As much as I love Broad, I wouldn't allow him within a hundred miles of the captaincy. He'd burn through reviews in the first five minutes.

That's the problem though, there really isn't any obvious candidates. Buttler is doing too many jobs already, as is Stokes. Bowlers shouldn't be captains in my opinion so that only leaves a bunch of batsmen who've only been around 5 minutes. If I could choose anyone then I'd get Morgan back in red ball cricket and give it him.

Unequivocally yes. Give the captaincy to the person with the best cricketing brain. Stokes has enough on his plate, so Buttler or perhaps Burns as he captained Surrey to the championship title.

Oh my god! I'm in Salisbury at the moment and Blowers is doing a book signing in Waterstones in 30 minutes!

I don’t really ‘do’ the relationship thread, but sorry to read about the divorce Mini E. :( Hope cricket, among other things, helps keep your mind occupied.

Thank you mate. I don't either, but it seemed the apt thread to tell someone! I'm not sleeping too much so some night cricket involving England being 78-9 before lunch might be quite a nice distraction.

Indeed I did!

Got my copy of his book signed and snapped a couple of pics and had a very brief chat. He lol'd when I greeted him with "My dear old thing!".

I'll get some pics up soon.

If playing two rfm seamers actually works (relatively speaking) I will scream.

To be fair I’d hardly say it’s ‘worked’ so far.

Lots of work to do though. Shame nobody else has made any runs.

Yasir Shah, as in the leg-spinner Yasir Shah, has scored a test century against the Aussies today! :o

Guy was already one of my favourite non-England cricketers.

For once I’m glad that I don’t watch cricket much...
