I bet Yorkshire must be fuming about Rashide. Only in the last week he said wouldn't change his mind about playing first class cricket this season he can't be bothered ah poor you, needs to get a reality check, and get a proper job. You would think Yorkshire will sack him, like it seems they may have done with Plunket. Be interesting to see what others think on her. I am expecting a very tough series against India, and wouldn't be surprised if we lost. At the moment they probably have their strongest ever fast bowling line up ever in their history, and of course very good spin bowlers. Looking forward to going next Wednesday.

Maybe Poysden could go to Yorkshire in exchange for Rashid.  Then Yorkshire would have a leg spinner who wants to play and Warwickshire who don't want to play a leg spinner would have a leg spinner who doesn't want to play - a match made in heaven!

ECB have messed around with test cricket on several fronts. Not starting test cricket until August instead of May. Cramming test cricket with hardly a break. Not having it shown on free to air TV. Having tests starting on different days of the week instead of the traditional Thursday. National media promotion very poor IMO.

In recognition of Test no. 1,000, here's a question.
What is the significance of this list of ten Test cricketers?
George Ulyett, W.G. Grace, Wilfred Rhodes, Les Ames,Sir Len Hutton, Brian Close, John Edrich, Graham Gooch, Alec Stewart, James Anderson.
(I owe the question - and the answer - to a tweet from Mike Selvey)

I started off thinking they might have appeared in the 1st, 100th, 200th, etc Tests then realised there aren't enough players to complete the sequence. There are, though, some players there with famously long careers. Injuries and selectorial aberrations would probably mean they couldn't cover all England's 1000 tests between them but I guess it's something along those lines.

Yes that's fairly close but not quite the answer

Each appeared in at lest one in a hundred (1-100, 101-200, 201-300 etc)

One of the list has appeared in every England test match, and their careers over lapped with the person immediately before & after them in the list.
ie Close played with Hutton and Edrich etc.
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.

I think Mugabe has it. In Ulyett's last Test Grace played. In Grace's last Test Rhodes played. In Rhodes' last Test Ames played and so on.

Yes, Mugabe is right. George Ulyett played in the first Test ever and later played in a Test with W.G. who later played in a Test with Wilfred Rhodes, etc, right up to James Anderson who played in a Test with Alec Stewart who had played in a Test with Graham Gooch.
So you can encompass all those 1,000 Tests with just those ten players.

Watching the video of the Root dismissal, it was obvious that the positioning of the umpire was dreadful, he hadn't even started to move to a side on position when the first run was completed, and he was at an angle of about 45 degrees from the popping crease when the stumps were broken, when best practice to to be in line with the popping crease.

If it had been a closer decision he would not have been able to give an accurate decision without relying on a tv replay.

Sadly this is, yet another, example of poor technique from an elite panel umpire.

Also, Kholi's actions after the dismissal should be punished with a level 2 penalty, at least.

It could be that the umpire positions like that so as not to obstruct the view for the camera.

Returning to Terry's sequence, who might be expected to keep it rolling forward when Jimmy Anderson calls it a day - presumably in the next couple of years? Who might be expected to still have a dozen or more years of Test cricket left in them? The short-arsed trundler, perhaps? Dom Bess? Sam Hain?
