    Let's just hope Cook and Bell get to the end of play, first. :lol:

    Anyone play today? My team won by 9 wickets in a rather one sided game. I got 3-25 whihc isn't bad but I didn't bow nearly as well as I did last week when I only got 1.

    A 50 for Root now as well :)

    About 100 runs now for the partnership between Root and Cook, both playing really well.

    Great century for captain Cook. Hoping he can recapture his form from a few years back.

    I wish Root didn't get out. Another good innings, though.

    Root has been fantastic in this match so far. Good to see Cook getting a century, building on his century against West Indies.

    All this sport today, totally forgot about the IPL. Chennai just took Sharma and Simmons out back to back. Mumbai were doing great, up to then. :open_mouth:

    It's a special innings. England could have an outside chance of winning this.

    Pollard. :open_mouth:

    RT Stokes needs Root's consistency, though.

    Yeah, been a good day for England, gonna draw but England have brought it back really well.

    This is slowly building my confidence for the ashes which is worrying

    We're still going to get absolutely battered by the Aussies, don't get ahead of yourself.

    Can you imagine a middle order of KP-Root-Stokes-Buttler? :weary: :weary: :weary:
