Brilliant cricket again ...Channel 4 serving up a proper feast of a Test match .....

i know it's really both teams playing in such a good sporting manner ..even India's slowing up of the game wasn't overdone where players started to get wound up ... Kholi had it just right ...

having said all of that without Channel 4 spending some money all of this would of gone unseen by so many ...bravo CH4
More adverts than the superbowl! I don't need to see Rylan trying flog used cars to a mixed race couple after every over.

I don't care who flogs used cars to whom - it's paying for me to watch test cricket. :)

What has their race got to do with it?

I think declaration was correct. England have given themselves roughly 100 overs to bowl India out. Our spinners are decent, but inconsistent and had we given India an extra 15 overs Eng would have been vulnerable. We saw what happened in Bang yesterday and what WI did at Leeds a few year ago. Teams are better at big chases and we've got a day to take 9 wickets. If we don't it isn't Root's fault.

No, he's using his brain rather than thinking of things to post which boost a fragile ego like yours. Don't believe what your mother told you, you're not special...
Which of those posts suggests ego? Or fragile? Or special, come to that?

Your pre rehearsed insult impresses nobody. Apart from perhaps, as you would maturely say, “your mum”. She must be well proud of you.

because they’d rather spend £50M on diversity and ignore their core audience

What was the strategy after tea? Just to poke around and kill time?

It was the most confounding and dumbest thing I have ever seen in cricket at any level.
splendidsparrow, you are a bird brain. Great game final day will be enthralling. Removed

For those of you new to Test cricket - now back on normal TV at last - it should be pointed out that Maksi is related to Mr Root (his 4th cousin, three times removed, via deed poll). This is why he leaps to his defence at the merest hint of criticism. This also applies to the other Yorkie bar, Mr Bairstow. You have been warned!

Yep, there's a few 'double agents' on the England HYS as usual.
This one slagging players off, some others stating England are the best in the World at every sport.
It's a bit transparent.
