More crap from the Pakistani fan (English when it suits).
Anderson as nearly 200 wickets away from home. Hes played 19 more tests at home than away.. so basically its pretty even. .slightly in favour at home.But to be expected,
As for Anderson being captain. another docile comment.


Not sure what the relevance of me being a pak fan is in stating the facts. Anderson taking 67% of wickets in home conditions... doesnt discredit his position as the leading test wicket taker...

As for your comment as “basically even”.... that’s a load of nonsense. Just compare him and steyn as an example;

Jimmy Anderson
Home 360 (Wickets)
Away 204
SR 49.31 (Home)
SR 67.39 (Away)

Dale Steyn
Home 243 (Wickets)
Away 178
SR 39.49 (Home)
SR 45.47 (Away)

The likes of wasim, wayward, stern, Kapil Dev have a better away record than Jimmy Anderson. McGrath is 51% and Kapil 50%

No need to get offended mate

Please please never give bairstow the captains job. Right for team bairstow bats 4 and butler keeps. Bairstow the better fielder and butler the better keeper. No brainer. Bairstow threw his rattle out the pram when he was told he wasn't keeping in the 4th test. Selfish player, not captaincy material. Butler will be the next England captain.

More runs for Burns with 78, Stoneman made 85 and he's just starting to make a few more runs of late. Would England considering bringing in the pair of them? Doubtful but you never know. Jennings got another chance so maybe they'd give Stoneman one too.

Roy now out after hitting 63 in his first championship appearance of the season at 3. Not sure whether he was due to come in down the order but was promoted thanks to the platform set as Elgar walked out at 4.

KP has backed the idea of Roy being picked for the test side.

Burns looks a dead cert for the Test side - which means he'll probably be left out!

You're right, I wouldn't be surprised if they left him out but it's nigh on impossible to leave him out. I'm just looking at the article on team of the season and these are the openers in contention...

Burns: 1241 runs at 68.94
Mitchell: 819 runs at 37.22
Libby: 650 runs at 28.26
Davies: 717 runs at 32.59
Slater: 941 runs at 42.77 (about 700 of these were for Derbyshire before Notts signed him last month)
Dent: 795 runs at 36.13
Rhodes: 724 runs at 38.10
Salt: 714 runs at 34.00

Only one other averaging over 40 and that was mostly from division 2.

Centuries for Trott and Bell, bring them back!

Bopara is on the brink of one, lets get him back too.

Trott quit england and bell never should have been dropped from the team which was a shambles.

Marcus Trescothick becomes the first fielder in 104 years to take 3 catches in successive deliveries apparently

It is only the fourth time that two bowlers from the same team have taken a hat-trick in the same first-class match with Somersets Tom Abell in first innings and Craig Overton in the second
