Bookies won't be taking any £ on December's SPoTY
It also means archer's brilliance on day 1 doesn't go to waste.
Well, that's easy for you to say...
Wow. That was something pretty special.
My best mate is an Aussie who lives in New Zealand. Play starts at 11 at night, his time, so he usually tries to watch some of the first session before he goes to bed.
Today, about an hour into the first session, he sent me a message that just said, "Oh yeah, baby!"
I just messaged him back saying, "When you get up in the morning, mate, you're going to eat your words."
We were having a meal in a pub in Cookham.
We were not the only ones constantly refreshing our phones!
Who says cricket is boring!!!
I switched the radio of yesterday in disgust after the 2nd wicket. I kept dipping in every so often, then resigned to the loss after woakes got out. Went to the beach and overhead excitable cricket chatter and tuned in to hear the last 2 balls!
If they keep Roy in for the next test I'm going to... fume quietly.
I've just realised that all I've been saying for the last twenty minutes or so, quietly, under my breath is "fucking hell.... fucking hell...."
This. Stuart Broad.
And this from Leach. Love him already.
Look at the fans rise with his punched glove!
There's a brilliant image of Stokes, absolutely fucked, on Broad's shoulder, Broad looking up at the scoreboard. You can imagine Broad is going "No mate, you won it, I can see it up on the scoreboard."
South Somerset paper The Chard and Ilminster News has Jack Leach and Ben Stokes secure Ashes win for England
Have just seen a replay of Warner's catch to remove Root. Bloody hell! What a catch!!!
Yup. Like a battle scene from GOT or Vikings
To be fair the one that was out so was so out the umpire wants sacking for missing it.
I wouldn't swap Ben Stokes for Steve Smith you know. Smith couldn't have done that today. He hasn't got the strength of character, hence the cheating and all that.
It was amazing. I was criticizing Warner just last week for his fumble fingers in the second test, but he was fantastic in the third. I don't even know how he knew where to dive for that catch to dismiss Root.
Yeah, it was pretty bad. I think Wilson's had a pretty awful series at the stumps. In the first tests, a good half-dozen of his decisions were overturned on review.
Paddy Power already paying out. Was prob some large inflow after WC. Still, trying to make it abut them as per the free advertising model. Which i'm doing now.
Well. Not gonna lie, feel about that l,the way I did about the world cup.
On the one hand ... bullshit.
On the other hand FUCK ME FUCK ME FUCK ME WE WON WE WON WE WON BEN STOKES FOR QUEEN OR SOMETHING YÀAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!
I think you're wrong.
Funnily enough the Croydon Guardian is not running with Shitgift boys secure Ashes win for England.
Feel nearly as nervous now watching the highlights. Fuck me those sixes are good
