    Not sure why Archer is trying to be a fast medium his bouncer is a lot less effective than last year already. If he isnt playing to be a fast bowler we're better of playing curran he at least swings the ball.

    Here we go then, time for the final innings. 277 to win. Unlikely, but you never know, come on England!

    Good solid session thought burns was unlucky as well ball looked to be going higher than drs has to me. After lunch we will see if we can have a good go at this.

    There was absolutely nothing Pope could've done about that delivery, you can't play that

    That spell after lunch on day 1 where Root got it all wrong looks like the defining passage of this game
    Oh how I wish we needed 70 less runs right now

    What a load of crap

    Hawkeye has got that wrong

    It had clearly turned way more than that as it showed on the slow mo replays

    Cant have that at all

    That Kent partnership is one you want to see played until it's over, then of course Sussex start 0-1

    I don’t want to accuse the back up batting in england of being terrible...
    But Hampshire have the following bowlers unavailable: Edwards, Abbott, Barker, Lyon, Dawson, Stevenson and Dale
    And still have Surrey 36-5 :joy:

    I really like the look of crawley imagine he will move up to open at some point but last test and this hes doing a great job at 3.

    Yep, this partnership has been fantastic to see, in such a strong position now as a result as you say. Hopefully bat for a while longer, bat once to win the game.

    With some rain scheduled for day 4 and 5 you’d think if we can get to 450 we’ve won the series
    Going to be another tough morning for the lads here, with a long tail we could easily let Pakistan get some momentum

    Buttler gets his 100! Great knock! This partnership has been phenomenal.

    Thank ❤️❤️❤️❤️ for the review when he was given out on 99 :sweat_smile:
