I hope they're going to aim for about 320 up by 4.30-5ish and then declare. But I imagine the bowlers would like a more extended chance to have a nap.

they definitely need to be declaring before close tonight, there's no chance of play tomorrow and they might not be able to get in a full day on Tuesday either

I suppose for sibs this is a pretty chipper run rate. He's not properly digging in like he can with a strike rate down at ~20.

kind of feels like Root's letting Burns get his 100 rather than thinking about how long he wants to have to bowl tonight

We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.



No way are windies getting 374, he should have declared a while back.

Julio Cruz
May 19, 2006



the problem is now it looks really bad if he declares after he got 50 but before Burns can get 100

Good dismissal for England. Carrying on for Burns' century would have been a mistake in the context of the match.

Julio Cruz

really we should have declared half an hour ago but at least we're not batting out the day

There's never any issue of Root getting a 50, it's the gently caress all after that that's the problem.

Honestly it's gone past annoyance for me at this point and into the realms of sheer curiosity. Root easily tops the "fifties as proportion of total innings" chart, with Misbah and Doug Walters (who also feature highly on this list; heck, Walters is third) the only ones coming close.

Roads are risky for England playing Ireland. Ireland have tonked them around a few too many times in games they were supposed to lose.
