And now Bangladesh turn over Australia in another thriller.

The supposed corpse of Test cricket twitches.

I never watched yesterday's game, but I'm curious as to "what if?".

Bairstow was on exactly 100 not out, & then Stokes thrashed a 6 to end the game.

Did Stokes have the chance to end the game when Bairstow was on 97? If he did, would he have taken it, & denied Bairstow his 100?

The game was dead by then, of course.

I'm just curious if Stokes would have deliberately spurned easy runs to allow Bairstow to get the ton.

Stokes actually smashed a six with about 10-12 runs to go and then got a single to give Bairstow the strike when he was on 97. It was probably a case of 'there you go son nows your chance', I reckon if he got the strike back he might block out a couple to end an over or get a single to give Bairstow the strike but I doubt he would mess around forever. Thing is in last nights game they were so far ahead it didn't really matter, in a tighter game they would just go for the win and not even give the century a second thought.

I see Samuels was caught behind off Stokes bowling.

Were there any "afters"?

No-one has done that kind of craic since Thorpe robbed Alex Tudor of a ton as a nightwatchman  Shocked

Another fav of mine was Athers declaring with Hick on 98* in an Ashes test down under :-)

No afters from Stokes when he got Samuels this time ... on his best behaviour

I’d put Hales in for the weakest one you are worried about there.

If Stokes were to be charged with some offence, and bailed to appear in court in, say, December, would he still be selected for the Ashes tour?

The way Warne flies constantly back and forth (like a taxi)...I suppose missing for a few days would be quite doable and necessary  Smiley

....and stolen from twitter Cheesy


Someone should've told Ben Stokes it isn't compulsory to have a criminal record to get into Australia these days

No idea what vince has done to get a recall like, and Ballance will be fodder on those pitches with extra bounce. 3 and 5 look like worrying spots, and given the ball doesn't swing much out there our bowling is very "samey". If they have any bowlers fit I expect a damn good thrashing!

As a Hampshire/Vince fan, he hasn't really done anything to justify a recall to test cricket although his T20 form has been good.

IF he gets the call, maybe its just a lack of stand out alternatives....and a second chance to an unfulfilled talent?
