Dear God

So, I'm by no means a cricket expert, but this game started at, what, 10.30a.m.?

 

I'm also not sure what the climactic situation is in St John's Wood.

 

But surely, no matter how good the track is, if you win the toss you'll bat second?

 

As that first hour, hour and a half, there's still dew around?

 

Or am I missing summat?

It was raining up to around  one hour before start. So still some cloud cover around helping with some swing, don't think England will be unhappy bowling first.

Ross Taylor showed great character after being sawn off by the ump.

A big contrast to Jason Roy who would have thrown his toys out of the cot whilst watching Thomas the Tank Engine.

As an aside i’ve dismissed ( a couple of times ) someone involved in this final. If the third umpire counts.
