Oh Cooky. :wub:

How we will miss thee.

Rooty Tooty.

Would love these two to both end not out.

They should just go mad now until tea. They've got around 18 overs, crack on and get another 70-80 and then declare.

What a player.

Hope he gets a bowl.

Why are we still batting? Seems like it's not the first time I've asked this in recent times either.

Please stop trying to find negatives :lol: The series is won. They're having a slog, the declaration will probably come after the next wicket and India will still have to bat for 100 overs on a fifth day wicket with nothing really to play for.

Edit: as if on cue.

Did Ed Smith call up Rashid just to piss off Yorkshire?

He’s a confidence player, in the side as first spinner, and Moe had about ten overs under his belt before he got a bowl.

Granted, pissing off Yorkshire is always fun.

Also - I realised fairly recently that I need to change the thread title. If India set a record here (which a small part of me actually wants them to), I can just replace the final word with "India".

We've just got to get Pant out and then we could easily finish them.

And that’s why he’s in the team.

:lol:

Rashid is in the team because a) he is one of our best spinners and b) to get him used to test match cricket before the SL and WI tours where he will definitely be bowling a lot. This is basically a warm up for those series.

Also in terms of the wickets he does take, there's very much a quality over quantity, i.e he tends to take big wickets at key times. Kohli a few times this series, Pant and Rahul in this match etc. He goes for runs but gets wickets.

Quite happy for Rahul because he is such a quality player.

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