meanwhile This is on course to be the 10th Test in which both sides have been bowled out for under 100. And only the 4th since 1907.

the seventh-lowest Test total of all time, and the lowest at Lord's (beating India's 42 in 1974)

of course they should

need to grow the game globally, and test status is essential to growing numbers grass roots and developing players

eventually they will progress as Bangladesh did.

same applies to Afghanistan

we should play a test every year against Ireland, due to geographical proximity, and helpthem progress

The end of a golden streak for Tighty. I agree with both of you, all the reasons Tighty gave and a special atmosphere surrounding this Test. I’d be pleased if they had it at Lords every year.

There's 162 million Bangladeshis, but only 6.5 million people who live on Ireland (I guess the Irish test team is run on an all-Ireland basis). They've only got so much room to grow, especially as they will leak players to England constantly.

I'd like some more teams like the West Indies (and not just in cricket). Why not have groups of small nations play together? A rest-of-europe team could become strong enough to beat a top test nation and I think would really develop cricket across the continent.

Only caught glimpses here and there as on holiday but this seems like a proper test match here.......grinding it out.

In other news I didn’t know you could buy a sky sports ‘mobile’ subscription, bought it yesterday and it’s either £6 or £11 a month depending on which channels you want. Seems a great deal and I might consider ditching the snide streams I sometimes watch in favour of this, no way I’m paying for their full TV sports package as I only watch rugby and cricket.

You can just buy Rugby and Cricket now for your tv, not just mobile.

Despite Burns' century yesterday, I still can't buy into him as a Test Opener.

Would you put yesterday's knock down to run good or talent?
