Similar position to mine, results wise, although I have a little more on England and a lot more on draw. Like a lot of my recent test wins, feels a bit like I should have extracted more out of it. Need the draw to re enter the equation to do so.

I got this test badly wrong as started to lay England again early in the WI innings.Got so fed up decided to cash out with an all round loss of £180 and actually feel better for having done so .
Report Whisperingdeath February 11, 2019 10:24 AM GMT
Wow!

from £256 all green to a £32 loss in what appeared to be seconds!

I think I am showing signs of maturity however to walk away with a negligible loss! Well done me!

Well done Wood the missing link. I know he has injury concerns but add Archer to the fray and we may have something. Strongly suggest Woakes and Curran concentrate on their batting, places available at 1,2 and 3. I don't think either are going to be kwality test bowlers although Woakes is probably not that far off. Both good understudy's for Stokes and shouldn't be in the starting XL although both good players who can add something.

Sorry to hear about your loss CS. But if its any comfort I did my nuts for 800 bucks the last test. I recovered that pretty quickly with some luck but i'd rather prefer not being in a position where I have to recover that much money.

Don't you think you are betting too much these days? You're almost doing every single game in all formats. I am sure you are staking much less in the limited formats but imo doing so much can cloud your thinking.

personally I didn't place a single bet on the BPL and only one bet on the BBL. I did do some Saffer ODIs coz I was bored but I'm so glad I've gotten rid of my need to just bet on every game that is on. It does help. I'm profitable since August and betting tests only is the reason for that.
Report detraveller February 11, 2019 12:44 PM GMT
As for this game, I knew Windies weren't to be trusted in a dead game. I layed England heavily in 1.4-1.5 range when they were batting. Then they collapsed and that's where I made most of my current 500 green. I then started backing Eng in increments up to 2.5 and then Moeen got those two wickets.

I did back draw at 42 yesterday but cashed out as I think Windies should stay second favorites because of the amount of time left in the game. Which means draw won't be coming in soon as we saw yesterday.

Oh and I did lose 160 on the runlines because I backed Eng scores from 300 to 475 worth 800 bucks in total overnight. Fortunately cashed out most of them. But there wasn't any liquidity and Butler's wicket killed my chances of cashing out further. Won't be doing that again I think.

I'm happy to leave my draw red and ride out for the England win - as DT says, it's a dead rubber, and the side batting last, with the series won, 2 players likely not to bat, and at least five sessions to bat, will not look the same side that England are in the third innings. It happens time and time again. Third innings makes everyone feel the fourth will be the same - and at 15/1 that's a steal...

Well that is the question we are all asking Juce!

I just think WI were well managed and Captained and played to their best, had a plan, stuck to it and were rewarded by it. In contrast England played their " natural " game, " that's the way I play "! They were badly managed, Captained, did not look like they had a plan and individually and collectively they were God awful.

Eyebrows were raised when Atherton said this was a good side or similar or best. I think and I agree that the balance was more correct. The personnel may be wrong but 3 front line pace bowlers is correct and having a 4th seamer with similar kwality and effectiveness is a bonus. Curran for all his delight is not a third seamer or as good an all rounder as Stokes. He might be more than useful in the Ashes though.

Apart from the top 3, which, is about availability or rather a lack of, the conundrum is how to balance the talents of Stokes, Bstard and Butler. They are all kwality 6 or 7. I am not really sure any of them are kwality 5's. Personally and again I say Foakes should keep and bat 7. Butler and Bstard should battle for the 5 spot.

WD - I agree with your summary about the balance of the side.

If Buttler plays as a specialist batsman he can compete for 4 or 5. Skipper at 3 p l e a s e....

JB should be 5 and Foakes keeping at 7.

I have grave concerns over Burns. Starc over the wicket, Cummins around...2 mid wickets, one man by the umpire to dry his runs up. Good luck Rory... He's so quirky with so much to go wrong.. Trouble is he's the best county cricket has got...unless...

there are players who average 30, don't catch the eye but are MADE for test match cricket.
Report Whisperingdeath February 12, 2019 5:09 PM GMT
I think the skipper should bat where he wants but someone needs to answer England's call and he is probably the one who should do it now. That gives you Bstard, Butler, Stokes, Faokes and Moen plus 9, 10 jack. Good balance with the obvious opening problems which we will have to manage. I would bring in Roy or Hales for the summer or both. My real hope would ashley to have Hameed opening. I know I know but if he scores any runs in spring I would throw him in the deep end and get him some top level help. He does have what it takes I am convinced!

My other left field choice is to have Bell at 3 if he shows any form early summer. Wild but not as whacky as it sounds.

Wood is potentially exciting as is the prospect of Archer for the third seamer slot. I have not seen any of the young guns but I have heard some can bowl quite fast and I hope they come through soon. I am not a huge Broad fan but I appreciate I am in huge minority and he is a Face!
