Latest from Lords

Post by simon redshaw » Fri Jul 14, 2006 11:59 am

Here's the latest on day two of the 1st Test:

England 361-4

Alistair Cook fell to the new ball. Paul Collingwood is still in and Ian Bell has 21 so far. Looking good for 450+ at the moment. I know Pakistan had the same butter fingers as us at Lords but its good to see England doing so well again after recent mishaps. :D :D :D :D

Keep it going lads!!

i was watching a quiz show last night (pokerface, anyone see it?) anyway, i digress, there was a question about terms in cricket. they really are quite ridiculous arent they? i cant actually remember them because they were so crazy! i found it highly amusing i must say.

I know what you mean.

I was asked to play cricket for the village and instead of saying, "No thanks, I haven't played since school" I just said yes.

All very well until the captain is setting his field and says things like "Levo, you go and stand at silly point."

You what?

I agree silly point is a strange term!! And there are a few others like Long Leg!! :wink:

BTW England are 426-4 at lunch with Paul Collingwood nearing a double century and Ian Bell on 43. What a change after that recent series against Sri Lanka!

Also, some news on injured Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar. He is going to do some training with Warwickshire and play some club cricket in the hope of getting fit for later in the tour.

England looking very comfortable. Pakistan really do not seem to be making much progress.

Hope Colly gets his double century. With Bell looking good, it is going to be very interesting to see what happens when Freddie and Vaughan return.
Donncha O'Callaghan and Bruce Reihana are the best players that ever lived. Don't even bother to argue with me.

And - however good Imanol Harinordoquy is, he is still an idiot

Well here I go again. Geraint Jones. Grrrrrrrrr.

Nothing against the chap, he's suffering with the bat and that's that. But as the Radio 5 pundit said just now:

"If you don't score runs, no matter what you do with the gloves, you get dropped. However, Duncan Fletcher is a very big fan of Geraint Jones."

Well I'm a big fan of Penny Smith but so what?

Great day for England - three centuries, three Pakistan wickets, and Collingwood - WHAT A CATCH!

Keep up the good work, fellas

Kin I have the same feelings regarding Geraint Jones although I am living in Kent. Nothing personal too against Geraint but he shouldn't be in the England team on current performances with the bat. But as the Radio 5 pundit suggests he will keep his place. And don't get me started on Duncan Fletcher. Grrr on him also. His one-eyed and biased selection policies aren't helping England's cause. Chris Read should be in the team now.

Penny Smith is nice isn't she?! :D :D

Debbie, as you say a great day for England. Pakistan 66-3. Colly takes another of his great catches! There are many proud people up in Durham!! :D :D :D :D

Jess, as you say a difficult selection equation once Freddie, and Michael Vaughan are back. If the latter of course comes back. That is in doubt at the moment. My own view is that you shouldn't drop any of Paul Collingwood, Alistair Cook and Ian Bell on their first innings scores and that England would go into the next Test with 6 good batsmen, a fit and hopefully explosive allrounder, a dodgy wicketkeeper, and three good bowlers.

Pakistan lost Sami early and Mohammed Yousuf and Inzamam have added 97 since. Pakistan 165-4 at Lunch. Tough going at the moment.

Not been great for England today. :( Pakistan are 409-7. Mohammad Yousuf still there on 185 with Shaid Afridi. Well done Pakistan. Inzamam made 69, Kamran Akmal made 58. KP took his wicket.

Mohammad Yousuf has contributed his considerable form this year to his conversion from Christianity to the Islam Faith. Well, there you go! :wink:

There is life on mars, Robinson will win the World Cup for England, weapons of mass destruction will be found and I will marry a rich princess. Pieterson has taken a test wicket!

Being on the road almost all of today from Brighton to Leicester via London enabled me to listen to Test Match Special fully, it is an absolute institution! I'd forgotten just how much!
