Hoping against hope that the stupid competition falls flat on its face this year & that group of supporters it was designed for completely lose interest. 

The Hundred is confirmed until at least 2028

Trouble is now we have to hope the likes of Roy and Livingstone get back into form before the WC. I'd have liked to to see more of Salt and Brook too.

The balance between giving people the chance to find form and creating competition for places is really tough. At the moment it feels like England are a bit stale and also the bowling unit lacks punch.

Im at the Ireland v South Africa T20, in that well known Irish town of Bristol.

Probably only around a thousand people here

Ireland gave it a good go, but lost too many early wickets, one of which would have been overturned if they'd reviewed it.

Still, they gave the Saffers a better game than England did.

Ireland were just one batter light. Needed one more before Adair came in.

Lorcan Tucker played great

Jimmy and Broad have not bowled in a competitive red ball game since the India test at Edgbaston ended on the 5th July. Stokes has not bowled since his last ODI on 19th July.

The Saffers played a 4 day game against England Lions about 10 days ago - they lost heavily. Hopefully we are not going into this test too short of match practice.

Dismal from the top order and capped off by Stokes.
