Wouldn’t have been an issue had Nathan Lyon not fumbled the run out...

Anyway- great test- I take my hat off to any player who can win a match single handed like Stokes did. I think this series has been the equal of 2005 so far; let’s hope, from an Australian perspective, that the final result is different.

The husband is an aussie. I had assumed that the test was lost, so abandoned the coverage and tried to do the social thing to the best of my ability.

Noticed a certain amount of furtive 'phone activity, and then news of an extraordinary victory.


 

Damn.

Stokes was batting well when I went to bed.

Wow- I never knew there was a cricket thread on here; looks like it was started during the epic 2005 Ashes series. I’m assuming the audience here is mostly from North America and so this thread is pretty quiet...fair play, I’ve never warmed to baseball. 

We may be watching something quite special with Steve Smith; I hope he’s not affected too much by the blow and concussion when he eventually returns. I don’t think Jofra Archer’s conduct was against the spirit of the game, though- it was certainly no worse than what the West Indies dished out in the 70s and 80s (ironically, Archer is Barbadian). 

Steve grew up near me and plays for Sutherland in the Sydney grade cricket competition; I actually know a couple of his former team mates.

Well, unstoppable except by a fast ball to the neck . Cricket is not a gentleman's sport. I don't like this trying to hurt someone aspect of the sport, whether it is from an Aussie or a pom.

That was nice. I can't get used to the way they put a mic on a player in the field in T-20 though. They will be talking away and then "Sorry, I have to go chase a ball, back in a minute."

 
When I heard the player talk, I assumed they just fast-forwarded to a post-game interview. Having an ear-phone plugged into me while playing any sport would bug the heck out of me.

Another thrilling draw.

But seriously, who bats for a century when the objective is to kill time? (Not David Warner, "Shit, I can't stand it anymore, I'm going to bash this one up in the air so it can get caught.")
