  1. yes, this was not a non sequitur
  2. Saw him 3-4 weeks ago. He's doing ok. He could stand and walk a bit. His communication is improving. Long process though.
  3. walked across waterloo bridge yesterday and there was a fella just spent the whole time going back and forth on a skateboard in a half pipe. Not sure what that's really achieving, though he appeared to need the practice.

    It's not cheating. The batsman backs up as the ball is released in anticipation of a run. He can be run out as a result of that risk by a ball being hit back to the bowler to the fielder/whatever. Thats the downside risk of backing up The bowler steps into his action to bowl the ball and the batsman assumes the ball to be released and so backs up. He isnt trying to gain an unfair advantage. The bowler is by pretending to bowl the ball but not releasing it though.

    Issue with that list is that they're all all rounders of sorts, albeit Bairstow & Buttler are now playing as specialist batsmen. From 5 down to 10 it's all rounders. There's too lads in there who would look brilliant batting at 7 IMO. There's the issue that there is nobody else I guess, but England feel like a team with 5 or 6 number 7 batters. I think that can work if your 1-4 are rock solid. But like you say, the openers have been an issue for years now and Root's form isnt great

    Unreal dismissal that Looking at the bounce here and that that stokes got, England have picked the wrong attack.

    Yes, that's what I would do. Somewhat unfairly but I'd have another bowler in

    Think Curran is in the same bracket as Stokes. Think ultimately a side with Curran at 9 and Rashid at 10 can probably pick another bowler. Reckon the answer is to drop one of the keepers TBH.

    Not really about pace my argument, it's more numbers of overs. I like Stokes as a bowler, but I'd have him as a change bowler and I wouldn't want him bowling 20 plus overs a day. Feels like this attack lacks a bit of balance unless it is a turning pitch. Theres a bit of irony in this as normally it would give you balance, but I think it is mostly because there are alot of multi faceted players in the side (Ali, all 3 keepers, Curran, Rashid, Stokes). Root could make that list,.

    He looks like a good option in a 4 seamer attack to me. Granted he might get better but I'm puzzled by an England side that has only Anderson as an out and out quick anywhere outside of Asia.

    Yeah, the numbers breakdown would be hard to have with any confidence and it would be a single issue campaign almost. Plus you'd get accused of disrespecting democracy etc etc

    EU Referendum

    Do you reckon there is an electable pro another referendum play here? I'm torn on it, because it seems a no brainer to me, but then it is what I want.

    Dhoni looked like he was about to pass out towards the end
  17. Think he was injured. But he was missing out on the 18 early season when he was fit.
  18. I knew that the mig was slow off his line. But I didnt realise how slow until yesterday. Number of times I found myself shouting "where's the f***ing keeper" at the TV...
  19. Whilst you are right, I'd have kept him to cover Robbo as much as anything else.
  20. I went to see him yesterday. He's moving forward, making progress.
  21. They're fruit too. Adds to the comedy. I don't think I like okra, but it is possible that I havent had it cooked well.

    Watched some of the game yesterday and they were doing detailed analysis of Starc's grip and wrist position to explain why for nearly 12 months he's not moved it off the straight. They were claiming it was something he was doing with his thumb. Presumably that something was "not rubbing it with sandpaper" © Phil Blun Dell
  23. I'd target Fabinho if I were them. There's evidence of him struggling when teams get about us (Arsenal away, Wolves away, early arsenal at home). I'd not play him on that basis TBH.
