Rooty doing what he does best!
Scoring runs off pie throwers. Removed

Williamson didn't make a run against Aus and India, then cashes in against Pakistan and the Windies. Doesn't seem to get criciticised for making hay against pie-throwers though. You take them when they're available.

Rubbish comment.

Hardly Root's fault that Sri Lanka don't have a great attack. You can only play what's in front of you.

168* in the 1st innings of the 1st Test match of 2021. Don't care if it's Sri Lanka, 00s Australia, or Geddington 2nds; chanceless innings.
England and Root are doing well. Another day they will do not so well. Sri Lanka used to be better than they are now. Prior to being better, they were even worse. Most things change. Some things never change. Steve Smith is a cheat. Removed

There's still a lot of dislike for poor ol' Rooty isn't there in keyboard warrior land. 6 "fiddys" and 0 "hunjies" down here in the home of cricket illustrate how frustrating he can be but still a batsman we love to see the back of. Anyway - fair play England and 1-0 to you it seems. Off to watch the Ashes holders today at the Gabbatoir - any ideas of some sledging I can give from the stand ?
