7 wickets fell with each scoring less than 7 runs three of them were ducks 

For professional cricketers that has got to be addressed they bat or bowl and we are meant to have a long batting line up 3 players got into double figures 

Report card

Must try harder or should be sent home

I would like to thank anybody that has read my drunken ramblings whilst I have been on leave, Please be assured this will not be happening for the next test as I will be stone cold sober working 14 hour shifts whilst still watching football at 03:45 in the morning.

From the BBC

Anderson has registered the first king pair for England since 1906, and only the third ever.

As we could see this coming I'm sure the coaching staff and players saw it as well - surely they must be able to do something to address it??

Even with the ball turning square we must have batsmen who make no effort to score runs but can simply protect their wicket for a while.

You'd have thought.

It wasn't just the turning, it was the ball staying low etc. etc. Plus the mental pressure from the Indians, all around the bat, appealing everything...

Pitch deterioated terribly for the 5th day BUT we knew this was going to happen, it was losing 4 wickets for fuck all on the 2nd day that did us for.
