    Ah your a keeper. Had to stop keeping (bad back). What format games do you play I used to find anything over 20 would kill my back and knees if I was keeping

    Hahaha 45 overs we play...I'm usually fine to be honest,first game i'll get a few bruises but nothing major. We've gota lad who's been clocked at like 82mph before (usually 75-80) and I hate keeping to him,kills my hands even with wet inners :(

    Root really is a machine at the moment, this looks to be heading for a draw again, another really flat pitch
    As for Hampshire, its been an ok start to the season, problem is that we can't really bowl and therefore we are missing Bird a lot. Hopefully Bird will be back and Vince will get some form and then we might cause Notts a few problems this week, even if their top order have started this season very well

    Root and Ballance both have the potential to score a huge amount of runs

    I'm sure we will, will probably won't get them all out for ages and then end up getting all out on the last day chasing runs and lose the match

    Nearly choked when I saw Cook and Trott get a century partnership, about bloody time.

    So Trott retires from international cricket after a very poor series in the West Indies, makes me wonder why he ever returned, could have given the place to some one else who deserved a place.

    Very poor series from England overall, one they really should have won against a inexperienced West Indies who were also missing some key players, selectors defo need a rethink.

    Without wanting to sound like Piers Morgan, Bring Back KP

    There were a couple of positives though, Cook back on form with the bat, Anderson on the final day of the second test and Root looking more and more like the Englands future captain

    Why is Morgan here in India? Isn't he your captain?

    Cook is captain for Test matches, Morgan is ODI captain, although he had an awful World Cup
