Well played Moeen Ali.

Who would we all like to see replace Cook as skipper ?

I don't enjoy tailenders get career best scores (repeatedly) against us.

Rain is Cook's best hope for escape. What a shower.

Yep, seems quite a few records were broken yesterday.

Maybe they will get their act together today

Now this is a little more promising.

Bit disappointed that (a) Cook didn't enforce the follow-on, and (b) didn't declare an over or two earlier to get India back in before tea. Still, they have four full sessions to knock India over, and a world-record 4th innings run chase seems somewhat unlikely from India - they'll surely be trying to bat through for a draw now?

Well tomorrow will tell if Cook got the declaration correct or not, but I can see the thinking to rest Jimmy & Broad, particularly as the latter is carrying a niggle.

Overall, a much improved performance over the 4 days so far, but we need to finish it or it means nothing. And Jimmy might have to sit out the next few for being a naughty boy.

Hopefully I can't see them being able to hold on to six wickets but with England you never know. It'd be nice if Jordan would contribute a bit.

It's a shame that Jordan is so rubbish. Has been the only negative over the last 4 days.

Who's this team pretending to be England ? The only potential spanner in the works is the possible 4 test ban for Jimmy

Anybody getting KP's mud slinging fest, sorry, autobiography ? Seems to have thrown the cat among the pigeons somewhat.

If anyone's interested, England are playing Sri Lanka in the first of a 7 ODI series this morning.

A Stream

Wed 3 Dec - 3rd ODI (Day/Night), MRPICS, Hambantota*

Thanks for that Oink. Who knew Moeen Ali could play like this ? Now if we could only replace Cook with Hales, we might have a reasonable pair of openers.
