Just looked up biggest winning margins in test cricket:

Innings and 579 runs England (903-7 d) beat Australia (201 & 123)

Yeah f*** you Aussies, declared to soon. 8)
You're sounding quite a lot like someone off SMB right now <roll>

8 innings, 200 runs, 107 of those came in 1 innings. It's early in his test career but it's not like he's a kid, there's a few decisions to be made after this test.

Cook gone as well.

We could be a decent side if we had a couple of consistent batters up the top end of the order.

Lyth needs to be dropped before his confidence is totally shattered for this level.

Make that 5. <laugh>

Stokes you plum, ground your bat. Cricket 101!!!

I was joking when I said 150 was optimistic. Now it genuinely is.

What must be going through Root's head.

"So it's all up to me again is it lads? You cronuts!"

Broad out even as I type this. Embarrassing!

Root out, but this time from an actual good ball instead of an England player f***ing up.

On a pitch that seemed to suit the batsman, England managed to utterly duck it up.

Alastair Cook mentioned yesterday that no-one wants to be 30-3

Or 34-3...
