Root handled it brilliantly.  No drama, wandered near the stump mike yet didn’t throw him under the bus when he could have potentially ended his season. 

 

Agreed. 

 

Hoping that’s not someone in the sky sports com box you can hear laughing.

Saw this on Twitter earlier it's a record of the fastest average speeds of England bowler's in a Test match the last 15 years. 

To be honest I can't remember seeing Ajmal Shahzad bowling as he only played that one test although he was apparently clocked at over 96mph during it

Great ending to the SA- SL Test. Sri Lanka were 226-9 chasing 304, and Perera- who played brilliantly for 153- and Fernando put on 78 for the last wicket to win. Fernando also got his highest Test score of 6- 4 of which were overthrows.

Just seen one of the worst LBW decisions ever. Tom Curran given out when the ball was clearly going down leg and was also high. England were cruising at 4 wickets down then a mini collapse to 7 down.

England blew that big time. They should have strolled that. Ah well at least the derby and Joan barmy army can get to bed handy. A good 90% of the England support must be over a 100 years old. It’s fucking depressing

In a typical England test match, they might go through half a dozen new balls plus a couple of part-worn ones just in case a ball gets launched into orbit for a six. In a typical England ODI, it's a new ball every over and each one comes down with snow on it!

Hell of a match- Rashid goes for 8.5 an over and finishes with 4 wickets in 5 balls. 46 sixes in the two innings as well. Shame I was monitoring the illegal streams tonight.
