I'll say this about Broad, he's ridiculously lethal (albeit that batsmen can't play a remotely swinging ball these days) when he's on song.

Oz's "two test series are bollocks" theory looks like being ratified again today, with the series ending beautifully poised at one-each.

This is Joe Root's 15th Test overall in Australia / New Zealand. His team's record in the previous 14 stands at 0 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses. 

 

To say he'd be absolutely desperate to win this is an understatement.

Trebor mints are ace for getting the ball to swing.

 

Reminds me of the old Trebor Mints advert song:

 

# Trebor Mints are a minty bit stronger,

Stick 'em up your arse and they'll last a bit longer #

 

Trebor Mints - good for deviant behaviour.

Brilliant series win for New Zealand.

 

Bad luck England. Started the last day really well but faded.

 

 

Yep fair play.

I thought they were fucked this morning.

 

Impressive enough team, with the emphasis on team, NZ.

Compare it to Australia just now. Yes, the circumstances suggested a loss was on the cards, but that was just taking the fucking piss. Pathetic. Khawaja, both Marsh brothers can fuck off. Done with them.

We are at historical rock-bottom.  Rock bottom.  Never ever worse.

 

We need to start all over again.  Ironically, it was South Africa 0-4 in 1970 that sounded one of our history's most serious warning bells.

 

And now, the masking tape of the last 5 years is thankfully fucking shredded.

Lancashire batsmen putting a marker down for England spots , gone from 62 for 2 , to 73 all out in an hour.

 

Notts thinking ‘anything you can do’ manage to lose 4 wickets chasing down 10 .

Should have kept playing at Aigburth.

After the help Aigburth gave in the year they won the league I have been amazed at the lack of games it has been given since.

Played up that way a lot in my teens, Aigburth Cricket Club and Jericho Lane.

Worse than before the Border era? You’ve just bummed us in the Ashes.

The out grounds have never really got many games out of Lancs but that season, after winning the league without playing a single game at OT, guess which football club they decided to to parade to trophy at.

 

I was listening to an ex Lancs player ( cant remember who) last season talking about playing county cricket at OT. He reckoned it puts them at a disadvantage and they prefer playing at the out grounds.

Fucking hell thats some scoring!

 

Was it the Under 8’s bowling to him?

They finished on 405-3. Another lad got a ton.

 

It’s a small ground and he’s a big fucker but as you say it’s an amazing rate.
