Impressive list of time zones

I think the ECB should look at trying to get the one day stuff out of the way before the Tests if at all possible. These matches seem really pretty insignificant in the whole scheme of things.

Apart from hoping Bristol gets some decent weather and good crowd to reward all their efforts and the Yorkies do well I can't really get enthused.

I apologise for saying anything nice about the ECB, but one thing International cricket does, that County cricket no longer does, is to take the game to the fans...unlike soccer and rugby, where the large majority of games are played in London.

It is beyond my comprehension why English coaches allow their players to play footballl to warm up before cricket starts.

Because if you ban warm ups players get injured!

EYT. Well having played for over 50 years for teams which never warmed up for cricket match by playing football I believe there are more injuries sustained doing this than by normal cricket related warm up methods which were used for decades and still are by majority of test playing countries! iMHO it is a bad habit which has come into being since football has become a year round obsession! Ps I also played competitive soccer for 15 years in Winters but never warmed up for it by practicing cricket skills!!

See that Morgan is commenting about the quality of the pitch just in case he has another failure with the bat!

Do you have any evidence to back up this assertion?
Most test playing nations use various ball games to warm up.
Off the top of my head I'm struggling to remember the last time a player missed playing through a football related injury.

As if by magic.

With Morgan and Buttler failing again and Root now gone, the West Indies are in this game. Maybe Rashid and Plunkett will come to the rescue and even Willey the number 11 ?!

Time to ditch the overrated Buttler?

From 39 to 100 in 14 deliveries.

What a hundred by Moeen - even given the schoolboy standard fielding, small boundaries, average bowling, etc.
Hell of an effort.

In response to an earlier poster, didn't Ryan Sidebottom miss the start of last season with a injury sustained playing football? Ankle if my memory serves me correctly.

Derek Pringle once injured himself whilst writing a letter. I'm unsure whether the contents pertained to association football.

Seem to recall Jimmy Greaves missed a game after injuring his back while sneezing. Allegedly.

Yes, I've known numerous guys who've missed work because they were sneezing heavily the night before.

Fidel Edwards got injured playing football before the game last season ( it may have been this season) at Headingley. It happens quite frequently.

They can, of course, also get injured during normal practice, like the Aussie Magrath who stood on the ball.

I can't recall who it was who injured himself opening a jar of salad cream?

Say what you like about Morgan but he certainly gets the best out of Plunkett and Rashid.
