    That Bills game last night was the largest spread beat since they had them apparently.

    Thought the Bills were supposed to lose every game this year.

    Pakistan looking like Hong Kong reserves here.

    It was not a summer for openers. That’s the only reason I can see for cutting both sides opening pairs some slack. Jennings was poor, Cook (last Test aside) was alright, Dhawan was just bad and Rahul didn’t show what he could do until the last innings. I think the only argument for keeping Jennings is that Sri Lanka should be easier to open in. God knows who to put with him, weight of runs says that Burns has earned his chance, but Vince has been in decent form most of the summer as well and should have played in front of Pope last Test. Gubbins and Denly the other names I keep hearing, or one of the old guard like Hildreth or Mitchell. England also need to sort out what to do with number 3 as they can’t keep shoehorning in allrounders there. So that’s the top three places that need replacing and too many biffers to fit too few places in the lower order. Buttler up to number 3? Curran to replace Broad to give him a rest and everyone moves down a slot? Think they will take Stone to SL after the summer he’s had, and Leach as a second offie. For India they need to find an all rounder that’s more of a batsman, as Pandya ain’t good enough. They would have been better off playing an extra bat like Sharma.

    Finally, wonderful Test all round really. Great summer, two competitive series, some very exciting Tests. Bit too skewed in the favour of the ball at times, but made for very close contests.

    Some of the gambling accounts I follow have like 100K green on India if they win because they were a comedy price last night.

    India might do this...

    They have been very unlucky with the ball though, Shami was excellent both innings and could have ended up with 5-30 instead of 2-180 or whatever it was. England will win 4-1 but it’s been closer than that.

    Hah this might be over tonight! Broad and Anderson unplayable here. Shame Anderson didn’t get Kohli as the overs he’s bowled to him have been the highlight of the summer, well, after the Aussies getting humped.

    Root getting some Kohli-esque luck today. Odd as India have been so sharp in the field this series.

    Would be nice if Root could get 8 more as well as he’s not pushed on for a while. Think Cook’s innings just underlined how badly he will be missed. He’s going to be very difficult to replace. We haven’t really replaced Strauss yet, so having Cook go as well is going to make things hard for a while.

    Well that’s as good an ending as Cook could have wished for.

    Yeah Osaka was much the better player but this is going to go down to Williams losing it rather than her winning it which absolutely wasn’t the case.

    Crazy end to the women’s final. Williams losing a penalty game and going mental. Crowd not happy.

    Well my nephew didn’t find the cricket overly compelling, mainly as the couple sat behind us spent the entire time after lunch having a huge domestic that was much more interesting.
