Course we do!  Only country ever to win a football, rugby union and cricket World Cup. We are an elite nation in loads of women’s sports. We are only usually only behind giants like USA

I'm glad I stayed up for that, almost went to bed an hour and a half or so ago. 3.15 am here

England utterly clueless how to bat on turning pitches but it's not a surprise as when a county produces them and produces spinners for England their reward is a points deduction. The selection f

Lancs will probably still get relegated but you can't say they aren't going down fighting. To win the last game was incredible, to force a tie in this one arguably even more so!!

Those 8 points could make all the difference

2 games left vs York's and Hamps, win both and stay up, win one draw one probably scrape through, anything else relegated IMO.

Surely Jennings has had it at England level now (for a while at least - remembering he's only 21).

Bowled not playing a shot, surely he's been completely found out at test level - and even the changes he's made (obviously he's put a lot of work in during the break between tests) haven't worked as the Indians have just done a complete all-round number on him.

Back in the Lancs team?

Jennings is 26. Which is more than his average this summer of just over 18 against India. However the fact Cook is retiring may give him another chance with the tour to Sri Lanka

I believe from whats Ive read and listened to Jennings is likely to go to Sri Lanka. Not many options out there. 

Expect the squad to be

Burns Jennings Ali Root Bairstow Stokes Buttler Curran Rashid Broad Anderson Vince Pope Leach Woakes and Porter. 

On Lancs signed fast bowler Glesson from Northampton on a 3 years contract.

He looks like a proper classy batsman, but often gives his wicket away completely out of the blue. Have to wonder that it isn't concentration.

England effectively need a new 1, 2 and 3 because Moeen isn't a 6 never mind a 3. 

Well played, Alistair Cook. A proper Test cricketer. 

Ali will bat at 3 in the Sri Lanka. 

Jennings will be given the winter to prove. Cant keep changing every few months. Plus not that much quality in county championship.either

Moeen is not a 3. He's an 8

Jennings has proved already he's not Test quality, with a poor technique.  The only virtue is he's young and might get better, but the best players look at home from the start, and he's a bag of nerves. Apart from Root, who is a 4, England basically have a team of No 6s and 7s - Bairstow, Stokes, Buttler, Curran etc shouldn't be any higher.

Yes Jim, if Ali’s going to bat three, we are in trouble.

going back to Cook, I think I heard that from the four batsmen above him in the table of most ever test runs, none of them were openers - which I’d say is by far the hardest position to play. Makes his achievement unsurpassed in the history of cricket.

Must admit to having plagiarising this but -

Cook makes 147 in his final innings, Jimmy equals McGrath as the leading fast bowler of all time. Joe Root back to form with a century and super Kohli goes first ball.

Carlsberg don't do cricket but if they did...........

Yes not as often as I'd like though. My last match was Headingley v Pakistan with as bunch of Rovers season ticket holders. We do the Headingley match on the Saturday every year. You should join us.

If Root wants 6 bowlers then Ali will bat at 3. I think thats will the way he go in Sri Lanka. It will the same team apart from Burns for Cook and possible Leach for Rashid. Also Smith's comments during the test to media seems to suggest Jennings will go to Sri Lanka. 

I dont see many County players who are openers scoring lots of runs apart from Burns. Gubbins has been injured this summer so not played as many as he come off done. Can you suggest a couple of openers who deserve to be in the squad ahead of Jennings in terms of runs and quality apart from Burns? Ive just a quick look through and cant see anyone who has scored lots of runs and average aswell. 

My team for Sri Lanka

Burns Jennings Bairstow Root(c) Pope Stokes Buttler(wk) Ali Leach Broad Anderson. 

The rest of squad imo will be Vince, Curran, Woakes, Porter, Rashid

It was good day yesterday..

Lancs allowing Yorks back into the Roses match. Chasing anything over 150 will likely be tough for us at the moment.

Well done Jimmy Anderson on becoming the most successful ever pace bowler in test cricket. The extra digit helps but it’s still a marvellous achievement despite that.
