Nearly fought back. Rash for final over did not work.

Ended up being a cracking game, the game swung during the day. A great game of cricket just a shame with the result.

I'm happy with most of that, it's a fair reflection of where the players are with the exception that I'd have given Malan a white-ball contract and I'd say Wood has got to have been close to getting a test and white ball contract rather than white-ball only. I'm also not to see Banton on a incremental contract, I think he did enough to deserve it.

I'm not sure 'bit' does it justice, he's a complete arsehole. There have been rumours about how much his teammates have disliked him for years, mainly because he has an ego that's significantly bigger than his talent.

just google him but basically claiming that Stokes' wife would be all over him in seconds if they were locked down together and then doubled down on it getting into arguments with a few other people. All because Stokes said he wouldn't wish quarantine on anyone and agreeing when he was asked if that even meant Samuels. The full thing is sadder than I'm making it sound, the guy acts like a teenager still and he's nearly 40.

Strange fellow:

Quote
Marlon Samuels has made another reference to the partners of England cricket players, days after being slammed for an ugly remark about Ben Stokes’ wife.

Former West Indian batsman Samuels took to Instagram earlier this week to respond to comments made by Stokes, who said he wouldn’t wish spending 14 days in isolation on his “worst enemy”.

“It wasn’t the most enjoyable thing you ever have to do, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy,” Stokes told the BBC. “I text my brother saying the same thing, and my brother asked, ‘You wouldn’t even do that to Marlon Samuels?’

“I said, ‘No, it’s that bad’, that’s how tough it was.”

Samuels was outraged at having his name dragged into things and went nuclear.

“No white boy could diss me in the sports and no get back diss look at this b***h still thinking about me give me 14 days with you wife turn her into Jamaican in 14 seconds mate none of yall knows me that simple means it’s my f***ing superior skin tone yall hate f*** you,” Samuels wrote on Instagram on Tuesday.

Samuels and Stokes clashed on the cricket field as rivals, as did the West Indian and Shane Warne, who Samuels called a “b***h” as part of his tirade.

Yes read that good article. It's a totally political thing disguised as a safety issue by BCCI  and really ICC should have the balls to  do something about it. Current tournament being played in UAE blows away the player safety lie.

The ICC should ban India from tests until they agree to play tests against every other test playing nation. Disgraceful that they are allowed to pick and choose their opponents.

If they are unable to guarantee the safety of the visitors then, obviously, they would have to forfeit home advantage.
