Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

Already qualified and it doesn't really matter if they finish 2nd or 3rd as they are not playing any more games at Old Trafford this season. The outfield is being completely replaced for next year.

That still does not excuse a poor performance though.

A waterproof 3G surface with a roof would be best at Old Trafford

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

Knocking the football end stand down and letting Leeds Rhinos use the whole playing area at Headingley would be a good idea.

Extending the Yorkshire Dales and making a land grab of Lancashire land would also be a great idea ! Oooh - we've already done that !

Why not start an Aussie Rules league and use the cricket grounds all year round?

Sam Curran get M.O.M in first test and gets dropped to make way for Stokes.

I would have been tempted to leave Rashid out and play five pace bowlers given how badly India have played seam/swing bowling so far.

Good fun match that. Michael Vaughan was taking it seriously towards the end and he still lost
