Filled out my application to be a volunteer at next year's World Cup. Interviews in September if I get past the initial phase. Be nice to get involved and experience something different.

You watching your lads playing Ireland. Shame first day got washed out. Decent start so far 

Yeah, bit of nibble in the pitch I think 300 in the first innings would be a good score here

Trent Bridge is the local one. Didn't want to use up my annual leave travelling to Lords or the Oval.

It would be a remarkable victory, but surely the experience and skill of Pakistan will see them victorious..??

This team is very inexperienced. There was severe criticism over the selection as they've taken what is a t20 team to play a test series. 

Currently 13-2 chasing 160. The middle order might as well be openers these days for Pak ffs

Seems I had more faith than you...:whistle:

Getting set for Ramadan..? Surely that will put the team at a disadvantage in the upcoming tests..??

:lol: 

ive been following the team long enough to have no faith in them mate :lol: . 

Yeah, starts tomorrow. Looking forward to it, thanks for asking. Down in Reading on my own for a large part of it so will be a bit different for me this year as Mrs & kids up in Glasgow - big part of it is family spirit / community etc but due to work commitments I couldn’t get back up. 

Im fairly confident none of them will be fasting - they’ll perhaps fast on days where they have no matches but on the days of the tests they’ll miss the fast and make it up later in the year

None. Pakistan players are informally banned from the IPL because after the attacks in Mumbai, the Indian Government decided to tar all Pakistanis with the same brush.

Buttler and Bess are the most interesting selections in the England Test squad. Vince has been dropped, Leach is injured.

It’s a weird one because I don’t think Buttler is a very good test match player, but I guess his form in the IPL turned heads amongst the selection committee

I guess so. I'm not keen on picking someone who's not playing red-ball cricket for Tests - but we'll see how it goes.

Bit mad including Buttler, he’s defo a white ball player. Vince has had a double ton so his eye will be in.
