Eng vs Ireland, Lords
« on: May 31, 2023, 07:46:52 AM »

Lords test match week coming up and England are playing Ireland.

It is a great opportunity for the Ireland team to get some test match game time against this England team.

I still see it as a bit of a callow team, but the results say it isn't at all.

There is one big surprise with no Lords specialist, Chris Woakes.

Eng Team...

Crawley
Duckett
Pope
Rooooooooooot
Brooks
Stokes
Foakes Bairstow
Nighthawk
Potts
Tongue (no idea, apparently he is brisk and impressed in he nets)
Leach

Ireland are resting Josh Little (which is a massive shame)

That'll be the last time Woakes bothers skipping the IPL then!

Shame the batting doesn't match

Absolute chaos! Nipped through to the kitchen for a cuppa and it's all happening.

Tongue looks like he has a bit of extra nip. 85-88mph

Solid day for England. Bowled well. Tongue looked good.
Broad leads the attack well.

Duckett looked class. Crawley did Crawley things.

Batting day tomorrow. Should be a fun watch.

Quality day live in the big smoke.

Good - Duckett puts bowlers under pressure and played well
           Broad a class apart very consistent and earned his wickets
           Tongue pace very spring into zippy action got the ball through

Bad-    Tongue whilst quick lacks any control but is worth monitoring
           Potts didnt use the conditions well enough bowled without consistency


Overall great day out at Lords thanks to @alba caerulea for sorting we started in the Edrich Lower but ended up with a brilliant view in the top tier of the grandstand.

I think Tongue was operating on instructions to bowl short rather than hit good lengths.

Without a doubt he was bowling short in spells as the slips disappeared and we had that almost behind the keeper very fine third man and the slips disappeared but when the slips were in I didnt see enough accuracy for him to trouble a proper test batsman but he has the raw tools to make it without a doubt.

He was without a doubt bowling to instruction but did threaten apart from the odd hit on the head to ( was it tucker).
I was being harsh as it his first test at the home of cricket I guess but when the slips were in I didnt see him really trouble the batsman.

How long do we think england bat today. 5o over burst and try and be done inside the day. Or would the batters prefer middle time to nets pre ashes?

Bat, bat and bat some more I'd say, as test time in the middle will be useful. How many times do we say England are undercooked in the first test of a series.
