    Michael Holding retires from commentary. Unfortunate he ended up missing that last game and a farewell but I suspect he will have preferred it that way.

    Fantastic achievement, especially to go from qualifying all the way to winning the final without dropping a set or even needing a tie-break. I see that she likes her motorsports and even does some motocross, maybe she'd like to invest her winnings in a few speedway teams

    Noticeable whenever Sky show a county game that the main commentators don't have great knowledge of it. Atherton seems to be the exception to be fair to him. Not really sure why they're showing this match though with it being the bottom 2 of Division 1. Should be a comfortable Lancashire win too with Somerset missing Overton, Leach, Gregory and Davey. Can't remember seeing a bowling line-up this poor.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Despite Tom Harrison claiming on Sky yesterday that the ECB's insurance covered a Covid-impacted cancellation, now it's been confirmed that it doesn't. So they need the ICC to rule that India forfeited or face another huge loss

    India are back again next summer for ODI/T20 series so I guess they could possibly squeeze in a Test as well. Otherwise I don't see how they can do anything but forfeit. It's not as though half of their squad has had a positive test and can't play, they're just refusing to because they want to make sure they don't have to quarantine and miss IPL games.

    5th Test just been cancelled because of Indian fears over further Covid cases (in other words they're concerned about missing the restart of the IPL). They should have thought of that when Kohli and Ravi Shastri went to a book signing event... Unfair on England if they lose a series because of this, unfair on the ECB who will lose around £30m and most importantly unfair on supporters who had tickets.

    Buttler and Leach added to the squad so they must be happy enough with the fitness of the seamers. Hopefully Leach is released again for the Somerset game starting on Sunday because he looks like the most competent batsman at the moment Not at his best with the ball right now though, paying the price for spending 2 summers sat on England's bench.

    The problem is that nobody else is an obvious candidate to captain. Buttler and Moeen have experience of that role but there's every chance neither will be in the side for the next series. Burns is the only one that is realistic but not ideal when you could hardly say that he's certain of his place long-term. I was pleased to see Silverwood get the job after what he did at Essex but he's been disappointing. I think we're possibly at the stage now where we need to split up the coaching again. Silverwood is a calm, relaxed guy which works well for ODIs/T20, maybe the Test side needs someone a little more fiery. Not necessarily too intense (like Justin Langer) or emotional (Mickey Arthur) but just giving them a kick up the backside when they need it. The fielding also needs major work, it's dreadful compared to most other sides, when you're an average team you simply can't afford to miss so many opportunities. To be fair if they win the last Test and draw 2-2 then it's a decent result overall. This India side is miles better and I thought they'd win more convincingly. Might be difficult though with Anderson and Robinson having bowled a lot of overs already, Overton possibly now a doubt and Saqib Mahmood also got injured this week.

    Plenty of talk on whether Hameed's dismissal would give England a better chance of winning... here's your answer Wouldn't be comfortable with the batsmen after Root surviving an hour let alone 2 sessions.

    That game for Surrey seems a long time ago now, don't think anybody would have predicted that at this stage of the series he'd have bowled less than 'Jarvo'!

    This could be a long day. Decent recovery with the bat yesterday from England but it's Day 2 at The Oval... you need 350 at the absolute minimum and they could have got there easily with a bit more patience.

    Kane needed minutes ahead of the Poland game next week which is the toughest of the group and Bamford will start on Sunday against Andorra, seems fair enough to me. Decent performance and comfortable win in front of a hostile crowd and against a team that held France and Germany a few months ago.
