Poor batting display, backed up by a poor bowling attack! England are in need of reorganisation from top to bottom. I don’t like Ali but hats off to him, showed some back bone, got in and scored some runs, spite the racist attacks he has suffered from supposed England fans especially on these forums. I hope West Indies win the test, series and put an end to school boy roots captaincy!
@623 Great work again, sir! Although please don't make the same mistake as Andrew Samson (if I've spelt that correctly) & become a performing stat's monkey ;-) I feel sorry for him when they make him check everything they can come up with.
Watch Moeen will get a century and HYS boards will still be screaming to drop him before next match.
To clarify 621 (and 595), 8.6 means 6th ball of 9th over. Similarly 7.5 means 5th ball of 8th over, which I did not count as "before 8th over". If you include 8th over, it becomes lost 10 and taken 15. The two "no 2nd inns" in 621 are matches that England won by an inns. Really, numbers of cases are too small for statistical reliability, but going further back would not be about the current team.
@612 - Racism against England. Asian friends. Get a load of this jack wagon. Close on the Asian guess those. Only missed by about 7 thousand miles or so.

@617 - Make that opener. womp womp
@616 you are talking like England have a battery of world class spinners waiting in the wings, which they haven’t!
Way things are going by the time the Ashes rolls around England will be looking for their closer from the Barmy army.
He has pulled a Donald Trump!With his cameo today, Ali has blindfolded the selectors into securing a possible berth to the Ashes.
Hating on Moeen because he is brown skinned.
>racism against EnglandHave a feeling most of those ripping on Moeen are from the UK.
Nice one West Indies, play out the first hour tomorrow and then bat big. Proper test match batting!
@931035You are a breath of fresh air mate. I plough through hours and hours of stats, and drivel, and racism against England, and hatred against everything English on these cricket boards, ( our Asian friends saturate these boards ), and then along comes a guy like you to save the day. Well done mate and keep up the good work on here. P.S. I am a better cricketer than Curran.
Are they still massively in it?
