#8713

Poms 6-357

Woakes 120*, S Curran 22*, Bairstow 93


#8714

Not saying he shouldn’t have been allowed to play given the time taken for the matter to reach court. In saying that I don’t think it would have been the right to allow him to play in the Ashes. As a cricket fan the series clearly missed him but it was so soon after the incident that it would have been wrong to select him. I also wonder if he would have received a visa.


#8715

For mine he should of played. Not that it would of made a big difference to the overall result though


#8716

Except Stokes missed nearly six months including the Ashes - Keep on making it up.


#8717

India going full Essington. What’s new.


#8718

Good to see Steve Smith back to where he belongs at the top of the test batting rankings!


#8719

So Ben Stokes gets off - not guilty
Have to say I’m quite surprised


#8720

Yeah, me too. The video looked quite damning but the jury must have found that he was put in a position where it was necessary to use such force.


#8721

I’m not, celebrity, claims of self-defence (even though went on the attack) and standing up to bullies against LGBT persons. Potent mix to see him get off.


#8722

3rd test. Eng V India
India batting 2/69 23 over Kohli just in to bat


#8723

Woakes get pujara before lunch


#8724

Miandad hasn’t aged a bit!


#8725

So much so that Dennis Lillee kicked the photo.


#8726

England now 3 - 62 chasing 521. India doing really well this first session.


#8727

4 - 62 now


#8728

Buttler dropped by Pant. Indian seamers really bowling good lines. England have dropped 15 catches thus far in this Test series. Some absolute sodas behind the wicket too.


#8729

If nothing else Kohli has exorcised his English demons.


#8730

England take it to a fifth with India needing just the one wicket. Meanwhile…

“Tickets for day five of the third Specsavers Test match between England and India are available from £10 for adults.

Junior prices start from £5 with Under 21 tickets in the William Clarke stand on sale for £9. “

How can they charge people to attend? Unbelievable!


#8731

Very poor decision by the ECB.


#8732

No suprise, they are all about making money

Well done to India, they have played great all test
