I hope that they don't receive any government funding for this farce

Any chance we might get another ten years out of Jimmy?

The problem is, who do you replace him with? I think they need to bed in a new opener before Cook's time is called.

The selection policy on the whole looks strange to me. Players Like Malan and Vince are far from prolific in county cricket, so how they're expected to bat right at the top of the order in tests is odd to me.

If it were me I would be looking towards Bairstow, Stokes and Ali to move up the order to protect these newer players until they hopefully find their feet. At the moment we're 3 down before you can blink a lot of the time, and then the pressure is on the middle-order. If they then fail as well you get skittled like here.

The players don't give two F's about playing Test Cricket nowadays like they did back in the day. there is too much money on offer for three hours work in the IPL , Aussie 20/20 and the likes.

I honestly dont think there is many batsmen in the world who could bat through out the day if their life depended on it . Long gone are the Tavere's , Boycotts etc who could bat 50 overs for 20 runs. That's unless they were facing the English attack on a flat pitch :lol: Its all , get in , try to smash 40 runs then throw your wicket away to a stupid shot going for a spectacular 6 so you look good on TV

To be honest I wouldn't have ali anywhere near the test side, he is not a test cricketer, neither is Vince, you might be right about cook but there isn't anyone around county cricket scoring lots of runs atm more concerned about one day cricket.

Could be a good last day...ominously no wickets yet.
It will probably p!as down with England needing one wicket to win.
