The Final Word went to birth times/time of day completing 10,000 and reckon Root just edges it, if you want to go to that level.

I'm more surprised England actually won a test.

Root looks a lot happier now the burden of captiancy is lifted from him. Hopefully it'll be a decent summer, but I'm not holding out too much hope.

I might have been recruited to play for a local team - T20 games on a Wednesday eve - and so might actually be playing again for the first time in ~20 years. Luckily I don't think Batcombe 2nd XI play at a hugely high standard so I might not embarrass myself too much.

The 50 over game that's on now (eng vs Ned) is brutal. England are 430-4 with 5 overs left

What on earth has happened to the England ODI side. They've been awful this summer.

Hold that thought. But yes, Mark Butcher was saying on the Wisden podcast that there's an odd lack of oomph to them at the mo. Maybe just transitional, but it feels like they just need a wallop to the attitude like the test team had (though the latter also benefitted from the pitches and balls in England - lots of county games have seen large run chases in the fourth innings, too).

It just seems like decision making has gone out the window this summer. Sure the games in the Nederlands were good, but coming up against real opposition there's been many brainless mistakes. At least the test team is doing decent for a change.
Also Butcher has been making some great jokes on coms this summer.
