I completely went out as i had to take my girlfriend to the garage that was in for an MOT. I was a bit miffed as i thought i'd miss us sealing it but it looks i only influence the wickets if switch over to Sky Sports News!
Haven't noticed this thread before. Shocking stuff at the Oval but we all want to know - Lewisant, did your girlfriend pass her MOT?  ;)

Yes this is the other end of the test cricket spectrum from the Ashes - no crowd, no atmosphere, hot conditions, slow pace. Bore draws is the best England can hope for I think.

Fascinating, do they go for it or not?

Personally I think its reachable if (big if) we get a solid start.
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

i dont think the pitch has worn as per normal, so yes go for it. good steady start so far after 2 overs
we need someone to score a hundred but 284 is doable with a day to go

If he hadn't have been such a complete ars* he'd still be in the setup....so smashing the ball to all parts in a 20-20 isn't relevant anymore.
