“AND I TOLD YOU SO” ! –
SEE ENGLAND v INDIA 3rd Test
19th August 2018
ENGLAND ARE ON THE BACK FOOT AT 307 for 6 –
SELECTORS THOUGH IT WAS GOING TO BE A WALK IN THE PARK
ED SMITH IS THE STUPID SELECTOR WHO INFLUENCED ROOT DECISION
AND ROOT IS THE CAPTAIN THAT WON THE TOSS AND FAILED TO BAT FIRST
SAM CURRAN MUST BE DELIGHTED NOT TO PART OF THIS ENGLAND FAILURE (BROAD AND ANDERSON) WITH THE BALL.
THANK WOAKES BUT ENGLAND MISSED CURRAN
GENTLEMAN ED WENT TO CAMBRIDGE FAILED WITH THE BAT BEFORE HURTING HIS ANKLE
BECAME AN ENGLAND SELECTOR AFTER
Edward Thomas Smith is an English author and journalist, former professional cricketer, and cricket commentator. Smith was born in Pembury, Kent.
DID I NOT TELL YOU THAT ENGLAND NEEDED 6 FAST BOWLERS NOT 4
BUT ROOT THOUGHT THAT THE BOWLERS WON THE FIRST TWO TESTS AND INDIA
FAILED WITH THE BAT SO WHY NOT A THIRD TIME ?
IT’S A GIVEN IN TEST CRICKET TO BAT FIRST NOT FOURTH GIVEN THE CHANCE.
BUT ROOT NEW THAT HIS TWO OPENING BATSMEN COOK AND JENNINGS
WERE CRAP BEFORE AND THIRD TIME UNLUCKY FOR COOK WAS ONE TOO MANY
THE COOK CATCH WAS A REFLEX ACTION, NO THOUGHT WENT INTO IT
OH YE OF LITTLE FAITH ROOT
BUT NOTE I HAVE NOT SAID THAT BEN STOKES SHOULD NOT HAVE PLAYED.
I DID NOT SAY THAT YESTERDAY
WHAT I SAID WAS THAT COOK AND JENNINGS SHOULD HAVE BEEN
“RESTED”IN FAVOUR OF CURRAN AND PORTER.
I ALSO SAID RASHID THE SEVENTH BOWLER WAS ALL THAT WAS NEEDED IN THE SPIN DEPT.
WAS RIGHT TO BE DROPPED FROM THE 14 SELECTED.
TEST CRICKET IS THE PEOPLE’S GAME AND THE SUPPORTERS SHOULD HAVE MORE OF A SAY !
