As a Warwickshire fan, nice to see Sibley hit a century in the warm up game ahead of the two test series in NZ. He certainly has the temprament and technique for it, time will tell as to whether he is up to the pressure and increased bowling skill he will face. He can't be any worse than Roy, though, who was an abberation of a selection.

Fingers crossed. He was a run machine last season.

Looking forward to seeing a partnership blossom with Rory Burns.

I’ve just clocked this and it did make I smile 😊  But what does it say about our lot?

First time seeing Sibley, it took me about 2 minutes to work out he was hopeless on off stump or just outside, took New Zealand approx 100 minutes. How do such limited players find themselves in the national side?

In Sibley's case it's the runs he scored last summer in Div 1 of the Championship which should be a strong guide. I know what you're saying though, at test match level limitations and technical flaws get found out. Same thing applied to Westley of Essex who was a very leg side dominated player - he got found out. Still it's early days for Sibley.

Very very poor batting this morning to throw away all that hard work yesterday. A lot of pressure on Jos Buttler to make this a decent total now.

Infuriating watching this England side under Root's captaincy. His use of Jofra Archer is borderline negligent.

What an awful 4 days of test cricket as an England fan. They are seriously poor. This lad Sibley is abysmal. It's an absolute road and him and Burns have made it look like Sabina Park in the mid 90s.


Someone said this Santners best ever bowling. BEST EVER, 3 fer. He's an international bowler. Sh1te.

Sibley finding out just what a big jump to test cricket it is.

Same old England in tests, I'm afraid. Awful shot selection, toothless bowling and lacklustre in the field. Think it may be time to give someone else the captaincy to be honest.


Of course, I am hoping a bit of reverse psychology may give us the edge later, but I have very little faith we'll bat the day out to be honest.

As Jacko has pointed out about Root. He needs to be removed as England captain.

Root though.


Remember when he was mentioned in same breath as Kohli,  Smith and Williamson?


Distant days those. Taking the captaincy off him before the next test is the only way forward imo.

Capitulation, approached the day totally wrong, far too negative, they should have got the 260 by tea. Only Denly, Curran and Archer come out with any credit.

Shocking they couldn't defend the stumps on that pitch. It's becoming all too familiar these collapses. Back to the drawing board and basics for many, perfect example was Stokes, nearly bowled out by an in swinger and instead of showing a bit of patience he slashes at the next ball gets an outside edge that luckily flies over the keepers head.

Just seen the 'highlights'. Beyond atrocious. Another pathetic shot from Root and he seriously should be replaced now. Huge game coming up now. Another surrender and could be curtains for a few of them.

The team has been heavily shaped to play limited overs cricket with an eye in this years ine day world cup. It worked in that we win the World Cup and are probably the best one day side in the world, but Bayliss' alledgedly cared little for the long form of the game and it looks like it has had an impact.

Give it a few years of a change of focus and we could have a good test side again. Frustrating that Aus, India and NZ seem to be able to play all 3 forms though without too many issues.

All or nothing with English sport.

Decent start here by England, Williamson gone early. I look forward to our plans for Watling.

Never complaining about VAR again after seeing that decision by the 3rd umpire on the clearest lbw you'd ever see.

I haven't seen it yet but assuming it meets the criteria of where the ball pitches (hawkeye decides that) and if the batsman is playing a shot or not, then isn't it all down to ball tracking ? i.e. it's totally decided by the technology not the 3rd umpire ?
Were there some different circumstances for this one ?

Not even if that VAR decision leads to an opportunity to vilify Jake Livermore?

This I've got to see  ;D  ;) .

Aussie 3rd umpire invented an inside edge on as plumb an lbw as you'll see.

ah right, again the combination of snicko and hot spot should decide that...but sometimes very thin edges hardly register. I'll have a look later.

Finally watched it - assume you're talking about the Ross Taylor non LBW ? I hate to disagree  :) but there was a faint spot that showed up on hot spot in the place where the ball passed the bat...and also a faint spike on snicko at the same time. If there was one without the other I'd say it wasn't conclusive enough but given that both picked up something then correct decision.
