But at least you saw the rarity of a English player scoring a ton.

Did you see any of Pakistan v Australia? Now there was an exciting match... 14 wickets fell in 5 days, i.e less than 3 a day ! Still, nice to see cricket back in Pakistan.

Root should have stepped down from the captaincy a long time ago as its been very clear for a long time that he does not possess the skillset to be a good captain.

As for England's batting its been a shambles generally for several years now.

He's not captain material, but we're kidding ourselves if sacking him will solve England's problems. Too much white ball, money chasing, "100'/20/20 crap. We've forgotten how to play proper cricket.
Not the players fault it's those that run the game in this country. They are only interested in money/tv contracts.

l very much agree with all your sentiments there Mr K.

Whether anything changes is another matter.

Re: English Cricket

Joe Root resigns as England captain. If he concentrates on his batting that will be good for all concerned.

Re: English Cricket

Is this ‘wokeism’ gone mad. Just checking on Lancashires Roses match today at Headingley, to find the ground is now called The Clean Slate Headingley.

Yes, a very aptly named Indian media and streaming company called Clean Slate Studios apparently.

Re: English Cricket

Off to the other Old Trafford shortly. First T20 of the season against the old enemy.

Both sides stacked with top notch batsmen, come on Lanky.
