They're not playing against those very gentle New Zealand or Indian medium pace bowling attacks.

It has been proven over the years that players like Root and Bairstow love flat tracks and gentle swing and seam bowling (like you would find in county cricket) but die a little bit on the inside when there is a bit of zip in a bowling attack.

It was pathetic. I messaged my son when we were 5 or 6 down to say how appalling it was seeing test cricketers laughing after another swing and miss. It's a 5 day test. The previous victories were freak results against predictable attacks as you say marjamlew.

I've not heard any comments from Sir Geoffrey but I reckon he was a nice shade of pace watching that circus.

The guys out of touch. I've spoken to many people over the past few days and, even the most rabid Royalists can see the merit in going ahead with the football and, getting people together to mourn and celebrate en masse.

Hopefully next weeks fixtures will go ahead and I can be at Old Trafford watching Leeds lose rather than watching nondescript La Liga games on TV.

Oh and lame batting performances by England and SA again yesterday
