This Test Match is fabulous! They might not be the best 22 players in the world and the pitch is a bit dodgy, but stick all that into the mix and Hah!! It’s almost as exciting as Bake Off. I wonder how many millions are watching?

PS I posted this as Cook survived a review at 109-2. It’s now 132-5 so …. Can there be another twist or are Bangladesh poised to make history?

PPS A little while later, we have the answers: no there can’t, and yes they are.

In the post-match ceremony, Mr Graves took his place alongside the beaming home ‘bosses’. He’s well-named really; ‘In affectionate remembrance of English spin-bowling and batsmen who can’t play it’ – still not to worry Colin, there’s Brass along with the Muck in the White Ball stuff.

In case you’re wondering, the answer is no I didn’t watch it (never have).

So we lost ten wickets in twenty two overs. Clearly we aren’t good enough at batting for twenty overs. The solution? Replace the County Championship with a T20 Championship immediately.

Clearly I should be a senior executive with the ECB.

Off with his head! (it’s all a bit Lewis Carroll anyway and Alice did marry a Hampshire cricketer)

It’s probably a good thing for James Vince that he’s not associated with that defeat. His replacement Ballance has averaged 6 over 4 innings.

Comment by Hedgehog

Before the Tests Mehedi Hasan had 41 wickets in 12 games.

Mason Crane has 45 in 16.

I wonder how many other countries would not have picked him (sorry, but I just don’t rate Rashid, other than as a lower order batter against us at Basingstoke!).

Nice comparison.
