Doesn't Nick mean that Cook filled in as captain at one point and scored a ton there too?
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:49:28 PM
Wow a ball turned at Lords!
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:49:10 PM
@StaggerBreaths The ICC don't care, we talk about it every year and nothing happens what amuses me is Graves wants 4 day Cricket. Needs to have a word with Root when England are also going at 12.5 overs tomorrow
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:49:06 PM
Might be unique stat Nick
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:48:28 PM
@Nick What don't you get about 'first game as captain'...lol
by Dave Knibb7/6/2017 3:47:47 PM
Yes 100 on debut as player and then again as captain
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:47:05 PM
Five'll work. I think anything over one'll probably work.
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:46:59 PM
@LawrencePayne Cook might have done it twice, because his first match as Captain wasn't is first match as full time captain but he did get a hundred in the first Test in India in 2012 didn't he?
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:46:24 PM
i suggested 5 per over earlier what you think?

I'm agreeing with Vaughan now... Talking about run penalties for slow over rates. -_-
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:45:48 PM
I don't mind Mo attacking the spinners. It's when he takes on the short ball in test cricket that annoys me.
by dez dezzy7/6/2017 3:39:58 PM
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
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
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
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:20:21 PM
Burns earned a cold beer or 2

by ESPNcricinfo Live7/6/2017 3:18:05 PM
im not breathing till he gets past the 150 balls faced
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:17:59 PM
Root almost up to my figure of 90...
by StaggerBreaths7/6/2017 3:16:13 PM
Will be exciting if he plays like he did for Worcs 36 off 18
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:14:22 PM
That is why Stokes isn't England's third best batsmen, he has the most talent and a very simple technique but he is prone to overaggressive. No problem Bairstow in nex...wait no
by nickcricket7/6/2017 3:10:31 PM
Stokes throws it away
by Lawrence Payne7/6/2017 3:09:21 PM
@LawrencePayne Yep can regroup while they are hopeless at T20, then they might have Ballance back for the next game at Scarborough. Not an easy one, Essex. Finds sofa to hid behind
