3 centuries in 4 innings.

I'm resigned to him getting a recall now. He is one of the ECB's golden boys and they recalled him last year off the back of one solitary century after averaging about 30 for the season. Then he came back for England, guess what, he averaged 20 over the course of his 10 or so innings.

He struggled with the New Zealand and Aussie quicks in English conditions, they really exposed the shortcomings of his technique. What do the ECB think will happen when Rabada, Morkel steam in, and more importantly when Starc, Cummins and Hazlecrack come for him down under?

Literally the only hope we have is either him getting injured or having an absolute nightmare of a season after this round of matches.

Helluva knock from Ben Stokes yesterday.

Also:



Honestly had to check it wasn't the 1st of April. That T20 kit. My word.

Yeah I watched Stokes' a innings yesterday, very impressive. 3 MOTM awards for him in the IPL thus far.

Those kits are hideous.

It's cream and looks really cheap IMO. The last kit looked really smart.

A couple of tremendous articles on Misbah and Younis Khan who are both playing in their final test match.

Could be an interesting Ashes with a load of Aussie players on strike...

Another century for Cook, that's 4 so far this season in all competitions. It bodes well.

Hameed really needs to pull his finger out otherwise he'll be surrendering his place in the test team to Ballance.
