Buttler averaging 32 in test matches after 55 matches, time to bring in Foakes. Better glove man too

Obviously not just Buttler that is to blame, they’re just a better all round side. Better pace bowlers, a world class spinner and Steve Smith and Labuschagne who are world class

Seeing Warner going for a duck again is the only pleasure left now.

Wtf was that from stokes. 4-0 then. One Jimmy Anderson wicket away from total humiliation. Great.

Good grief. Dreadful.

Jesus christ. Shane Warne. I cannot believe it. Holy shit. No.


That’s terrible, just looked at his instagram and his story is still there paying tribute to Rod Marsh.


Wouldn’t have wanted to bowl how I did if it wasn’t for Warne and my Grandad saying how special he was and how spin bowlers were game changers.

Genuinely gutted.

Will be pouring out a Fosters tonight. Fuck this is so shit.


I stopped watching when they went 4 down.

Just had a look at BBC sport now :eyes:

I still can’t believe Shane Warne is dead. At least he was a legend in his own time and got to shag Elizabeth Hurley. Not a bad life.

Stokes being made the new captain makes zero sense to me.

Should post it in the Not Stokes thread.


Bravo @Load :clap::clap::clap:

Yeah same but apart from Root there isnt one other single player with a guaranteed place in the starting 11 so they’re totally stuck for any other options.

Do you make Rory Burns captain??! Fuck no.

I just don’t think they should’ve changed at all.

That is incredible


You can watch the county championship games on Youtube now. Each county will most likely have a youtube channel where it’s streamed live.

I just clapped Root off on my own in my office. Eye wateringly amazing.


I think 2999 is just asking a bit too much, still, you never know.


Root :broken_heart:

As soon as Root went I thought England had no chance but this would be good for a one day innings from Bairstow.

This is absolutely unreal hitting in a test match. Savage.
