he's too naive, and can't score a run to save his life.....where england go from here I have no idea, there's very little obvious talent in county cricket, I fear for the future of the Eng test team as they have no batsmen capable of batting long periods of time, and after Broad and Anderson retire, I can;t see where Eng are ever going to take 20 wkts to win a match
