Why is Herath ‘doing a Swanny’ and retiring during a series?

That is not bad at all. I didn't realise he has taken 150 wickets, so much for following cricket, me...

this was very bad time for English spinners. Emburey and Edmunds were the best we had, which says a lot

Emburey and Edmonds have surprisingly poor records given they were the mainstays of England's spin department for 10 years.

Emburey could keep it tight, but only took a wicket every 17.5 overs (with Edmonds only slightly better at 16).

Ahem....DRS.

Umpires now give batsmen out on the front foot. When Emburey and Edmonds were playing batsman just used to kick the ball away.

I did a scorers course about 10 years ago and it was interesting.

I've not done much of either but prefer scoring.

I'd go for Ben Foulkes.
We'd never have been in the game without his first innings runs.
Also, no byes concerned give testimony to his high class keeping.
Wonder how often a keeper keeps 'a clean sheet' in tests ?

No. I believe he made his debut in Galle so he is ending his career there too.

Yeah. But they were pretty average bowlers.

Did the level one and two umpiring course last winter when I was convalescing from my knee injury. I like doing a decent stint of overs out in the middle when I'm out but having done the course and getting the hard sell about jumping straight into league umpiring at Alliance level was a little daunting. Needless to say the thought of it allayed to the cost of the kit needed to do it all, spurred me on to recover a little quicker. You are technically required to score out in the middle as well so it don't half take a while before it all becomes second nature. Keep playing for as long as possible.

Just seen an interview with Bayliss where he mentions ‘Cooky’ and ‘Foakesy’ but then said ‘Burns’.

Why no ‘y’? Hopefully he’ll get his matey suffix going forwardy.

Early days, Burns first tour and new to the team. Foakes toured last year so is probably better acquainted.
