Not really a cricket buff but does anyone else think that Jasprit's bowling action is very close to throwing?

Actually, I think his action is exactly the opposite. He straightens his arm very early and turns it over in one huge arc. Very unusual but extremely effective.

Looks like but it is not .. he has an unusual limbs that hyperextends … so his arm goes back a fair bit and his wrists cracks a bit later.. gets a 90m delivery by just walking up rather than having to steam in.

Saw him from the side stands at Lords. It looks even worse in real life than TV

Brainless from stokes.

There is a difference between positive cricket and how stokes has batted recently. The way bairstow is going about it is way better than the way stokes is going about it at the moment.

Watching Kohli is like watching tiger in a competition… never a quiet/dull moment … you could have a Kohli-cam and make some money

Anything under 300 for Eng to chase on Day 5 is fair game. I am assuming that india would want to bat as long as possible tomorrow…

Had tickets for Day 4.. but work has gotten in the way now. If rain does not play spoil sport then it will be cracking finish
