He had roughly a gazillion LBW shouts. I suspect any other nationality of umpire would have given him long ago.

There is going to be a TMS vs. Tailenders Podcast match. Details to be announced at 12:15 today. I still remember Yohan Blake's run up from the boundary last year. :lol:

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I must admit to having missed that! The only thing I know about it was that it had somebody from Love Island on. :roll:

Game is going to be at Derby this year. Quite tempted to try for tickets.

EDIT: May as well, hat in the ring!

Good news: Kohli’s been spun out.

Bad news: Kuldeep and Chahal, again... :(

Our innings should be very interesting. Everyone should watch Kohli's dismissal for two reasons: 1) the ball that got him was dynamite, 2) Kohli's reaction. If gif'd it would get a lot of use.

We should be able to restrict India to <300 here, these are their last two batsmen of any real quality.

I can see England being spun out for 150 or so. :?

Kohli has an immensely giffable face. Almost makes up for him being a twat. Not quite.

Is he really a twat though?

I don’t know him personally. Maybe he just does a good job of oozing twattishness.

He’s actually not bad in white ball, he says jinxing Vince incurably.

Meanwhile, in the Lions game, Prithvi Shaw is a terrifying thought.

I guess you're not au fait with the sheer power of the gr mockers? He's doomed now.

If it’s up with the power of Guardian liveblog mockers, that’s his career over.

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED.

Damn that was close. Threatening to increase his average there.

Time for Suresh Raina to reveal why he’s been picked. Not sure it’s his batting.
