I was at that game England v West Indies The Oval 1991
All the crowd that had radios were in stitches and the rest didn't have a clue what was happening.

This is a Classic!

I cannot watch cricket on Sky as the commentators annoy me so much, so I turn the sound off and listen to Test Match Special on the radio. Plenty of real hilarity going on and worth it if only for Boycs being his usual bumptious and outspoken self! And Henry Blofeld is a one-off.

Only trouble is they have added Swan to the team. What a disgrace to English cricket that man is. Couldn't hack it in Aus during the last tour (when we were whitewashed) so said "bugger it , I'm off". What a hero...NOT!

Think the one dayers are nicely matched.

During one of the tests I'm sure the commentator naming our bowling attack said Anderson strokes broad wood

You won't see stokes opening, you can't expect him to bowl a long spell, potentially taking the final wicket, then leg it off and be ready to bat in a few minutes.

I wouldn't mind seeing hayles opening in uae but I think he'd struggle with the saffas. Trying moeen as an opener makes it easier to get rashid into the team so I suspect that's the route they'll take.

that was a good and true article ken, not sure on moeen opening, I would take the same route of Australia and give ben stokes a go at opening, perfert place to test him over the next two series, he wont feel under threat because if it don't work he can drop back down the order, this way they can drop lyth and blood someone in at no3 ready for a move up at a later date if stokes don't work out.

I doubt this will happen

So we won this series and that is something to be positive about. However, I think This article has it spot on.

Imagine spending around 500 quid watching the last two days live. And having my father in law for company yesterday, who makes boycott seem like a positive, optimistic glass half full kind of character

Broads due a new high score, wonder if he can beat his 160 odd between the showers

I really must stop predicting a result. A draw...as if!

IMO 20/20 cricket sounded the death knell for proper cricket. I hate it with a passion.

I think this series is marking the end of test cricket as we know it, and I for one are very sad.
A test is a test of all parts of a sportspersons mental and physical abilities, this seem to have been lost now, when one team gets the upperhand , that's it, game over , no steel and backbone anymore. they might aswell go ahead with the idea 90 overs each per innings and be done with it

Has the look of a draw, doesn't it. I think Cooke/England was seduced by another green tinged wicket, but the Oval definitely is not Trent Bridge! Was feeling sorry for Jimmy A. but perhaps he is glad he is still unfit.

After that morning I half expect to see them bat most of tomorrow then see if England collapse or stick it out for draw saturday

Ralph, the ballot opens today to get tickets for next year's oval test (final match vs pak) I usually get lucky with tickets this way, I probably won't bother for that one tho
