Previously at Lord’s


Had a Tamim inspired day. It also clear they like even numbers when it comes to test days.


Finished the tail off well, but yet again lost their way when the ball wasn’t moving around. 4 bowlers?

Can Bangladeshi still draw?

Yes, well I hope so. Cause that would be cool. They could win too, and I could become a beauty queen.

Play of the day

The Lord’s announcers and Sky said that Robbie Earl was batting when that mullet and lack of facial hair was clearly Rubel. I understand the confusion though, those rubbish Deshi seamers all look the same to me too.

Testicular moment of the day

Tamim. That is all.

Working class moment

Junaid is not a good batsman, at the moment anyway. He still scores a lot from edges, seems unable to take the initiative off of bowlers, and generally gets in his own way. Yet in his last 5 innings against England he has fought and fought to make 106, 39,34, 58 and currently 66*. He has a strong moral fibre to his batting, but a batting average in test cricket of 28.

Question of the day

If Tamim’s innings wasn’t enough to get Jamie Siddon’s cheering on the balcony, what would be?

    I’ve been saying from the start: England have more than enough batting with Swann / Bresnan / Prior, and should’ve got 5 bowlers in. England’s late middle order threw their wickets away for cheap runs so its not neccessarily true to say they didnt perform here. Much as I think Morgan is good enough for tests, a bowler would have made a more valuable contribution. England are most likely to get the remaining wickets and, for the crowds that do show we have the prospect of an entertaining slog’n’wickets session against the tail and then a decent chase. However, they could have been a lot more convincing had they a second spinner, or a left arm bowler to mix up the lines and take the load of the three main quicks. We have also seen that England have a very good bowling attack when the pitch and conditions suit, but not much of a plan B when its flat and sunny. Still, I am sure the curators at the SCG, MCG and the WACA will take pity on England and prepare green seamers. Hmmm.

    I know schadenfreude is a bad thing, but it’s always fun to see England struggle. I hope the Bangas can pull a draw from this – they deserve it.

  4. @ Ceejaypee – I agree with your point about England bowlers having no Plan B when the ball dosen’t swing. Also think that Eng will have to go back to 5 bowlers at some stage of the summer.

    It’s all well and good beating Bangladesh ( and probably Pakistan) with 4 bowlers, but to turn up in Aus with that policy would be a disaster in my opinion.

    Also England might have found a decent young bowler in Steve FInn, so it makes more sense to lessen his workload, rather than bowl him into the ground, which is probably what will happen if he turns out to be any good.

    What about OCD Trott marking up his guard after the match had finished earlier, class!!
