澳门线上赌博网站:英格兰对西印度群岛 - 事情发生了

劳伦斯将从上午10点30分到这里。 与此同时,为什么 。 邓肯弗莱彻也有问题。

序言:嗯,再次问好。 这已经有一段时间了,但是有什么更好的方式让自己回到OBO-land而不是在涉及Chris Gayle的外交事件中以及他对测试板球未来的 ! 安德鲁·斯特劳斯(Andrew Strauss)已经如果没有完全回击,他会非常明智地接受他自己,但他并不是在愚弄任何人。 坦率地说,整个事件都是如此 而这只是在折腾,现在任何时刻的消息......

好消息是 Gayle和Strauss抵制了在折腾时击败对方的诱惑,这对他们来说很好,尽管我不确切地说这两个人之间的微笑在任何方面都是温暖的。 但我离题了:Gayle叫了尾巴,硬币掉了下来,澳门线上赌博网站想要一只蝙蝠。 盖尔说他会做同样的事情并且坚持要他赢得比赛并保留Wisden Trophy。 哪个也一样......

亚瑟斯接受盖尔的赛前采访,这次采访的时间比正常情况略长。 一次,没有那闪烁的笑容。 事实上,他看起来非常悲惨。 这可能是西印度群岛不打击的最佳选择。 我提到他们也没改变吗? 这是一封电子邮件。 “在我今天去大学的公共汽车旅行中,有人打喷嚏,随后看到我的同行旅行者看起来非常热闹,”R Low说。 “每个人都认为他一定患过猪流感,而且我确信他们会在我们说话的时候接受检测。但情况可能会更糟:我们像盖尔一样,可能会为西印度群岛发挥作用,我敢肯定会对我们所有人来说都是一种失望。“ 现在,现在......

切斯特勒街几乎是空的。 我们被告知第一天3-5,000张门票已经提前售出,但各种因素已经说服了粉丝远离。 斯特劳斯认为,球场很坚固,但条件是阴天,所以Windies可能觉得一切都没有丢失。 但是,真的,谁会支持他们? 嗯?

盒子要打勾:对于英格兰 - 理想世界,安德鲁澳门线上赌博网站和阿利斯泰尔库克将在Lord's的第一局中的一小撮之后重新建立他们的伙伴关系; Kevin Pietersen不会落到第一球; Matt Prior将巩固他在No6的位置,以防万一 Andrew Flintoff再也没有参加过测试板球比赛。 蒂姆布雷斯南将得到一个碗; 和Phil Hughes将放弃他的公民身份并成为英国人。

Beefy声称条件是“寒冷但干燥”,他声称这是“英格兰北部的好老”的又一次胜利。 也许他没有看到明天的预测。 与此同时,“我不能动摇唠叨的感觉,洋葱,拉姆丁,斯旺听起来像亲爱的老女王妈妈可能藏在下午中午,也许有一个很好的红葡萄酒点,”安东尼皮斯说。 “必须有其他短语完全基于过去和现在的板球运动员的名字,这可能会提高一个滴度,但对于我的生活,我不能为自己的任何一个工作而烦恼。因此,我更多愿意让这个话题开始......“

安德鲁桑德森的公平点。 “Chester-le-Street对街上的切斯特来说意味着什么?” 他发脾气。 “这是一个多么垃圾的名字。这就是为什么我不参加测试...而且我缺乏刚从IPL回来的准备工作。”

Pedants一角: “英格兰有一段时间没有一个大世纪,”Mark Annear抱怨道。 “在两天半的时间里英格兰队以4分拿下650分,然后两次击败Windies,蒂姆·布雷斯南拿下10个小门,而马特·普莱特不再承认再见或丢掉一个接球?” 是的,澳大利亚提前承认了灰烬......

我们等待着那些只是略微害羞的球员 ......而他们来了 - 当Gayle带领他的球队走下展馆的台阶时没有太大的热情......

第一名结束:英格兰1-0(澳门线上赌博网站0,库克0)所以,杰罗姆泰勒让事情进行中,第一个惊喜是安德鲁澳门线上赌博网站必须挥动投球手臂后面的一些动作:鉴于观众的缺乏,这必须算非常不走运。 泰勒的第一个球长度很短,并且在球场上徘徊,完全没有太大反弹。 惊人。 然后,泰勒向阿斯卡·德席尔瓦发出了一记偏出的边线,斯特劳斯几乎没有参加比赛。 一个非常温和的开始确实。 “关于Pease先生的询问,”屡获殊荣的专栏作家Erik Petersen写道(我没骗你)。 “在肯特开设的新合作伙伴关系是一个不错的选择。并不是因为看起来特别具有男子气概的评分,但更多因为东北基调听起来像某个地方,如果迈阿密过于昂贵,你可能会放假。”

第二名:英格兰2-0(澳门线上赌博网站0,库克0)菲德尔·爱德华兹在他的开场前准备,向库克漫步并用手掌揉搓球场。 很奇怪。 简陋的安布罗斯过去常常徘徊了很长一段时间,他偶尔会分配他的魔法灰尘并疯狂地咧嘴笑,但我不太清楚爱德华兹的想法。 无论如何,这对他的开场并没有帮助,就像泰勒一样,这是无可救药的。 球场看起来很糟糕,Edwards也没有超越,这没有任何帮助。 另一个平淡无奇。 “欢迎回来,拉里,”萨姆布莱克利特说,至少为自己的喜好带来了太多的自由。 “关于为什么乘客布雷斯南仍然站在一边的任何想法?当然我们只需要四个保龄球加上Colly和Ravi。正如抵制所说的那样,得到胜利的东西。没有感情的空间。” 我认为布雷斯南本可以认为自己非常倒霉,因为格雷厄姆洋葱在主人面前被丢球并且从未放过......

第3名结束:英格兰3-0(澳门线上赌博网站0,库克0)最后泰勒让澳门线上赌博网站在一场比赛,因为球吹过外围边缘。 如果他们要重新参加这个系列赛,那么西印度群岛需要更多的新球。 一个没有球的英格兰前锋,但这是所有平庸的开始的母亲:没有侥幸逃跑,没有人看到他们没有得分。 这可能是一个有趣的哲学装腔作势。 “好吧,我几乎参加了这个测试,”埃里克彼得森当时的男人承认道。 “当欧洲央行宣布两张35英镑的门票时,我就准备和P太太一起往北走。然后我把火车票定价 - 我们两个人,诺丁汉到达勒姆,140英镑。相反,我们打败了这一点。令人欣慰的是,英国的机构比欧洲央行更加垃圾。感谢英国的火车!“

第四名:英格兰5-0(澳门线上赌博网站1,库克1)库克在第一轮比赛中得分,这是因为爱德华兹进入了盖帽,而且还有一些掌声 - 你在县城听到的那种抱歉的声音早晨。 澳门线上赌博网站通过获得丰满的切割加入了乐趣,但布兰登纳什在点上毫不费力地整理。 随着英格兰队以1.25的比分结束比赛,他不得不在比赛结束时单打比赛。 “所有板球运动员都对Twenty20赞不绝口,但让我们看看他们真的喜欢多长时间,如果击球手只能投掷他们的球棒,无论保龄球有多好,而且所有投球手都要做的就是尽力避免被禁赛每场比赛四场比赛,“安迪·斯蒂夫说,严重低估了T20格式的许多细微之处。 “Gayle是越来越多的球员之一(Sehwag,全新西兰人
团队等)根本无法再打扰局,
球在四处移动时不那么强硬。 也许他应该
只是简单地说道。“对Sehwag来说是一种苛刻......

第五名:英格兰队8-0(澳门线上赌博网站4号,库克1号)澳门线上赌博网站收集了两个不太完美的时间推进泰勒的封面,然后赶紧换了一个单打另一个不熟练的掩护。 不知何故,这不是魅力的早晨。 “有人知道Andrea Lowe的下落吗?” 亚历克斯赖特问道。 “早在2002/2003年,她就可以与Gary Naylor争夺OBO的网络报道,但她已经缺席多年了。我在2002年对她的饮食感到担忧 - 如果我没记错的话,会吃太多的奶酪和咖啡因。我希望它没有被抓住和她在一起......“啊,是的,但你有没有见过Andrea和Gary在同一个房间?

第六名:英格兰12-0(澳门线上赌博网站8,库克1)爱德华兹过度投球,并提供一点宽度,这是测试的第一个边界,因为澳门线上赌博网站非常感谢你。 不错的射门,虽然阿瑟斯指出他的体重并没有完全超过球。 击球目前看起来相当简单。 “一个哲学的装腔作势,”Rob Low说。 “如果一名英国板球运动员在切斯特街上没有人面前对阵一个不感兴趣的西印度群岛,那么他们就会有100人跑,有人关心吗?直到第一次灰烬测试才55天......”

第7局结束:英格兰16-0(澳门线上赌博网站8,库克5)也许这只是我 - 而且我接受我不是最适合衡量气氛的 - 但到目前为止早上的表现是否明显缺乏强度? 甚至来自Cook off Taylor的那个界限也是出于对第三人的开放式转向的礼貌。 “目前正为强大的萨默塞特击球的是Hildreth Trescothick,我认为这是一个面色红润,羊肉切碎的Redjacket,导致一个注定要失败的哈莱克人的合唱,然后在Rorke的漂移中被超越......”Jack Rosevear写道。

第8局结束:英格兰18-0(澳门线上赌博网站10,库克5)爱德华兹偏离澳门线上赌博网站的垫子 - 一次 - 但是结果鞭子直接对着中场球员。 正如他们所说,两边都是一个院子,那就是四个。 一个昏昏欲睡的早晨继续快速发展。 或者可能不是,尽管斯特劳斯确实通过方腿增加了一对他的双腿。 我打赌Gayle很激动他为此留下了加尔各答骑士骑士。 “我参加了第一次测试,”安东·劳伦斯承认,他刚刚参加了他的第一次AA会议。 “得到25英镑的票,度过了美好的一天,看了15个小门掉了。喝了一瓶酒,吃了一个猪肉馅饼。看不出这些火柴有什么问题。至少我能看到一些测试今年的板球,我不会这样做。“

9日结束:英格兰18-0(澳门线上赌博网站10,库克5)泰勒产生了一种美丽的东西,回到了库克,他一个人离开了,并且不会错过太多的残余。 这更像是来自Windies:让击球手猜测。 比泰勒更好的结果,即使没有人似乎已经把速度枪变回了Lord's之后的真实测量值。 “安迪·斯蒂夫显然不会看到太多的板球,”丹·约翰逊说。 “我记得Sehwag已经两次打算建立一个足够好的测试局以达到300(只有三个人中的一个来实现这一壮举)。他只拿到278个球达到300;一些英国击球手拿这么多达到100个如果这是T20打得太多的后果,那么我们应该鼓励我们的球员发挥更多。“

第10局结束:英格兰22-0(澳门线上赌博网站14,库克5)爱德华兹落后并且斯特劳斯拉了4分 - 在一个同样沉睡的球场上一个昏昏欲睡的早晨。 “为什么Jimmy Clitheroe出现在折腾处呢?” 保罗戴维斯和其他几个人问道。

11日结束:英格兰24-0(澳门线上赌博网站14,库克7)库克抨击泰勒通过两个盖子和西印度群岛只是没有让开幕式的生活不舒服。 肯定会有一些戏剧和失误,但很少会失去睡眠(因此有更多的时间来考虑盖尔)​​。 “关于埃里克彼得森的度假目的地,我一直认为丹麦凯纳里亚听起来像一个(非常)北部的加那利岛,”查尔斯考特尼笑着说。 “而且我怀疑他能以合理的价格获得火车票,所有他需要做的就是提前3个月预订,上午5点47分,站在一条腿上。”

第12局:英格兰27-0(澳门线上赌博网站16,库克7)莱昂内尔贝克取代爱德华兹,但我们再次提醒他是第一个参加测试板球的蒙特塞拉特人。 我对蒙特塞拉特情有独钟。 两年前,当我去世界杯时,我在安提瓜岛的酒店位于岛屿的西南端,这让我在蒙特塞拉特荒凉的海洋及其酝酿的火山的清晨游泳时欣赏到美景。 叹。 但是我在哪儿? 是啊:贝克在宽阔的地方滑倒,然后承认两个,因为澳门线上赌博网站将他从臀部推到了细腿,泰勒的好防守节省了两次跑步。 “关于斯特劳斯和盖尔握手的照片,我没有意识到小达伦高夫已经把它带回了球队,”大卫卡伦发出声音。

13日结束:英格兰31-0(澳门线上赌博网站16,库克11)库克可怜的射门,他从泰勒身上半截并从中途收获四次。 这不是你经常从库克看到的镜头 - 如果有的话。 泰勒的一个球然后在外面的一个院子里落地,然后沿着地面掠过。 正如Harold Bishop曾经说过的那样:“啊,Madge。” 泰勒回应着一个离开库克的珍珠,让他以笨拙的方式在外面摸索。 顶级保龄球,丑陋的击球。 “肯定亚历克斯·赖特(第5次结束)证实了他完全缺乏生活,朋友和观点的公开渴望,因为他从来不知道是谁在7年或8年前为一个不起眼的板球博客做出了贡献而从那时起他就没有听说过?” Rhodri Burridge问道,并非不公平。 “肯定不会有莱特太太吗?亚历克斯现在不应该在切斯特勒街吗?”

第14局结束:英格兰40-0(澳门线上赌博网站17,库克15)澳门线上赌博网站在饮料休息之后开始在贝克的第一球开球,并且球在Sulieman Benn的前面落在沟壑里,然后冲向一个球。 如果这种情况发生了,那将是斯特劳斯对旧的解雇。 然后,库克以更加坚定的信念开车,在贝克过度投球的情况下,通过四次额外的掩护。 然后英格兰感谢四个脚趾的礼物,因为球在Denesh Ramdin面前笨拙地反弹,然后从手套上飞向第三个人。 九点过来了! 就像IPL一样! “除了得分300两次,三次双数,平均
在测试中获得50分,并且比英格兰大多数的一天和Twenty20球员,渡槽以及29个小门的击球率都要好
Sehwag曾经为测试板球做过什么?“Neil Mackie想知道。

15日结束:英格兰44-0(澳门线上赌博网站21,库克15)这一切都非常适合英格兰队的比赛,他们只需要在几周后重新获得威斯登奖杯。 与此同时,泰勒在中段和腿上给了澳门线上赌博网站一个很好的结果:4到中宽。 “由于斯特劳斯 - 盖尔的冲突似乎是今天早上最有趣的因素,所以可能会注意到在折腾的照片中,最具威胁性的眩光显然是帽子中的流浪海胆,”Rob Young说道,其中有数百人之一你被错误的青年迷住了。 “澳门线上赌博网站至少假装看着Gayle的眼睛(看起来更像是嘴巴)而Gayle是如此战斗,他的眼睛坚定地站在草坪上!我无法想象Punter或任何澳大利亚人会是太胆小了......“

16日结束:英格兰45-0(澳门线上赌博网站21,库克16)库克得到了贝克的两次拉出射门,但是第一次直接送到爱德华兹中场,而第二次被爱德华兹挡出一次。 东北方面都很安静。 汤姆范德古赫特承认:“看看你的澳门线上赌博网站,盖尔和小学生达格勒的照片,我不确定到底发生了什么。” “他们要么在折腾之前握手,要么他们的关系降到校园标准,他们现在正在进行一场”慈悲“游戏,以决定谁对测试板球的未来是正确的。如果只是所有的成年生活和纠纷很容易解决。“

17日结束:英格兰48-0(澳门线上赌博网站21,库克19)泰勒继续,现在他绕着检票口去库克。 他开始太宽了以至于不能给他的男人带来麻烦,然后调整他的线来让库克在球上打球。 回应是对三个人的整齐推动。 “如果仔细观察,克里斯盖尔实际上正在观看Jimmie Krankie在他(她的?)头上的那个小男人的平衡,”Dan Johnson指出。

18日结束:英格兰51-0(澳门线上赌博网站22,库克19)斯特劳斯带来了最近几个低调的半世纪阵容中的一个,他轻松地甩掉了一个单打贝克。 镜头总结了伙伴关系:安静,高效,无忧无虑。 贝克的广泛总结了保龄球:匿名。 今天到目前为止只有一位少女。 “当Waru Hegg看着Strauss和Gayle在页面顶部的照片中享受温暖的握手时,他们正在看吗?” 安德鲁莫里斯问道。 好的,现在就够了。

19日结束:英格兰51-0(澳门线上赌博网站22,库克19)这是盖尔的那一刻 - 命运决定他正在向斯特劳斯打保龄球,他建议他不要忘记任何关于他的睡眠。 在我的时间里,我听到了一些奇怪的雪橇......无论如何,Gayle立即绕着检票口绕过英格兰队长的休息时间,这是可以理解的。 在你所说的所有内容之后,你不会想要向对方号码出去,不是吗? 一个可预测的少女。 “我觉得我在澳门线上赌博网站的身边比Gayle的更多,但看着那张照片,我知道哪一个我会在废品中回复它!” Leo Caroll笑了。

20日结束:英格兰65-0(澳门线上赌博网站22,库克33)库克的大力射门,他向前脚猛冲,将无害的贝克撞到了4个盖子。 正如我写的那样,贝克引发了一个内侧边缘,可以飞到四条细腿。 好球,幸运的射击 - 由于明确的清漆外套而错过了腿部残肢。 一个坚定的推进midwicket两个是更有说服力,然后库克通过额外的掩护四个:14关闭它赢得一个有利可图的利润。 “我要感谢Rhodri Buridge用他友好的话语为我提供了解决方案,”Alex Wright说,并非第一次,OBO威胁要陷入困境。 “今晚我会为我准备好的一餐哭泣。但他说的一件事是正确的:生活在香椿中,我没有理由不去Chester le Street,尽管没有朋友可以谈论,我不能利用2比1的门票优惠,我太害怕独自冒险,以防我被威尔士人的名字欺负。“

便门! Strauss c Ramdin b Gayle 26(69-1)在被裁掉四球之后,Gayle移除了澳门线上赌博网站! 好吧,所以这是一次幸运的解雇,斯特劳斯在一次尝试扫射时得到了一个小手套,拉姆丁急剧地向腿部移动,但是他们都算了! 现在有充足的时间考虑克里斯......“刚才意识到Geraint Jones希望召回,”Andrew Sanderon说道。

21日结束:英格兰队69-1(Cook 33,Bopara 0)所以,Ravi可以在三局比赛中三次成功吗? 还是我非常蛮勇地跳枪? “当然,错误的年轻人是瑞奇庞特迷你我,”阿里沙阿说。 “如果盖尔和澳门线上赌博网站没有把它拿下来,他会高兴地啃着他的小指。” 嘎。

第22局结束:英格兰70-1(库克34,Bopara 0)两名旋转者现在在Benn替换贝克的情况下进攻,而库克用一个强有力的底手让他在中路打成一个单打。 “在板球主题上,”Dominic Riches说,有争议。 “这不是我们对当前开放合作伙伴关系的唠叨吗?一个显然不情愿的反对意见,我们真正想要的是在第一场比赛中100分来打破它们。我无法想象Aus / Ind / SA的开场白将会是这么有礼貌。“ 我不知道 - 他们在测试的第一天早上三点就得分......

23日结束:英格兰72-1(Cook 35,Bopara 1)希望你喜欢Jimmy Krankie / Young Dazzler / Warren Hegg / Mini-Me的新照片。 我们的目标是取悦。 Gayle的两首单曲结束了。 “就物理尺寸而言,可能是Gayle,如果它出现了,”Andrew Robertson说道,潜在的打击。 “就英格兰队和W.Indies队之间的大规模争吵而言,我认为英格兰队会赢得比赛。也许需要像比较一样的比赛。将Ha​​rmison作为第12人,洋葱队会用几只眼睛和Pietersen的淘汰赛会结束它。“

24日结束:英格兰72-1(Cook 35,Bopara 1)还有其他人注意到在Bopara的上唇等待投球手的时候出现了无意识的冷笑吗? 必须是我们一直听到的内心信心。 不过,那是Benn的少女。 “Alex Wright,”Alex Warwick说。 “我认为迈克尔欧文应该在接下来的几周内获得自由,也许你可以和他一起去板球?” 非常热门。

25日结束:英格兰72-1(库克35,Bopara 1)库克从盖尔身上打出了一个少女,但是在他刚刚在德文史密斯面前滑倒他的最后一球之前。 转过身 - 格雷姆斯旺将会感兴趣。 “请告诉Alex我很抱歉,”Rhodri Hitman Burridge说。 “我觉得很糟糕。准备好的饭菜味道不好而且没有被淡化,如果我意识到他必须住在纽卡斯尔,我就会解雇那个可怜的小伙子。”

26日结束:英格兰72-1(Cook 35,Bopara 1)随着澳门线上赌博网站的检票口和两个旋转器的引入,比赛已经变得安静了。 但如果英格兰在没有进一步损失的情况下到达午餐,他们会很开心。 现在,Benn连续三名少女队对阵Bopara。 “也许布雷斯南因为他的争吵能力而加入团队,”Edward Banister指出。 “他是个小伙伴。” 我想这是一个解释。

27日结束:英格兰队74-1(Cook 36,Bopara 2)库克打破了少女的阵容,快速单打到中场,盖尔,然后由Bopara为一个单腿做长腿。 “如果拉维B确实连续第三次获得测试世纪,那么他就会成功
新的克里斯·布罗德?“伊恩·科普斯塔克感到很奇怪。”他可以期待作为顶级裁判持续成名。“或者甚至可能是比赛裁判......

28日结束:英格兰74-1(Cook 36,Bopara 2) Andy Bull将在午餐后成为你的亲切主持人,所以请从现在开始将所有的事情转发给[email protected] ,一定要保存你最好的东西对我来说,当我回到茶后。 不用说,那是从本恩到博帕拉的少女。

29日结束:英格兰78-1(Cook 39,Bopara 3)库克向后倾斜,迫使Gayle穿过盖子两次,然后将他从腿上扯下来。 他今天早上打得很好。 现在他需要坚持下去 - 我想我们之前可能已经说过了。 午餐之前还有一段时间,这意味着 - 震惊,恐怖 - 我们会在会议中有30个。

30日结束:英格兰85-1(Cook 39,Bopara 9) Bopara心情愉快地进入午餐,Benn有四次可爱的切入,然后内侧边缘有几条条纹。 尽管现在臭名昭着的年轻吉祥物做出了最大的努力来分散他的注意力,英格兰本可以在折腾时采取这种做法。 我会留下一些快乐的消息。 “Rhodri,道歉接受了,”宽宏大量的Alex Wright写道。 “很高兴知道你也经历过即食餐的压榨孤独。”

午餐

下午大家。 怎么办?

“同事们应该为自己感到羞耻,”贾斯汀巴雷特抱怨道,“嘲笑那个可怜的吉祥物。毕竟,达勒姆还不得不掏钱给Dirty Dozen和Airwolf坚定的欧内斯特·博格尼恩加入一些好莱坞闪电战到赛前诉讼,他们所能做的只是嘲笑。悲伤。“

欧内斯特·博格宁。 多好的人啊。 我想你们在上周的“星期日泰晤士报上都读过吗? 你当然做到了。 这是必不可少的阅读。 事实上,我越来越开始怀疑这是任何英国报纸唯一值得阅读的东西。 当然,除了卫报之外。 我离题了。 本周,正如你所知,Winner取代任何尝试与他的老朋友Borgnine一起讨论他正在吃的食物或餐馆。 选择报价:

“只有他[Borgnine]敲门的人才是前妻Ethel Merman。她讨厌他比她更有名。在太平洋度蜜月时,她在聚会上告诉他。”夫人,我离开这里,“厄尼说,并在他的蜜月中走了出来。“

并且,在80年代的电视连续剧Airwolf上:

“厄尼非常善良,当他提到他与Jan-Michael Vincent合作的Airwolf电视连续剧时,他只写Jan-Michael'很难。他不会从大篷车里出来10个小时 - 毒品,酒精,”Ernie说道。午餐。 “我们坐在机场等待他的位置。” 当我指导他进入The Mechanic时,Jan-Michael很好。 后来他多次进入康复中心,撞毁他的车并损坏了他的声带。 现在他养马了。“

Winner和Borgnine,最后一起印刷。

这是Ian Copestake: “统计数据表明,库克喜欢用他的靴子填充他的靴子,他在几个世纪的大部分时间都对阵他们。写作让我感觉像是一个真正的journo,所以我的下一个任务是否可以采访 ? “ 不可以。你可以在玫瑰碗中写一篇200字的Michael Carberry新闻发布会报告,确保你提到“他真的喜欢为英格兰队效力”。 真正的新闻业,正如刚才所说的那样,必须引用曾经是个人熟人的旧时好莱坞明星。

好吧,这让你们全部闭嘴。

来自Gayle的强烈声明,在第一天午餐前将自己带到第二次更换。 任何人都会认为人们一直质疑他对比赛的兴趣。

31日结束:英格兰86-1(Cook 39,Bopara 9)
盖尔在午餐后开放。 如果这种趋势继续下去,这可能是一个漫长而缓慢的下午的板球运动,因为Gayle转动他的兼职旋转器和中等速度的旋转器直到新球到来。 库克轻轻一挥,跑到腿边,就是这样。 詹姆斯·安德鲁斯写道:“真正的新闻事业并非如此,”詹姆斯·安德鲁斯写道,“你们正在谈论体育新闻。真正的新闻报道是关于尽可能多的文化参考和双关语,尽可能地复制并看看你是否编辑删除它们那个和免费的午餐。以及对一切的无休止的道德愤怒感。“

32日结束:英格兰92-1(库克41,波帕拉13)
另一端来自苏利曼本恩。 Bopara将一对支架从连续的球上覆盖。 第一局的视频集锦已经到来。 只要你住在英国,你就可以在页面底部找到它们。

第33局:英格兰96-1(库克42,波帕拉17)
Gayle绕着检票口转了一圈,在库克单腿到腿后,Gayle咆哮着,因为莱昂内尔贝克在封面上制作了一块糟糕的地面守卫,给Bopara送了四次。 “实际上,迈克尔·温纳不是餐厅审查贸易的G抵制吗?” 艾瑞克·彼得森(Erik Petersen)沉思道,“至少在二十年之前,他们漫无目的地谈论事件和人。然后,在一个几乎预期结束的地方,他被激发了对实际(Expletive)点的模糊刺激。而且,他的交易时间很长 - 在职业生涯中,人们似乎记得比以往任何时候都更好。“ 嗨,老兄。 不要敲死亡之愿。 或者是肮脏的周末。 或赢得吨吨:拯救好莱坞的狗。 或任何其他精美的Winner制作。

34日结束:英格兰队99-1(Cook 43,Bopara 19)
库克将Benn的第一个球带走了一个单一的球,然后Bopara又将另外两个球击到了球棒的脚趾末端的同一区域。 以下是加里·奈勒:“对于国会议员的费用清单,尽可能高的竞标并不是真正的新闻报道,然后日复一日地挤压它,而极右翼在主流政党不舒服的背后笑了起来,准备现金 - 在完全缺乏透视的情况下,二十四小时的媒体,电话和租房一直在讲述这个故事吗?

35日结束:英格兰队106-1(Cook 46,Bopara 23)
甚至Gayle也有足够的保龄球,而且,谢天谢地,他们带回了Fidel Edwards。 不幸的是,球场没有节奏,没有空中挥杆,菲德尔看起来不仅有点无能为力。 看看洋葱能在这个球场上做些什么会很有意思。 库克继续看起来很精致,向前倾斜并向三个方向向后延伸到后方广场,在那里,贝克通过潜水挽救一个人来赎回他们两个令人震惊的努力。 然后Bopara以一种让Atherton发出咕噜声的风格直奔长途车道。

36日结束:英格兰107-1(Cook 47,Bopara 23)
在边界一侧,有两位年轻女士穿着狂欢节装扮,在轻快的风中颤抖着。 他们被雇来为加勒比地区的气氛提供支持。 它们很漂亮,这是我见过的最令人沮丧的事情之一。 Liz Campbell抱怨说:“我住在英国,但是进一步阻碍观看亮点”,我的计算机服务器绝对相信我住在比利时并且不断告诫我使用Flemish来试图查看英语板球的亮点。至少这就是我认为它试图说的。“

37日结束:英格兰108-1(Cook 48,Bopara 23)
“你是迈克尔·温纳,”贾斯汀·巴雷特写道,在一封电子邮件中最侮辱性的开场之一,“我知道,这不是一个好主意,而是和我在一起。你会在即将到来的超级暴力蟋蟀剥削电影中投入谁?一开始,我向Lee Van Cleef提供Dennis Lillee。“ Ronnie Irani是他自己? 爱德华兹管理着五个点球,库克每次接球时都会挑选外野手,但是第六球很短,库克很难将球拉到一个球。

38日结束:英格兰115-1(Cook 51,Bopara 28)
库克以快速奔跑的三人筹集了他的五十岁,然后Bopara将最薄的边缘切成四条细腿。 Gareth Fitzgerald有话要说:“好吧,我知道结果是全部和最终的结果,英国板球必须将每场比赛视为对抗压倒性优势的勇敢斗争,但这种'挤奶'的Benn,Gayle和Nash当他出现时毫无意义。澳大利亚人是否会以这样的速度蹒跚而行?没有机会,他们放弃了所有这些namby-pamby的警惕,并对集体Windies臀部施加了一点大脚趾。在那里,并为这些旋转器雕刻16-an-over。“ 啊,你让它听起来如此简单。 但是,是的,你所说的有一些道理。 布兰登·纳什在中期局中成为一名控球投球手的出现,是过去五场测试中比较奇怪的发展之一。

第39名:英格兰队120-1(Cook 54,Bopara 30)
库克减少了另外三次运行,这次是用一个清脆的驱动器来额外覆盖。 “板球剥削电影?” 詹姆斯·杰克逊问道, 。它被称为'我知道你去年夏天有多少次进球',这就是标语:一个板球队被一个暴走的连环杀手用一把锋利的板球手套和一堆削尖的树桩解雇。对于他20年前忍受的煎熬,杀手就一个接一个地报复。“

我很惊讶。 我怎么没看过这部电影? 有没有人有过看到这件事的不幸?

第40名:英格兰队120-1(Cook 54,Bopara 30)
我仍然迷失方向。


其实这看起来有点可怕不是吗? 我感觉到Winner的工作。

第41位:英格兰队123-1(Cook 58,Bopara 30)
好哇! 我找到 。 注意它包含不良语言,暴力和裸露。 这是一个利用电影。 你有什么期望?

42nd over: England 125-1 (Cook 58, Bopara 30)
"There's an honourable tradition of cricket exploitation movies," fills in Chris Hatton while I watch the trailer for I Know How Many Runs You Scored Last Summer for the fifth time, "for example the one where Chris Gayle returns to a remote Caribbean island to find himself burned to death by the locals (The Wicket Man). The British tradition is more tame, for example the one about Mike Atherton allegedly spitting something illegal on the ball to promote swing (Gulp Friction). I really must do some work now..." You and me both.

43rd over: England 127-1 (Cook 59, Bopara 31)
"I live in Australia, I have never even heard of it," Andrew Jolly assures me, "I know what I will be doing on Saturday afternoon though, and that is hunting for it in the bargain bins - then watching said film." There is, least I forget myself entirely, also some cricket going on, Cook and Bopara exchanging quick singles off Baker.

44th over: England 129-1 (Cook 59, Bopara 32)
Just a solitary single from Benn's latest over. John Starbuck is still lining people up on his casting couch: "Bruce Willis (in his younger days) as Brian Close, Tom Cruise as Geraint Jones, Sean Bean as Fred Trueman, David Niven as CB Fry."

45th over: England 131-1 (Cook 59, Bopara 34)
Baker's wayward line takes the ball out to leg stump, and Bopara knocks two casual runs away square. Baker produces a perfunctory LBW appeal for a ball that was going to pass a foot or so over the top of the stumps.

46th over: England 136-1 (Cook 59, Bopara 34)
Four byes disappear down the leg side, Bopara playing and missing an ungainly sweep. "Per Amazon, I Know How Many Runs You Scored Last Summer (or "Runs" as we in the know call it) will be available on DVD from 29 June" mourns Tom Hopkins, "Life until then will have no meaning." Readers, I promise you a review of that movie just as soon as I can get my hands on a copy. It'll make a fine double-header with the cricket-themed concept album I was banging on about last week.

47th over: England 139-1 (Cook 61, Bopara 35)
"Russell Crowe is surely a shoo-in for Mike Gatting in Winner's new exploitation movie," pipes up Chris Bourne, "He can gun down international terrorist umpires with his grenade launching cricket bat. Gian Maria Volonte [sorry - who?] could be effective as Sir Allen Stanford, the paranoid megalomaniac villain on a mission to destroy cricket from his secret Caribbean compound. Sylvester Stallone is obviously the American football player drafted in to solve England's wicket-keeping problems." Chris goes on to tell a very funny anecdote from "his time as a real journalist" about an encounter with Christopher Reeve, but I'm not sure I've the gall to print it. If you want to know, meet me behind the bikeshed later on today and I'll pass it around on a post-it. By-the-bye, Russell Crowe is actually quite an accomplished cricketer. He's a cousin of NZ legend Martin, and in fact the whole Crowe family have been known to get together to play as a Crowe XI. They played a match against Malta when Russ was filming Gladiator. And, ahh, that's drinks.

48th over: England 139-1 (Cook 61, Bopara 35)
Benn's unbroken spell continues with another maiden. "Is this a new genre?" asks Beth Connor, "the six-ploitation flick?"

49th over: England 147-1 (Cook 61, Bopara 43)
Baker drops short, and Bopara cracks a pull through mid-wicket for four. The over becomes a positive run fest as the next ball flies off the outside edge for four away past the slips. "Pace Beth Connor," writes Chris Hatton, "I thought the six-ploitation flick was KP's favourite shot?" He pauses before adding, "No, the work thing's not happening..." Tell me about it.

50th over: England 150-1 (Cook 63, Bopara 44)
"In the wild there are many ways to die - none more unpleasant than being ripped apart by some nutter in his cricket kit." I still can't believe someone paid for that movie to be made. Singles go to and fro in the field, Cook taking two to square leg and Bopara another a little finer.

51st over: England 155-1 (Cook 68, Bopara 44)
Baker switches around the wicket, and Cook promptly plays a glorious back-foot force away for four past point.

52nd over: England 162-1 (Cook 69, Bopara 50)
Benn makes a desultory lbw appeal against Cook, who gives him an amused smile in response. Bopara then leans out a long way to square drive two to deep cover. He raises his fifty with the very next ball, glancing four runs to fine leg. He acknowledges the muted applause - the ground is almost empty - with a nonchalant wave of his bat.

53rd over: England 162-1 (Cook 69, Bopara 50)
The weather forecast, for those of you who like to know such things, is terrible tomorrow, with heavy rain due to arrive in the afternoon. It's pretty poor over the weekend too, so we may even get a full five days out of this game. A maiden from Baker, holding to a line outside off stump. Cook connects with one or two of them, but they fly straight to fielders.

54th over: England 167-1 (Cook 73, Bopara 50)
At last a shot in anger from Cook, who was in danger of turning to stone at the crease. He strides across to the off and swats a drive across the line to force the ball through long-on for four.

55th over: England 171-1 (Cook 73, Bopara 54)
机会! A palpable chance! But Ramdin spills it behind the stumps. Bopara glanced Baker's first ball fine past leg stump, Ramdin leapt across and got his glove to it, but couldn't cling on and the ball ran away for four.

56th over: England 175-1 (Cook 78, Bopara 55)
Gayle decides to bring himself back into the attack after 17 straight over from Benn. Cook dinks a couple away to leg. A poor misfield at mid-off from Taylor allows Cook to take two from a neat drive. He regathers himself and throws in a loose return. Gayle can't be fussed to field the ball, but sticks out an arm quite idly and allows it to bounce past away towards square leg.

57th over: England 177-1 (Cook 79, Bopara 55)
and Cook prods a single to cover.

58th over: England 180-1 (Cook 80, Bopara 56)
These two have put on 111 now, looking fairly unflustered by everything the West Indians have produced. "An honest assessment please: how boring has this test been so far?" asks Tom Cole. Put it this way: the ground is about one-quarter full, and we've had 27 overs of spin on the first day of an early May Test in England. The only reason that exists for this Test to be being played is the contract between Sky and the ECB, stipulating a minimum of seven Tests for the summer.

59th over: England 180-1 (Cook 80, Bopara 56)
A maiden over this, during which Bumble surveys the scene in front of him and bleakly mutters "it's grim out there".

60th over: England 181-1 (Cook 81, Bopara 57)
Here's Ranil Dissanayake on the pressing issue of the day - apart from the kid in the photograph, the six-ploitation movie scene, Michael Winner and Ernest Borgnine - while I coast into lunch "Isn't what Chris Gayle said pretty much exactly what we expected? The ECB are being rogered by Sky into having a pointless two test series; WICB needs cash and accepts. Gayle loses out big time cash-wise, and has to play a pointless series in the cold when he could be swanning around Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Wouldn't you be a bit put out? And we should be grateful to both him and Jacob Oram for making it clear that they would put 20/20 ahead of tests. It's only that kind of honesty that will wake us up to a real threat. A series like Australia vs. South Africa will proselytise for test cricket - four tests, good pitches, good weather. A series like this will hasten it's demise: two tests, no crowds, crap weather, poor motivation. Time to start talking about the elephant, I think."

61st over: England 183-1 (Cook 81, Bopara 59)
Baker is on again. I've no idea why when he's already bowled five more overs than either Taylor or Edwards. Bopara takes two from his third ball with a flick to leg, but otherwise it's a barren over for England.

62nd over: England 184-1 (Cook 82, Bopara 59)
Gayle takes us into the Tea break, hustling through another six balls of filler. You could say much the same about me of course. I'm done for the day, but I'll be back tomorrow. Lawrence will be back after the Tea break, so go ahead and email your thoughts to him at [email protected] . Cheerio。

Lawrence here again. Ravi's going to do it, isn't he? A third straight hundred. By the time the Ashes comes round, he's going to think Test cricket's a doddle. "Ravi is a tick away from averaging 50 in Test cricket," points out Gary Naylor. "The new King Viv! Well, maybe."

63rd over: England 187-1 (Cook 83, Bopara 60) West Indies could stay in this game with a few quick wickets after tea, so what does Chris Gayle do? That's right: he throws the ball to Lendl Simmons, the archetypal dibbly-dobbler. Good grief, it's like watching a poor man's Brendon Nash wasting entire sessions in the Caribbean. The batsmen exchange singles, Bopara with a slightly uppish drive, and there's a leg-side bye too. Very, very anodyne indeed. "Can we have a ban on anyone taking the pi$$ out of Essex's already-faltering promotion chase this year?" says Rory MacQueen, lashing out at a theme that I'm assured is yet to crop up today. "Given that England's batting would struggle to reach 300 on a shirtfront without these two..."

64th over: England 189-1 (Cook 84, Bopara 61) Ah, this is more like it: Jerome Taylor. But Cooks rolls the wrists to work a single to wide mid-on, a shot he likes very much, and Bopara turns him off his hip for one more. Cook then nibbles at one from round the wicket that leaves him and swings once it's passed the bat - for a moment there it looked like he might have nicked it. But only for a moment. "As someone who visits this site every few hours I always play the prediction game," explains Jonathan Bradley, not beginning promisingly. "I'm usually quite successful when England are batting, always opting for worst case scenarios, like 93-7 or 7 all out, or if the opposition is in then I'll opt for 223-1. But this current mini series is buggering up my personal averages." I'll pass on your concerns to Andy Flower.

65th over: England 194-1 (Cook 84, Bopara 65) Simmons continues at 75mph, much to the delight of England, and Bopara simply creams him through extra cover for four. Fine preparation for Australia, this. "What was Ian Bell's average before the 2005 Ashes series again?" asks James Boon, pouring cold water on the excitement of Bopara nudging 50. I believe it was just the 297. Oh happy days...

66th over: England 196-1 (Cook 84, Bopara 67) Bopara works Taylor through midwicket for a couple, but you still sense West Indies are going through the motions. Does any side sulk more effectively than them? Honestly, their captain should be Sourav Ganguly in Kolkata Knight Riders-jilted mode. "All right, I know the Windies aren't putting the wind up anyone but England should be praised for slamming them in the first Test and
batting faultlessly in this one," says Andrew Robertson, who then spoils a valid point with a stomach-churning cliche. "They can only beat what's in front
of them."

67th over: England 201-1 (Cook 85, Bopara 71) On and on go the Essex boys - and there's a remarkable shot from Bopara. It looked as if Simmons was about to do him with the yorker, but Bopara - falling over to the off-side - got bat on ball and watched it disappear through very wide mid-on for four. Modern bats, eh? That, though, was the England 200. Nice and easy. "Speaking of Bell, he must be gutted," points out Mark Willingham. "This game's perfectly set-up for him to come in at 350-4 and score 78 attractive, pressure-less runs that would have secured him his place for another 20 Tests."

68th over: England 206-1 (Cook 90, Bopara 71) Lovely shot from Cook, who leans back to guide Taylor backward of point for four more. A ninth Test hundred is his for the taking, surely. Half the battle must be convincing himself to be up for the fight, so half-baked is the effort of the West Indians.

69th over: England 210-1 (Cook 94, Bopara 71) Cook clips Simmons - yes, he's still bowling - through midwicket for four, and will be thrilled Gayle is persisting with his medium-pacer. In these instances it's a question of milking, rather than destroying, the bloke you want to keep bowling: the equivalent of Clive Lloyd deliberately dropping Geoff Boycott in the 1979 World Cup final. If you believe he really did... "Has no one realised that Cook looks to be heading into trouble?" asks Andrew Sanderson. "Solid half-century, looks well-set - this is most definitely brown-trouser time." That monkey clambered off his back in Barbados, Andrew. Fear not.

70th over: England 214-1 (Cook 95, Bopara 73) Nudges and dabs and this and that bring four off Taylor's over. "There's nothing so boring as England doing well eh?" writes Rich Cross, who I can only assume is being sarcastic. "Enjoy it while it lasts!" Or maybe he's an Aussie. Either way, I think the point is that this all feels rather bloodless. It doesn't feel like a top-class sporting contest in which both sides are putting their bodies and souls on the line. The Wisden Trophy deserves better (and it probably deserves better than a two-Test series, but that's another matter).

71st over: England 219-1 (Cook 96, Bopara 75) On comes Sulieman Benn in place of Simmons and he immediately hurries Bopara with one that goes straight on. But a quick single is followed by a sickening delivery that barely hits the cut strip on the off-side and scoots away for an extra wide off Ramdin's gloves. England are taking the quick singles well now - and that's the 150 stand at almost exactly three an over. "Don't mean to sound churlish regarding Andrew Robertson's comments, but "slamming" the WI?" asks Gareth Fitzgerald. "Call me slightly modern, but I always felt when any team was going at the scintillating rate of slightly less than three an over, against a load of part-time, dibbly-dobbly, namby-pamby pie-throwers, they weren't really putting the boots to the opposition." Slightly modern.

72nd over: England 226-1 (Cook 99, Bopara 75) Cook moves to 97 with a quick single to mid-off from a Taylor no-ball, then Bopara drives sweetly down the ground for three. Cook cuts for two to move to 99, then thinks about a suicidal single to mid-on. Bopara hares off, but is sent back quickly enough to avert disaster. Smiles are exchanged. "I don't think Chris Gayle's comments signify the death of Test cricket," says Arthur Centino, as a nation breathes again. "I do, however, feel that the sight of "Run-Machine" Ally Cook bashing a blistering two-and-a-half session ninety against the bowling giants of Gayle, Benn, Simmons and Baker will surely have fan interest in Twenty20 soaring. England should be destroying this sorry lot." I'd say they're doing a pretty effective job!

73rd over: England 235-1 (Cook 107, Bopara 76) Bopara drops Benn into the leg-side for a single, so Cook will get another crack at reaching three figures... and he does at the first time of asking, mowing a ball through the man at midwicket for four to move to his ninth Test hundred, in 209 balls and with 11 fours. Memorable it has not been; effective it has. And I'll stop talking like Yoda now as Cook hammers the next ball through point for four more. Benn looks disgusted with himself. "I have never been so insulted - an Aussie indeed!" fumes Richard Cross. "Totally agreed though that the WI performance and the empty ground and the freeezing cold don't really add up to the great sporting event a Test match should be. Still, you have to admit it really does make a change!" Yeessss....

74th over: England 237-1 (Cook 108, Bopara 77) Er, it's Lendl Simmons again. I suppose Gayle is trying to hurry through to the second new ball, as much as he hurries through to anything. Or perhaps Simmons falls into the category of partnership-breaker, although a record of nine first-class wickets in 61 matches doesn't necessarily back that up. "Isn't the problem down to all these fiddly little series?" Matt Delargy问道。 "We play at their house for a bit, lose, then they come round to our house and we play again for a bit, winning this time? It's like the Premier League
title being handed out every month. I don't know why didn't they roll
the two series into one, having half in the Windies and half here.
would still be all to play for and people might actually shell out to
watch, even so early in the 'summer', and by summer I mean late spring."

75th over: England 239-1 (Cook 109, Bopara 81) Just when you thought no one was going to defend Chris Gayle, in steps . Apologies for Bopara jumping to 81: I must have missed some runs somewhere along the line. 啧啧。 Two off that Benn over.

76th over: England 242-1 (Cook 109, Bopara 84) Bopara may never get a better chance - let alone another chance - to score three successive Test hundreds. Simmons is still bowling and the Windies appear to be at his mercy as he tucks three more through midwicket. That should have been two, but that was a very slack piece of fielding from whoever that was - Devon Smith possibly. "Please stop showing emails from people who are unhappy with actually watching a solid England performance," says Ian Truman. "True, it's not thrilling exciting stuff but I don't care, I'm enjoying watching Cook (slowly) working his way back into form and watching Ravi hopefully helping himself to some easy runs before the tough stuff starts. It makes a pleasant change from getting depressed watching collapses and opposition run gluts."

77th over: England 257-1 (Cook 109, Bopara 99) Whatever Bopara had at the drinks break - can I have some of it too please? After defending Benn's first ball, he goes four, six, four (the latter providing the merest hint of a caught and bowled chance) all down the ground and suddenly finds himself on 98. The next ball is tucked to backward square for a single. Classy stuff from Ravi, even if the third of the boundaries was a little risky. But now he has the strike.

78th over: England 258-1 (Cook 109, Bopara 100) Simmons serves up an utter pie outside off, but Bopara doesn't care. He almost falls over trying to get bat to ball, but he succeeds and trots through for a third successive hundred - the first England batsman to achieve the feat in Tests since Graham Gooch in 1990. Boycott, Compton and Sutcliffe have done it before him. What a list! And what a player Ravi could become. Or possibly already is. "So just how many records do we think Ali Cook is going to break in his career?" asks Tom Bowtell. "If he maintains his current trajectory for another 12.5 seasons, until he is 37, he'll be on for a total of 14,784 runs and exactly 41.1428 centuries."

79th over: England 263-1 (Cook 109, Bopara 105) Bopara is flying now and cut the first ball of Benn's new over to third man for four. Most of his boundaries today have come on the off-side, with plenty of dabs for one to leg. He certainly knows his own game, although one cut shot in that over ricochets off the bottom edge and into the pads of Ramdin. A technical chance, no more. "Is this really such a different team to the one that ground out a series victory in the Caribbean so recently?" asks Luke Living. "OK, so that series didn't exactly set test cricket alight either, but what has suddenly turned the West Indies into such a 'sorry lot'? Is it just the apathy?"

80th over: England 265-1 (Cook 109, Bopara 107) Simmons is still bowling: two off the over. Groan. "I don't think commentators constantly saying "everything must be done to preserve Test cricket" is helping anything," says Thomas Carver. "In fact I think it is damaging Test cricket's image by making it sound like some comatose patient that needs its life support machine to survive. Test cricket does not need "preserving" any more than Christmas needs "preserving". It Test cricket gets boring then people won't watch it, and deservedly so. A bit like Woolworths being rubbish and going bankrupt, despite calls to preserve it. The fact is that when Test cricket is good it is amazing and it will continue to be amazing when there are a couple of evenly matched teams slugging it out on decent wicket - and then people will watch it, irrespective of how many crappy games there were before. The eighties had some spectacularly boring matches and series but people kept watching the interesting games." 这是一个公平的观点。

81st over: England 271-1 (Cook 110, Bopara 107)
has written about Alastair Cook, who is almost cleaned up there by Fidel Edwards' opening offering of a new spell (still with the old ball) - a wild near-beamer that disappears for five wides. That rather sums things up. "Don't know about you, but this isn't so boring?" asks Jonny Sultoon. "Watching these two smash Lee, McGill, Kasper and Gillespie to all parts in August 05 and now doing it in a Test match four years late featuring the might of Simmons, Nash, Baker and Gayle is quite gratifying isn't it? Oh."

82nd over: England 272-1 (Cook 111, Bopara 107) Still no second new ball; still Simmons. What a strange old day. Cook pinches a single, and he must now be thinking in terms of a Test best. The highest of his previous eight hundreds was the 139 not out he made at Bridgetown earlier this year, but that really isn't good enough for an opener. "Pardon the intrusion and one may be incorrect," writes Joe Melia, "but didn't Ian Bell get 3 consecutive hundreds against Pakistan in 2006?" Ah yes, but that was in successive Tests . Bopara has done in successive innings - even more prolific.

83rd over: England 277-1 (Cook 115, Bopara 107) Edwards now has the second new cherry and he immediately forces an ungainly prod out of Cook, whose job begins all over again here. His answer? A flowing cover-drive for four. "Ah, Richie Richardson," reminsices John Marshall. "One of a long-ish line of Yorkshire's overseas players who have given so much to the county's younger players. Richie told Darren Gough to stop f*nnying about with medium pace and just to bowl fast; Jason Gillespie gave sage advice to Tim Bresnan on how to be a Test cricketer; and Boof Lehmann taught them how to smoke and drink. (With apologies to Boof, I know he was a genius really)."

84th over: England 279-1 (Cook 116, Bopara 108) Lionel Baker takes the new ball at the other end, but there's very little doing as Gayle looks on, hands deep in pockets and whistling in the wind. 两个关了。 "As a stern advocate of Michael Vaughan's reinstatement in the side, might you be able to let us know whether Bopara's recent performances have changed your mind on the matter?" asks Billy Benros. "Not that it matters what anyone thinks now. Barring injury, he must be guaranteed a place for the Ashes. Right?!!" Right! You can't drop him now, and of course he doesn't deserve to be, although I still say No3 against the Australians is a very tough position indeed for a young fella, however well he's playing against West Indies. Good luck to him though. Vaughan's got next to no hope now.

85th over: England 282-1 (Cook 118, Bopara 108) Cook open-faces Edwards to third man for two, and then the bowler oversteps as England move inexorably towards 300. It's been a stroll today, it really has. "Has anyone suggested that Chris Gayle is deliberately setting up the most boring game of cricket in years to kill Test cricket and justify his comments?" asks Mark Ireland. "It's like when I used to smash the ball over the fence when I got bored of playing cricket with my brother."

便门! Bopara b Baker 108 (282-2) At last, some respite! Baker brings one back into Bopara, who plays forward and is gated by a beauty that pegs back off-stump.

86th over: England 282-2 (Cook 118, Anderson 0) So, that was a stand of 213 between the two Essex lads... what's this! Jimmy Anderson! Oh for goodness' sake. It's 282 for two, and still they feel the need for a nightwatchman...

87th over: England 290-2 (Cook 119, Anderson 0) Bopara studies his dismissal on the analyst's laptop and small gesture with his hand indicates he was done by late movement. 这是一个很好的球。 Edwards welcomes Anderson by hitting him on the glove as he turns away and then follows through for a few words. He sconed him at Lord's, and I'm not sure the two are on each others' Christmas-card lists. Anderson just ignores him, and is then happy to take four leg-byes off the third no-ball of the over. Fidel doesn't like it, but he's going to have to lump it.

88th over: England 291-2 (Cook 120, Anderson 0) Want to listen to the now infamous Gayle interview. 然后点击 。 In other absurdities, I think I'm right in saying Anderson is yet to score a Test duck. The poor bloke keeps getting used as a punchbag for frustrated West Indies quicks - specifically, Edwards - as another long day comes to a close, although Baker in that over was less malevolent. After bowling 62 overs in two sessions, West Indies have slammed on the breaks since tea...

89th over: England 298-2 (Cook 126, Anderson 0) Edwards oversteps again and is then nurdled to third man for four by Cook, who now needs 16 more for a career-best. Make that 14 as Cook tucks a couple off his pads, then turns down a single off the last ball to allow his nightwatchman to protect him. 嗯。 "I disagree with the use of nightwatchmen in almost every situation (and hasten to add that this includes the present)," declares Colin Orr. "I can perhaps see the thinking of Strauss/Flower here though - could they possibly be thinking of tomorrow morning and the use of Anderson (along with Cook) to see off the new ball and so not expose Pietersen? Overly cautious perhaps, but logical..." Bah. It's the kind of conservatism that cost England the Antigua Test. Not that it should make any difference here.

90th over: England 302-2 (Cook 126, Anderson 4) Anderson does his job with a flourish, cutting Baker to the boundary and walking off with a smile on his face. It's been England's - and Essex's day - and this series is now surely theirs. The worst that can happen from here, barring a miraculous collapse and a sudden show of interest from Chris Gayle, is a draw, and that will be enough to regain the Wisden Trophy. 感谢您的所有电子邮件和晚安。
