20 minutes of TV drama! Was it worth getting up – not sure, I might suffer later. Interesting that Cook turned (again) to his seamers and England got away with it despite their top-order batsmen struggling against spin and their spinners struggling for consistency.

T20 or Test matches?

VERY interesting – and alarming. Once again, the thin end of a very nasty wedge.

Apparently the last time that an England spinner opened the bowling in both innings (Batty) was in 1928 v South Africa. The bowler was Sam Staples of Notts. So what you ask – this is a Hampshire site. Well Sam Staples was Hampshire’s coach after retiring until the late 1940s when he became an umpire and Arthur Holt took over.
