Moeen doesn’t like being the one spinner though. I don’t actually like Broaderson playing at the same time in the Windies, but I’m sure they will.

Some lousy umpiring this game.

Me neither. They should though, seeing as Leach can hold up an end and Moeen can't.

I actually do think they should play both Leach and Moeen in the Windies with Broaderson and Stokes as the seamers.

Foakes at 8 is insane.

Foakes should be batting above Moeen IMO.

From 235-3 this is kind of a disappointing position to be in, but then again we can't rely on the middle-order and the tail to score runs every time, this time they haven't really had to.

Is it just me remembering poorly but do England have a habit of dropping catches in dead rubbbers? Sure I remember comments previously in the media that they'd never be a great team if they take their foot of the gas for meaningless games.

Unsure. The catching, Jennings aside, has definitely been poor though. Regulation stuff, really.

Abject shot selection, poor decision making.

The bowlers are going to have to have a worldy to defend such a low total and the fielders are going to have to take every possible chance.

I just don't get why so many of them insisted at trying to hit the ball in the air, most do not have the strength or technique to clear the ropes or the in field. Just try to hit 4s along the ground, at least they could have picked up 2s if it didn't breach the boundary rope.

This Sri Lankan Test is hilarious. Also who knew Jos would be the reliable one?

I reckon that's Sri Lanka done with that run out, my bet is all out for less than 230.

Going from 50 without loss to 90 all out is pretty impressive.

ECB are on a roll. They've amended their England qualification period from 7 years to 3. Jofra Archer will now be eligible to play in the World Cup and The Ashes.
