    Both Rooooooot and Chef out in two balls.

    From the bbc:-

    So Alastair Cook finishes with 33 Test centuries, 12,472 runs at an average of 45.35.

    He batted for 37,308 mins or 621 hours 48 minutes.

    He hit 1,442 fours, plus three all-run fours, 11 sixes and four fives (including the one that took him to his hundred today).

    He faced 20,038 dot balls, scored 3803 singles, 980 twos and 281 threes.

    I presume it's because he's got chocolate salty balls.

    Rashid spins it roon a corner to bowl Rahul. What a delivery.

    Then he and Moeen combine to pull Pant's pants doon.

    330-7 off 84. India still 134 short, with Jadeja and Sharma at the crease. Minimum of 23 overs left.

    **** 20-20 and ODI, this is Proper Mannies'.

    Afternoon Vintage, Afternoon Everyone.

    Apologies for not bumping this up sooner all you Proper Mannies Cricket fans. First test match of the season for England and they've started off typically poorly. Windies currently lead England by 378 runs with 4 wickets remaining after England collapsed yesterday for 77. Experimental look to this side with Broad dropped for the dwarf Sam Curran, twa spinners picked, new no 3 and new opening pair.

    Windies looked good so far which is always nice. I don't mind them or Pakistan winning the odd test match, good for the game.

    No wickets today (into the final session)...Windies lead almost 700. Think England might struggle to win this one.

    HAHA.

    I heard all the usual suspects being interviewed over the last few days before it started, to a man all predicted a 3-0 whitewash.

    The arrogance was astounding.

    Hmm, the usual suspects have Engerland winning this already.

    I'm happy for them to have their day in the sun pumping a weak Aussie side only to get Battered by the Kiwis at the weekend in the final

    124/0. 100 to win in 32 overs. Bairstow's hurt his ankle, it seems. He warmed up in front of us at Headingley v Sri Lanka. He's a well-built loon. Muscles on his spit by the look of him. And a ginge.

    TBF, England have played hard. Getting beat 3 out of 7 basically meant every game from then on was a knockout cup tie. To have then beat India, NZ, Australia in a row under pressure is pretty good.

    To me, it is mostly down to the return of Jason Roy from injury.

    Roy’s recovery has been a major factor. He’s talismanic, and even his occasional mis-hits are performed with such power that he gets away with it.

    The bowling, though, in the last three ***** games has been world class, yesterday in ripping the heart out of the top order (fuuck YOU, Warner), and in limiting the potential for India’s classy batsmen to post a big total.

    Sunday will be tough, but I think England will see it through. And it’s on cooncil TV. I should be grateful to Sky for this concession, but they, and their sleazy, politically-interfering owners can stop a full-powered Ben Stokes drive ‘amidships’ at short leg as far as I’m concerned.

    EDIT: no idea why ***** has been censored. ‘V I T A L’ isna a tw@tting b@starding fuucker of a profanity these days, is it?

    Still not convinced this is the right place to discuss the one day game.

    Utterly correct. Standards are slipping. Next they will be discussing 20/20
