    That was an excellent game. Shit Fielding from India though. Should've been over well before.

    If any of you are feeling flush and want to see the worlds number one cricket team play England there are tickets available at Lords for the Test this week.

    Or you can be cheap like me and take a punt on it going five days. Only £20 for an adult.

    Anyone who has seen Englands top 6 bat would not be buying tickets for day 5 of a match.

    This Lords pitch should last longer than the one in Ahmedabad so it's possible :)

    You should probably look at the weather forecast...

    Standard NZ batting.

    Wagner is an angry man maybe he'll crack a quick 50.

    Excellent knock by Conway on his debut!

    This cloud/weather is ideal for swing bowling.

    I'm convinced NZ take a lot more wickets in cloudy weather. Just hoping it doesn't pee down.

    Pissed down here for a few hours, so I think there's a bank on its way. Won't last and by this afternoon, it'll be swinging like a fucker.

    Well that was a disappointing final day. I understand that nobody wants to lose the first match of the series but couldn't England at least have tried a run chase? I would have been pissed off if I bought a ticket for that second England innings.

    What a snooze fest. Disappointing not to try and chase that with 70 + overs.

    I think it was the right decision. A bit boring but England were outplayed much of that match so a draw was a good result for us. Also our batting has been wobbly for a bit so it was better to see them off than go for it and get bowled out for a ton - imagine the shit they'd have given us for that

    Yeah, hard to criticise given how poor our batting has been recently.bit felt like a grown up decision. We got lucky with the weather, were outplayed in most sessions.

    Yeah, I understand but also think that it was harsh at the same time.

    I read four of the tweets. Not sure if there are any more but pretty tame stuff. A couple of remarks about girls playing video games and a pretty shit joke.

    It's dumb not erase social media accounts if you become famous but there's nothing to suggest he's a raving sexist/racist.

    Oh there's a few more, they're more immature than offensive.

    The punishment seems harsh to me but that's the world we live in.

    Honestly, I said to my wife yesterday… I am so glad we didn’t have social media when I was 15/16. I have never thought of myself as racist but I 100% have said racist/sexist ‘jokes’ that I would rather not have a record of anywhere.

    Also, as an adult now, I cringe at the stupidity of me as a youth and would hate to have stuff that I had said effecting my life now.

    But the thing is - it's not a punishment. Not missing a chance to jump into a culture war, even the government have (wilfully in their case) got this one wrong.

    It's suspension pending an investigation. Seems sensible, nay, protocol to me. A punishment or not will be decided upon.

    To most people though suspension does equal a punishment.

    Agreed, just trying illustrate how I think a lot of people will see it.
