Too far out but possibly a very good draw play here.

Remember they haven't had cricket for ages and i'm guessing their ground drying skills/equipment won't be the best.

Cricket was pretty dull yeah, watching Watling bat forever enough to put anyone to sleep.
Was some good stuff tho, our batting looks like it has some potential, Root played fantastic at Hamilton and Pope looks like a carbon copy of him.
Bowling looks dire tho, Archer looked non threatening and we've got no chance of taking 20 wickets on flat pitches with this attack

The Edge
(165)

1h 31min
2019
Between 2009 and 2013, England's Test cricket team rose from the depths of the rankings to become the first and only English side to reach world number one. The Edge tells the story of this special band of brothers' rise to the top and the huge toll it would take. Compelling, funny and emotional, The Edge is Test cricket like you've never seen it before.

bad light alone is going to kill 90/100 overs.
The worst game for weather in terms of starting later and finishing early was when Eng played in India.
They started 1/2 hours late every day for fog and finished 1 hr early for bad light!

How many overs do you think are left in the game ?

Report jucel69 December 11, 2019 8:26 PM GMT
4 days left , 75 max per day x 4 = 300
less say 2 sessions to rain so approx 240/250 ?
Pitch looks decent, not too many gremlins on day 1
Report jucel69 December 11, 2019 8:32 PM GMT
The light is the biggest killer imo. I think the rain will mostly fall overnight and in the morning.
They can't start early either which means NO time will be made up whatsoever.
The sunset is 5pm yet they came off at 4.22pm. Actual close of play is 4.45pm
Normally close of play is well before sunset not 15 mins! Possibly 1 hr at least in most test matches
