In the recent drawn test between the England women and the Indian women, the Indians went from an excellent 0 for 167,
to an unbelievable 8 for 197 !!!

Cricket is such an unpredictable game.

Cheers

Looking like there'll be joint winners after days of rain. Bit unsatisfactory for everyone, but then the whole idea is pretty weak.

Surely the Kiwis should start favourites.
In their last meeting in 2019, New Zealand beat India 2-0 at home in New Zealand.
Kiwis have just beaten the Poms 1-0 in a series in England.
It was only rain that prevented the scoreline being 2-0.
They have assimilated well.
Due to covid, rescheduling, IPL etc, India have not played any red ball cricket since beating England 2-0 in UAE early in March.
The Indians will be coming off a disjointed IPL T20 series in India, not ideal preparation.
A champion team versus a team of champions will triumph every time.
And we must not forget that the English women's team is making life difficult for the Indian Women's team in a 4 day test match.
Pity it won't get the coverage of the mens test.

West Indies out for 97 against SA. They went from 2/ 45 to 7/ 56. Ngidi had 5 for 19 and Nortje 4 for 35.

Perhaps not the best option to bat first in this case.

Yorkshire batsman Dawid Malan , bowled out on 199 .......... cricket can be so cruel, especially for batsmen. I guess that's why batsmen get the kudos for success, because the end can come so suddenly .......

Interesting Tassie v NSW match.
NSW 1st Innings ........ 32 ....... Peter Neville top scored with 10 not out.
Jackson Bird seemed to like the conditions, with 7 for 18 off 10 overs.
Tassie hitting runs in both innings ???
Bizarre.

Cheers

Now 3/400 ............ seems like someone reminded Usman last night that Marnus can roll an arm over. QLD in very deep doo doo.

Not only does Cameron Green have a big double century, but he has a strike rate of 75. Batting brilliantly.

Cheers

Poms in serious trouble at 6 down and still trailing by 70 odd runs.
may well have another three day test, perhaps even quicker than the last one.
Looks like an Indian VS New Zealand test Championship at Lords.
Although, if England can turn it around when the Indians tour this year, they might sneak into the final at Indias expense.

3/325 , Green 182 not out. Fair to say it was a dubious decision to bowl. Usman might be having dinner by himself tonight.

Cheers
