Any chance of terrestrial TV showing at least the daily highlights for us peasants who refuse/cannot afford to cough up ridiculous amounts to satellite stations? No, probably not.
Mobdro. It's free. Removed
WHY ARE COMMENTS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THE BBC STORY ON THE LONDON MARATHON. I WONDER. WHAT A SICK INCENTIVE FOR RUNNERS THAT THEY MUST BE VAXXED UP TO ENTER. DOES THAT MEAN THE 750 000 SPECTATORS WILL BE CHECKED FOR THE MARK OF THE BEAST ALSO ?. THIS COMMENT WILL PROBABLY BE PULLED AS I DONT AGREE WITH THE GOVT RUN BBC, BUT HEY, STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED. HAVENT THEY ?? Removed

Your village called.

It misses you.
I cannot believe that anyone is serious about including Joe Clarke in the England squad; apart from having very few statistics to back up a claim, he showed himself in the Alex Hepburn rape trials to be an immature young misogynist who could not be trusted to behave decently off the pitch. Removed

Hmm, 17 first class hundreds. More than Pope, Sibley, Crawley, Lawrence and Buttler, and he is 24 years old- and he is good at the white ball stuff as well. I agree with you I don't think he ever will be picked for England, and maybe he shouldn't be- that is a moral decision the powers that be have to make. But to suggest he wouldn't be a candidate if it wasn't for his baggage is a nonsense.

Who says the Indian surfaces will be spin friendly? Surely the recent series against Australia has taught us that they have a very potent seam bowling line up too!
John. Please don't get into an intelligent chat with FFC2. You'll lose your hair. He gets his info from Ceefax. Removed

Hahaha. Pillock.
typical bbc - all sport articles should be open to hys.... Removed
This rotation plan is absolutely ridiculous. It’s just yet another example of that complete moron Ed Smith trying to be too clever (remember the Mason Crane selection in Australia). If in this fool’s mind Foakes is the number 3 wicket (he’s wrong btw) a keeper how can it be justified to pick him for the second test against the best team in the world away from home. Ed Smith makes me hate England. Removed

Why is it Buttler always picked in front of Foakes ,hints of favouritism.How can Silbley be picked he is useless against spin.
Sibley is shite Removed
Morning
Bit more Galle-like weather. Could be an important toss to lose but let’s see. Hope Jimmy can carry on where Broad left off.
I would have made two more changes - Virdi for Bess and Foakes for Curran, possibly Stone for Wood too. Anyway, enjoy:)

Great catch, appalling shot. Not thought process from first game. Awful. Removed
Another dreadful shot. Why you defending out there? Removed

Listened early on then back again moments a go and heard Jimmy has taken the Wickets and SL have got out because of who he is.

Let you guess which Yorkshire pundit said that , what silly comment Jimmy git his wickets because if bowling in the right place.

Steady innings by SL and hope for those watching that Bess and Leach have found their bowling line well.
