Was out all day. By all accounts it was a pretty good game!
Agreed. If this is Australia's true level then they should let them go back to cheating just for the sake of an even contest.
Yeah Trent Bridge is a flat pitch and the boundaries have difficult dimensions to defend. It's the same ground where England scored 400+ against Pakistan and they were warned for a flat test match pitch too iirc
Yeah, on TMS they were talking about how maybe England should have selected a second spinner as what can another seamer offer after you've tried Anderson, Broad and Stokes.England have been crying out for a left arm pace bowler for years; desperately needed variation, four right arm seamers is asking for trouble. We've always looked better equipped; Sidebottom and Illot in previous years always did well, so hopefully Curran can get some good experience against a decent Indian batting line-up.
I've done my work for today, Kohli is much harder work.
Curran has got a 5ver, has bowled well. Happy for him, only his 2nd test i think.
With him being so critical in the first innings, I think the psychological impact of whether he's still in or out would have a huge impact on the match.
There's a fair amount of cloud and humidity here in Brum (same forecast for tomorrow); so perfect for the English bowlers. But Kohli has the ability to score the runs himself...
