OK Statos - is this the best ever bowling figures in a "1st class" test match ? 

In his one and only test. Mental.

Game over. Fecking horrendous.

Horrendous?! It’s absolutely hilarious watching England getting humiliated! 😂

What a story Boland’s debut is! Love it. England absolutely hammered. Almost a disgrace that Jimmy never got another bowl on that pitch.

I learned enough about cricket to understand when England were getting pumped, they were brutal when I lived down there.

 

I might actually watch some highlights, 6 wickets from 4 overs lol

What a humble man Scott Boland is. Loved his interview. 

I'd say cricketers usually are. Makes a change from football. 

The poor guy seemed overwhelmed.

Leg-byes 3rd equal highest score @5.

 

Skittled out for 68 and the best bowler in the world didn't take a single wicket.

 

But was pretty close to one in most of the 10 overs he bowled.

England hibsed it. 

 

Humiliated.

To be honest,bi think they Englanded it. That was beyond Hibsed it. 

Silverwood has to go and Root isn't a captain.

Possibly the worst ever performance in an Ashes match. I'd go so far as to say it negates Stokes test performance at Headingley.

I remember once the Aussies wound up England by suggesting that England were so bad at the time that they should look at changing the ashes test series to the best of 3, not the best of 5. On recent showings, it now looks like a sound proposition. ;)

Heroics by Anderson to get those 2 runs at the end meaning England equalled rather than broke their record 54 test ducks in a year.

 

237 innings and only 30 ducks. Not too bad for a number 10/11.

Jimmy Anderson batted 54 innings before his first duck. It's a record for England batsmen.

Now THAT'S the sort of thing that should go in a Christmas cracker 😁

That's Joe Root after he got a Kookaburra in the Danny McGrains.

England backs to wall again after Aussies declare. Crawley has to make most of his second life but they'll need to bat all day tomorrow plus most of Saturday to have chance to force win.

I just can't see it.

Some morning session.

BBC Test Match Special statistician

The last 53 balls of that session went for no runs and cost three wickets. In 16.5 overs, England scored 23-4 and there were two dropped catches.

 

_____________

 

Boland's last 2 sessions and he has 8 wickets for 7 runs.

 

And the 7 runs were on day 3 of the 3rd test.

 

2 for 0 in 3 maiden overs this morning.

Terrible insomnia rewarded with some unbelievably excoriating comments on the BBC website. 

Runs are coming in droves now...

 

England are galloping over the hill now!

 

After 11 overs and not a single run.

Bairstow and stokes are starting to see the ball, now. They should put a big partnership together.

 

 

Oh and Root should be removed as Captain, asap. Stop fecking about and be ruthless.

4-57 Ben has had a wee bit luck, two half chances have not missed to catch him.

Running with difficulty.

Stokes bowled, but bail stays on . LBW referral.

Bowled him and the bails stay on. :rofl:

"Essentially: Stokes shouldered arms, the ball hit the stump and the bail didn't come off.

I, truly, have no idea why that was given out lbw. Anyway, Stokes uppercuts for a couple of runs."

 

WTF ?

I'm beginning to think some England batsmen can't bat 5 day test cricket anymore. One day and 20/20 seem to have taken their patience away, too reckless.

Bairstow needs to go on a diet.

Just hit plenty boundaries and he gets a very good ton in a low number of balls faced for test cricket....
