Oh my God
My reaction to one fine test match, the best ever? It's certainly up there.

Very bad use of the third umpire referrals, could and should have finished in glorious failure.

The recreation of Jack Leach’s run is funny and worth hunting out.

Quiz time, all of the English players who hit a century in the 90s, I got 12/16.

I got 11 and really should have got a couple of the other ones.

Have you seen this of Jofra Archer? It's "when you forget you can't go outside".

Sad many non cricket fans will not understand how good this ball was. Such a talent and could have been one of England's greatest, injury permitted.

Agreed, he was poised to be a superstar. That 2005 pace attack complemented each other so well plus they had a nasty streak. Harmison, Hoggard, Flintoff and Jones. I might have posted this before, but Hayden didn't score any runs until the final test, when Jones was out injured. I think he was a bit scared until then, and I can't say that I blame him.
