    Some very questionable decisions today in this test match.

    Stumped very close. I think out.

    Review where they did not watch whole incident and then England lost review. It was out!

    Shocking.

    Yes bit of an odd one. Mo's wicket was class though. Great ball.

    I can't wait to get back to Headlingley and watch some cricket.

    England are employing some sort of Premier league style rotation policy. Can understand in some ways but agree a bit risky playing that against India especially on the road.

    Curious social distancing and mask etiquette in Chennai. Limit the numbers but let people sit where they want or stick them all in the same area. Mask wearing is voluntary by the look of it with virtually no one bothering.

    He's made all the greeting about the pitch look a bit silly. I wonder if the Indian media is full of whingeing every time they play on a green wicket in England with the ball seaming about all over the place?

    Almost certainly, the Indian press can be hyper critical and their expectations are very high.

    England bamboozled by spin in the first innings of the 3rd Test after winning the toss and choosing to bat - 112 All Out. England selecting 3 pace men not looking too wise atm.

    Terrible batting technique on both sides really. Don't cricketers practise playing spin any more?

    Boycott and Gooch would be turning in their graves (if they were dead).

    I know much is made about moaning about away Test pitches but I would imagine the groundsman wont be on the Cricket India Chairmans Christmas card list. A wicket that virtually no one could bat on and a five day Test match over in 2 days. That's a lot of refunds!! Been a very interesting watch though.

    Test match cricket is about a test of skills and concentration for 5 days. This has been 2 ODIs.

    Itís crazy that India only had to score 194 runs to win a test match. They can go on about the pitch as much as they like, England have been awful.

    If this was Bangladesh or Sri Lanka playing so poorly youíd have people calling for them to be demoted from the elite test level.

    T20 and 50 over series have been amazing. Totally top level the best two teams in the world in these formats knocking spots off each other. Great cricket.

    Just watched the 1hr highlights show of the 2nd odi, unbelievable batting from both sides. Fantastic effort from England to chase down 336 with 6.5 overs to spare.

    It was ridiculous, Stokes went from 50 to 99 in 11 balls.

    England chasing another decent target today. I was just about to say Jason Roy looked like he might do well today......out in final ball of first over. My fault.

    What a series that was, Cricket in its short form at its best, both the 50 over game and the T20s. Well done India well done England brought me tons of entertainment in these challenging times.

    Agree, and from a hilarity point of view, the tests were good to watch as wickets fell every other minute.

    iíve had The privilege of playing against the Ship Inn on the beech a few times, mostly for the Fat Beardie *******s. Absolutely superb day out played after a massive lunch accompanied by as much wine and beer as you could want. Never quite made the original line up where selection was done by weight and facial hair and the batting order decided by a weigh in before the match.

    They werenít the most healthy bunch of ďathletesĒ ever seen, but as time took itís toll over the years I got the odd game as a late replacement. They all loved the good life and cricket.

    Would be great to get a team of Hibees together to play the Ship Inn.

    Intriguing innings for England coming up. New Zealand have a first innings lead of 85 runs which will be tricky for England. Need to bat well
