by David Hopps7/6/2017 3:44:42 PM
2 in 76 or so before that.

Interesting stat from cricinfo last 4 England captains got 100 first game
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:43:58 PM
wish Moeen would leave it but not sure he trusts himself to duck/get out the way, this is the perfect time for Moeen to bat. SA are tired and he can be very positive. Its the role Matt Prior used to love. Still think he should be batting at five, just as a workload issue with the Keeper who is still performing is other role full time
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:43:21 PM
Philander returns. Moe edged to slip anyone?
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:42:44 PM
Pressing the pedal and driving right off the cliff potentially.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:42:19 PM
Already 46 in 7 overs, Root and Ali pressing the pedal
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:41:43 PM
I don't mind Mo attacking the spinners. It's when he takes on the short ball in test cricket that annoys me.

Lords Gower "What was in that drink", Beefy "Don't know, lets get some"
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:39:48 PM
Moe'll want him one of those now.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:38:53 PM
Root straight 6 all the frustration coming out in that
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:38:35 PM
Now they're cooing over how aesthetically pleasing he is. I'm sure Vaughan wants Vince back in the side.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:38:26 PM
he'll never learn it seems
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 3:38:22 PM
Another drink, get on with the game!
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:38:17 PM
Just bowl short at Mo. You'll buy his wicket for about 25
by Stevolution767/6/2017 3:37:32 PM
for the avoidance i doubt was referring to the top edged hook just prior
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 3:37:01 PM
Moe has decided he's the new David Warner. The new Brummie bearded David Warner.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:36:48 PM
2 cover drives from Ali, god like
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:36:19 PM
No Mo, just NO
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 3:35:54 PM
Are we sure it wasn't due to Michael Vaughan? Somehow?
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:35:39 PM
Looks like they're just having a laugh at Beckenham. Adam Rossington into his 7th over. Not sure why Mitch Claydon didnt come into bat next
by Stevolution767/6/2017 3:35:33 PM
Sure KP wil grace us with that gem later
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:35:28 PM
People congratulating Root but really its all been down to KP for turning up and providing a presence
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:34:30 PM
Well you called it now Dez
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:33:27 PM
There you go, glad i bit my tongue when you all did the Root raffle earlier, i predicted he wouldn't fall short today
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 3:32:41 PM
I gave up at 50 Nick
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:32:29 PM
Moe off the mark. At last.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:32:04 PM
Cream shirt, white jumper. Awful. Looks like an 80 year old who has given up caring what he looks like
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:31:51 PM
Buttler would have got in in 34 balls
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:30:49 PM
Sadly we probably need him to go onto 150 now.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:30:38 PM
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:30:15 PM
And I can breathe, well done Joe!
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:30:10 PM
(And no, it's not a player from Derbyshire.)
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:28:20 PM
Duckett wicket, do tell me more
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:28:10 PM
The ECB have released a new manifesto: just two words. The second is 'Durham', the first is censored by this blog.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:28:03 PM
@CIvanderP Its ECB mandated, Screw Durham and their production line of talent!
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:27:50 PM

by ESPNcricinfo Live7/6/2017 3:27:41 PM
as if Durham didnt have enough to contend with - it seems cricinfo have decided Derbyshire won today, and have given them 22 points in the points table (or the points per game below implies that anyway). Is this a mistake, or are the ECB really clamping down again?
by CIvanderP7/6/2017 3:27:10 PM
We all win.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:27:09 PM
Never considered what would happen if he made a Ton, still time

by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:26:12 PM
Need to get a gif made up of George Dobell saying it is a five day game?
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:25:03 PM
Root getting frustrated... uh-oh.

That isn't going to help Burns conversion rate, speaking of conversion rate Root is now 97
