England v Sri Lanka 2016
#21
England's game starts Friday. Warks game finishes Wednesday. Why does he have to leave the game tonight? Tomorrow night would have enabled him to drive up Wednesday leaving Thursday free for practice etc

Period of rest and recovery I guess.

Don't get me going on that one..... pay good money to watch a test and then find out you may as well have gone to the theatre and watched a farce.

Every year, whether it be Edgbaston or elsewhere, I try to attend a few days of test cricket. Due to ticket prices, this is becoming more difficult. I will however keep my money in my pocket for Pakistan series... sadly for me the 'bond' between the game and the spectator has been broken for that series. I'm not sure if it will return...... too many questions would surround a great England performance.... was it allowed to happen?

Shame really..... perception leads me to keep my money in my pocket.

Woakes is going to be a big loss, he is tearing through the Durham line up here.

Would that be Google Chrome Woakes?

If the pitch takes a bit of spin by the last day, Poysden for Woakes could be an inspired substitution.

And if that happens I would be a bit miffed if I was a Durham supporter.

As Woakes has just taken a 5 for, not sure Durham fans can have too many complaints.

Interesting comments on the fifth day.....

It seems like Chris Woakes will definitely play so his being pulled out of the Durham game hasn't been a waste of time:

Good luck to him!

Congratulations to Alastair Cook on 10,000 Test runs by the way. Not only the youngest to that total..... he's been facing the new ball often in Northern Hemisphere conditions. He also has an excellent record elsewhere.

Yes great effort but only the 9th fastest in history. Brian Lara is the fastest doing it in 111 matches and 195 innings.

Two Bears top the list.

Indeed.... but whilst not always the greatest fan of Mr Cook... I have to say that as an opening batsmen playing a lot of test cricket in the northern hemisphere against the new ball, it is an excellent achievement. I believe that only one other opener has done it?

I suspect these sort of records may last a long time with, I fear, test cricket becoming truncated in duration over the next few years in a desperate bid to save it.

Or eventually wiped out in favour of the T20slog, before you get prickly with that remark I was talking to Kabir Ali on Saturday who, without any prompting referred to the red ball game as'proper'cricket as do all players, whatever level they are at,have you
