English complaints

India Saffers thread scrapped - not enough interest from you folks

Must say, I'm surprised about some of the whinging and moaning by some English fans on;

Time wasting ... I'm sure any orher team would have done exactly the same. People have short memories, remember monty and Anderson in 09 ashes? How about bilal shafayat?

Slow over rate.... England's over-rate on 5th day was the slowest throughout the test match. Also, didn't cooky get fined twice during ashes for slow over-rate?

Pitch - agree it was a disaster. But ecb only board to be punished for flat track. Trent bridge 2014. Didn't hear much complaining about that one. Although, I think the ICC should take action here too.

Sportsmanship - no idea where and what basis this has come from. Ridiculous assertion.

Overall, that was England's best chance I reckon. With Yasir back turning pitches due next two games, interesting to see how things develop. On the plus, least England won't be losing 3-0 this time

Btw, no journalist or commentator has had any issues with the above, just a minority of England fans (probably new to cricket!)

All part of the UEFA conspiracy.

If Cook had got a move on rather than play for himself England would have been in a much better position to win. He was desperate for that 300.

Kash, I was saying that from day 2, but England fans disagree. I think he should and could have upped it a bit more still playing risk free.... He also had 3 chances to get to 263, but took them well

Cook was only thinking about personal glory A14. The top players up the rate once they past 100 but he was only thinking about records.

A14 don't forget Rashid was deemed not good enough after day 2

Fair play to Rashid and moeen, both have shown their Pakistani heritage by getting the ball to turn in the 2nd innings... But let's be honest,Rashid was gifted his wickets... Pakistan always seem to let their fellow brothers who are average do well... We also made tahir look like a world beater
