Windies will surely take a crack at this. Get it down to 50 off the last ten overs. They may not get a better chance this series.
At their current scoring rate, they'll still only need 3.5 an over in the last ten. Although the light might be an issue and England's over rate is pretty scandalous.
Is there anything better than the West Indies beating England in cricket? Just for the historical significance it's the best.
I sorta mean the whole former slave colony thing.
Matthew Wade is averaging less than Peter Nevill before he got dropped. So he's not getting picked on his batting ability and while he's keeping has improved, he's still average at best.
He must be the first cricketer in the history of the sport who is picked solely on his sledging ability.
The Roar thinks Wade is goneskiNo one is really standing up and demanding to replace him though. Nevill did play well in the shield after being dropped and Whiteman is the only one with any sort of batting record, the rest are too young, poor with the bat or not really test ready. It will make the first few shield games important.
There is the nuclear option of Handscomb at 7 and another batter.
A disciplinary group has been set up to investigate a cricket match which decided a Pembrokeshire league title but sparked a row about fair play.
Officials have received complaints about Carew Cricket Club, who declared after only a few balls against Cresselly on 26 August.
In doing, they denied their opponents the chance to win Division One.
Pembroke County Cricket Club (PCCC), which runs the game locally, confirmed the investigation.
Former Glamorgan captains Mark Wallace and Steve James were among those who criticised Carew, while TV presenter and cricket fan Piers Morgan called it a "disgrace" and a "farce".
It follows the final game of the season, when Cresselly won their 'title-deciding' match against Carew, but it was the latter who ended up as champions.
Carew, who started the day 21 points clear and with 20 points for a win, declared on 18-1 to deny Cresselly the chance of any batting or bowling bonus points.
Stokes' bowling today was brilliant - some simply ludicrous swing and movement going on.
Batting - same old same old. We won't be posting 300-400-plus anywhere in the world when you're carrying 3 batsmen. Time is running out, and it doesn't fill me with confidence with the Ashes fast approaching.
I was at Lords yesterday, was a good day to watch. Lots of wickets and Stokes was excellent. I was really hoping Anderson would get his 500.
