    Stumped got a reaction from UrmiSinhaRay in Scotland vs England - Only ODI -Edinburgh, Jun 10 2018   
    He said a close competitive game was better preparation than just practicing (i.e having some nets) when asked about the Australia series specifically, don't see what's not true or arrogant about that. Would you prefer him saying England shouldn't play Scotland/Ireland prior to ODI series and should just have some nets instead?

    Root has actually played 9 T20 innings in India. He's scored 375 runs at an average of 53.57 with a strike rate of 128.86.

    Stumped got a reaction from Vk1 in If county cricket make players improve their skills, why English cricket still sucks !!!   
    Isn't the point that experience in foreign conditions (as county cricket would be) should aid a player in playing in those conditions when they come up against them at international level? Indian batsman have typically been stronger against spin whilst English batsmen have typically been stronger against the swing because that's what they've played the majority of their domestic cricket against. Make more of their domestic cricket against the opposite and chances are they'll hone their skills better against the opposite discipline.

    English players playing more domestic cricket around the world is something I'd like to see, the problem is county cricket is the only first class system that's really open for foreign players to come over fairly easily. Perhaps it's something we should tighten up on and come to agreements with other countries over, players under 30/a certain amount of experience can only come over here as overseas players if they're on some kind of exchange where an equivalent young English player will go play in their FC domestic tournament when it begins or something like that.

    Doesn't this set a dangerous precedent if relations are still the same come 2023?

    Problem with checking the no ball after it's been called is the batsman can claim he only went for that shot because the umpire called no ball.

    Don't suppose you could say something similar again...? Preferably when Hopes on strike.

    My biggest confusion with Archer is how he wasn't getting a shot in the Barbados team before he left for England given how quickly he's taken to all formats.

    Stumped got a reaction from express bowling in England vs West Indies, Day Night Test, Edgbaston   
    Would a game starting at 6.30pm in India instead of 3.30pm really make that much difference? The day may not potentially end until 2.30am the next morning for a D/N game compared to 11.30pm for a day game.

    Stumped got a reaction from express bowling in India Under 19 team's tour of England   
    To be honest I'm not overly clued up on this u19 side. The one day series has almost been a reset in the squad as I believe they want everyone who's playing this series to be available for the next world cup. I did however see a video of Jack Plom taking 6 wickets against India u19 in a tour game and he looked to have some serious height and pace for a 17 year old.

    Stumped got a reaction from Scar in At what men's level is women's cricket?   
    From an English perspective I think if you picked a womens world xi it would probably beat a local club ECB premier league team (the highest level of club cricket in England, so the level below county, county 2nd xi and minor county cricket). Start going far above that and I think it would start to become a bit of a mismatch.

    12.5% of his wickets have come in Asia where he has played 12.1% of his games.
     
    63.7% of his wickets have come in England where he has played 57.3% of his games.
     
    Not sure batting first here was the best choice by South Africa.

    Why would they need to release a tape when it was fully audible on live TV.

    He'd have received the exact same fine and demerit points as he has on 2 occasions recently.

    Not sure Yadav is quite in the classification of a fast bowler to be honest, he tends to average about 140kmph in test cricket which is probably borderline.
