    Well, first test match of the summer begins today with Pakistan the visitors to Lords. 20/20 specialist/walking wicket Joss Buttler is drafted back into the side in place of flashy failure James Vince. The Rootmiester General moves up to 3 and 14 year old Dom Bess surprisingly given the chance as England's premier spin bowler. Still start as favourites against a rebuilding Pakistan side who struggled to put away the Irish.

    Top wicket taker - Anderson, Abbas
    Top run scorer - Stoneman, Sohail
    Series prediction - Eng 2 Pak 0

    First day of the first test match of the summer and already an England collapse. Some things never change.

    "Top run scorer - Stoneman"

    13 runs over 2 innings, looked like he wanted to be anywhere else but Lords and papped out the team in place of Jennings. Top tipping from yours truly.

    Awful test from England. These collapses, especially the top order ones, are becoming far too frequent. I don't know why Root's captaincy isn't coming under more scrutiny.

    One of England's problems is that they play so much one day cricket that their batsmen don't have the patience to bat properly in test matches. Hence all these collapses.

    Tufnell and Vaughan were saying summit similar on’t wireless the other night. If it’s affecting his batting which it looks like it is, then he must step down.

    As a top order they are shocking. Geoffrey used to say that your top 5 should be scoring centuries every five tests. The players just aren’t being coached to build innings any more. It’s pretty poor.

    A bit better today though. The visitors’ top order oot before the stovies are served, and lovely bowling by Woakes.

    Looks like we will have to wait until tomorrow for the England collapse.

    Surprised that no-one has posted about Scotland beating England today in the 50-over version. Will certainly enjoy going to work on Tuesday as my boss is a huge cricket and rugby fan which makes it a double whammy - probably not the best time to ask for a pay rise).

    Now this is Proper Mannies Cricket, nae Hobart Hurricanes verses Birmingham Bears or any o that p!sh. Proper 5 Test series, England v India, proper grounds n all (apart fae the Rose Bowl 4th test).

    India traditionally do not travel well but this is a very different side and a very different captain in Virat Kohli. His record in England is pretty poor but I expect that will change in the next couple of months. As ever, their batsmen are better than their bowlers but Ashwin is the top spinner on either side by a long way.

    Intriguing series for England Coach and Captain. Win and everything is peachy. Lose and I can see both punted and Morgan brought in to see if he can work wonders with the red ball team in the same way he has transformed the ODI side (apart fae getting their @rse handed to them by Scotland obvs )

    Collapses have been all too common and 134-5 seems to be a position England find themselves in far too often. Stokes being back adds some balance to the team and the controversial selection of Rashid, who no longer wants to play County Cricket, puts a lot of pressure on the money grabbing leg spinner.

    Teams:-

    England XI: Alastair Cook, Jennings, Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Bairstow, Stokes, Buttler, Curran, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.

    India XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma.

    Score Prediction - England 1, India 3
    Top Scorer - Eng - Bairstow, Ind - Kohli
    Top Wicket taker - Eng - Anderson, Ind - Ashwin

    England win toss and will bat.

    I was being transported along Shawlands Road when Stoke bagged the Indian captain. My shout of “yaaaaas!” was probably ill-advised given Govanhill has many many people from the sub-continent as residents.

    I think I got away with it, though.
