THE RED ROOSTER Posted July 24, 2022 Share Posted July 24, 2022 More interesting than the actual game itself was the rain delay discussion involving the pundits on SKY, with Mischevious Mike Atherton, the Times Cricket Correspondent and therefore the only one that does not bite the hand that feeds him, sailing close to calling for the to be punted. No such honesty from Hussein or Knight and some interesting observations from Shaun Pollock on the death of the domestic 4 day game in South Africa and the rest of the world and Mark Butcher offering the equally valid observation that while England may ditch the 50 over game (of which they are world champions) but the rest of the world could be ditching test cricket instead https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/cricket/12656964/michael-atherton-feels-cricket-has-reached-tipping-point-says-there-will-be-fewer-bilateral-series Still there are those who would sell the loss making franchises to IPL owners at the ECB just as the South African Just have.,. what problem could that cause.... I predict Ben Stokes as a short term England captain giving upn the post after the 2023 Ashes win or lose then once the 50 0ver World Cup has finished the exodus from the English game to the franchise leagues will begin.
