Tucked away in the Zimbabwe story.....

In another decision approved by the ICC on Thursday, a captain will no longer be suspended for serious over-rate breaches, with all players taking equal responsibility and being fined the same amount as the captain.

I've been pondering getting a ticket to Day 2 of the Ireland Test. Plenty of seats available and I can get one that should be in the shade. However, the forecast 37c in London has put me off.

Even in the shade, that won't be pleasant.

I suspect that this means Curran rather than Foakes will start the first Ashes test.

Roy
Burns
Denley
Root
Bairstow (wk)
Stokes
Buttler
Ali
Curran
Woakes
Broad


Maybe Stone for Denley if they think the batting lineup is strong enough

Are Australia not very good or have we given them some parks pitch to play their warm-up game on ? Either way, they’re not learning a lot to help selecting their first test side.

I think it shows that their attack is as good as our attack and that their batting line up is as brittle as ours.

With all the injuries to England, the Aussie attack is now way better.

My post CWC optimism is draining fast

Nice to have test cricket back.

Longest gap between tests anywhere in the world since 1971/72

As much as I like Andy Zaltzmann, it's good to have Andrew Samson back :)

Well, Roy's debut didn't last long.

Good ball according to Aggers

Roy looked terribly nervous before exiting.

He would have been LBW just before but for the no-ball

Even if he fails in the second innings, I think England are committed now to him opening in The Ashes
