At the moment some blokes in banana costumes are being chased by a bloke in a gorilla suit.
How much curvature was on the banana?

That looks suspiciously more like a plantain than a banana.

None of your foreign muck on my English cricket thread, if you don't mind.

Bananas may be grown abroad but they're as English as fish & chips.

We invented them.

The natives didn't know what to do with them until Sir Winston Raleigh showed 'em how to smoke the things in pipes.

Or was that spuds...?

Raleigh invented the bicycle. You're thinking of Winston Shakespeare,who rebuilt 52 churches after oliver Cromwell set fire to some cakes,causing the great fire of London.

Who was Nelson?

Didn't he invent wrestling?

Poor old Horatio ended up doing ads for Jaffa,with the slogan 'I see no pips'.

Tragic. His death was a blessing.

He was a goer though. Even as he lay dying he wanted someone to kiss his hardy.

The cricket is getting interesting at the moment.

Pakistan seem to be collapsing now 125 for 5.

Come on England!

I was concerned about the declaration as at one stage Pakistan really only needed around 4 an over to make the score, but once the wickets started to fall they had no chance. Confidence in the bowlers.

Cook and the old management team would have bat until mid afternoon to make it safe.

It's the new brand (new to us) of aggressive cricket and it's worked again.

History shows very few teams score over 300 to win a match, particularly coming in after a long spell in the field.
Great declaration because the bowlers came on fresh from a nights rest.

Fabulous decision with hindsight but at the time there was always going to be that nagging doubt that the worst could happen - at least until their batting collapse in the middle order.

England just broke the record for the highest ever 1 day score. 444. Was like a baseball game.

Nicely poised now.

It looked like we were going to lose an hour ago.

Now it looks like we're going to win.

Test match cricket's ace.

Poor bowling performance, should have had them out for 150 on this pitch.

We'll lose.

Looks like Whittam was sort of right with her prediction - She was just one test match too early.

Losing to Banglafuckingdesh.

The shame.......

Spineless performance, absolutely gutless. How hard is it to hit a cricket ball when someone is bowling it so slowly?

Utter twats.

The first time Bangladesh have ever beaten "a top side" in a test match. What a collapse by England!

I'm blaming those enormous flying insects that come out after Tea when the light starts to fade.

I couldn't bat with a horde of flies the size of sparrows dive bombing my helmet every thirty seconds.

Yeah, I'm going with that as an excuse.
