Re: English Cricket

As long as England don’t need above 200 in the 4th innings it’s now looking like Roots decision may well be vindicated. They will need to be very careful not to over bowl Archer though.

But then if you drop Roy then you need to drop 3 or 4 other batsman and that upheavel is no good for team cohesion.

They ain't got any cohesion anyway Den. They should open with Leach, he's got more talent than any of the top order.

At the moment this England batting line up would not get into a pub team but you can't suddenly bring in 4 new batsman during a Ashes series.

This Ashes was lost 2 years ago with a clear lack of any cohesive strategy afrer we lost the Ashes in Australia.

if the Ashes have been lost which they probably now have, then of course you can bring in 4 new batsman. (And sack the captain). An new strategy won't work well with the status quo.

Was thinking about going on the fifth day if there was a game on -silly me !

Poorly led by a captain who was made England captain more on his name rather then on any tactical nous he possesses.

Re: English Cricket

I'd have swapped Roy and Denley round in the batting order. May not make a difference but worth a go.

It won't make a difference as it won't happen given that Roy is likely to get dropped for the next test after another low score today..

Re: English Cricket

Blimey went out to watch a local footy game ( last minute winner, it's a beautiful game ) come back and we haven't lost any wickets ! How's that happened? Has there been a thunderstorm in Leeds?
