What a cracker!
Who wouldn’t have been tuned in last Saturday morning? With England needing 5 wickets and India 90 odd runs, it was a classic (fourth day) final morning.
Enjoyed listening to TMS with the descriptions of fancy dress; Bananas turning up alongside Kim Jong Un. Enjoyed Graeme Swann getting defensive of his accent imitations when Simon Mann had a pop. All good fun.
I was surprised the Indian team didn’t manage to knock off the required runs to take the First Test, but congrats to England on a tight victory.
Stokes is the X factor in this team, and having missed him all Winter Down-Under we now have to do our best at Lords without him.
The Egdbaston test was a great result for Curran, and he deserved Man-of-the-match.
We’ll miss Blowers’ commentary forever, but particularly at the 1001st Test tomorrow.
