Roy's out was such a shocking decision. Praying his punishment is just a fine.

How can they do both at the same time?

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

Cricket shuffled to More4 while the GP is on.

It’s better than nothing.[/mightynumber9]

Looks like Sky1 are showing it if anyone has basic Sky or NowTV entertainment.

Didn't anyone tell the Aussies that they had a game today? Because none of them turned up.

This was amusing

Remember when some parties were erring about Jofra's inclusion in the squad? I'd say he's cemented himself in the first XI now, arguably he's been the pick of our bowlers and our attack just looks so much stronger with him in there.

I know red ball cricket is a different game entirely but he absolutely has to be in the Ashes squad IMO. Whilst he's known for his limited overs exploits his first-class record is actually very good (Div 2 though).

One boundary in his entire allocation. He truly is Top Jof.

Does anyone else think we should consider opening in the ashes with YJB and Roy?

I've heard worse ideas.

Strongly disagree. Roy is a white ball opener: the white ball swings less. In red ball, surviving the first ten overs is the name of the game, not dominating them. Even people at Surrey say he’s a middle-order player in red ball.

Young Sibley looks alright though. And yes of course they play Jof.
