    Proper Mannies Cricket

    OK ok, it's not the Ashes but it's still good to be able to watch some cricket in the mornings. England struggling a bit in India just now but I suppose that's no surprise against the No1 ranked side in the world in their own conditions. Competitive in the first test but were pretty much outplayed in tests 2 and 3. 400 in the first innings in the 4th test has been an improvement (thanks to a former South Africa under 19's captain making his debut) but they are really suffering for their lack of a decent spinner.

    Yas. Proper mannies' cricket back the morn, at Lord's.

    A solid-looking England line-up with a one hoor of a length of batting capability.

    Even highlights on Channel 5 every night. **** your arse with a broken Whitbread bottle Murdoch you coffin-dodging Fascist tossbag.

    And a Boycott Bingo card too. Yas.

    Should be a good test, shame I won't even be able to watch highlights here. England's batting does look good with Ballance, Root and Bairstow 3-5. See they have a couple of spinners as well, first time in a while. du Plessis absent for S.A.? Rabada will be exciting to watch.

    Morning Vintage, Morning Everyone.

    England win the toss and bat first.

    Eng - Cook, Jennings, Balance, Root (c), Bairstow (wk), Stokes, Ali, Dawson, Broad, Wood, Anderson

    Saffers - Elgar (c), Kuhn, Amla, Duminy, Bavuma, du Bruyn, de Kock (w), Philander, Maharaj, Rabada, Morkel

    Looking forward to this. Fancy England might win the series quite comfortably tho, this isn't the greatest SA side.

    ENG Top Scorer - Rooooooooooooot
    ENG Top Wicket taker - Anderson (if he lasts)

    SA Top Scorer - de Kock
    SA Top Wicket taker - Rabada

    You're only getting 2/1 the draw. Bookies know their weather forecast.

    Nice Richie tribute, min. Good work.

    Jennings described as having "an anxious prod" - the Ibrox Finance Director onfield?

    Chef gone. 14-1.

    Nae bother min

    59-3, typically useless start fae England.

    According to TMS:- "Over the last three years, in 64 innings, England have lost their third wicket at 55 or lower 23 times." That's absolutely appalling cricket.

    Then Bairstow, plumb apparently. I wonder whatever happened to hewasplummin?

    117-4. Stokes just planted a 6.

    Still disna sound comfortable, though.

    Stokes gone for 56, 190-5. Much needed century partnership for England.

    Finally a wicket for Rabada.

    Roooooooooot on 83*

    That's a captain's innings from Root.
    How many times can he do that to save face for the openers before he gets dragged down to their level though?

    Third Test on.

    England batting on a slightly-damp, but drying Oval, aboot 50-1 - Jennings out for his third duck innings.

    Boycs in great form on TMS, "As well as digging into Keaton Jennings' cricket technique, Geoffrey Boycott on TMS is having a grump about "these modern coffee cups with lids on them". Apparently, Boycs - whose name, lest we forget, is an anagram of Grotty Coffee Boy - prefers an old-fashioned china cup."

    88MPH inswinging yorker kittles Malan out.

    Sounds just like Waqar Younis or Wasim Akram in 1991.

    Unplayable when it's bowled at that pace.

    Must watch on C5 highlights when I get back from tonight's game.

    121-4 Cook 55*.

    Sick of these one sided test matches tbh. I want England to win but ffs it's dull as sh!te for folk with day 3, 4, or 5 tickets if the result is pretty much known. Nae fight in these batting (unts. I blame 20/20.

    Never a truer word typed. Even Amla looked like a baseball striker in his two dismissals by Toblerone.

    20/20 is horsesh!t & ruining test matches. If you can't win one, you should try not to lose it but they just all go into big bash mode. They should be forced to watch endless re runs of Michael Atherton leaving a ball

    That sounds like quality Saturday Night viewing to me tbf.

    Deal Elgar waltzes his way to a century, well played sir. Posh sounding bowling discovery Toby Roland-Jones takes 2 wickets in 2 balls to inch England to victory. Saffers 213 for 7, 67 overs remaining

    Of course, for 40 minutes, until Allan Donald was knackered, this was the most attritional, gladitorial sporting telly of 1998 whn it was still on BBC (**** off Murdoch).
