Well a 3 test series worked a treat here 🙃


Poms getting docked for slow over rates


England have been docked two World Test Championship (WTC) points and their players have been fined 40% of their match fee for maintaining a slow over rate in their epic win in the second Test against New Zealand at Trent Bridge. This adds up to a total of 10 docked points for the side in this WTC cycle; they had lost eight points during the second Ashes Test in Brisbane last year.

Lol, JJ acting as if the kiwis have been horrendous. Theyve been good matches, England have just been better.

Both have been pretty good test matches.

To chase down 300 on the last day is a pretty good effort.

not horrendous - but selections have been dumb - leaving out Wagner over and over hasn't been smart... obviously Latham isn't the great leader and player that Doull thinks he is, Williamson was a loss in both respects for test 2...

Just disappointed tbh, I think the side is better than this

Another mediocre day, aside from big Dazza who’s going full Voges with his test career

Wagner a couple of wickets in his first over of the series. What a joke from Stead & co not selecting him - mind numbingly dumb selections have cost us this series. How could anyone prefer 1/100 Matty Henry to Wagner - I guess Henry is from Canterbury.

Imagine thinking Michael Bracewell is a 4th bowler at test level. The self delusion is strong in our selectors.

Yeah, the selections have been atrocious, leaving out Wagner for Patel and Henry, then leaving out Patel for Bracewell.
We have had our chances, but those selections have been critical imo
