Something different.

An ambidextrous bowler who switches within an over.

I remember Brian Close could bowl with either hand, but I never heard of him switching in the same session.

Rangana Herath, the last player who played Tests in the 20th Century has just been runout for 5, as England win their first overseas Test Match since 2016 :D

I didn't think he was out!

His bat touched the line as the keepers gloves touched the stumps.

It was a dead heat.

The line belongs to the fielding team, so unfortunately he was out.

Great Test Match in Sri Lanka, 19 wickets to spinners, the other was a run out, first away winning series for a couple of years :D

The last time that happened it was at Old Trafford in 1956, Jim Laker took 19!

And a guy called Tony Lock took the odd one.

No wonder Lancs were relegated with so many players in the England squad.

Kohli making the right comments about Test Match Cricket :D
Virat Kohli says captaining India to their first Test series victory in Australia is the "proudest" moment of his career.

The 2-1 series win was confirmed when the fifth day of the fourth Test in Sydney was washed out by rain and the match was drawn.

"I've never been more proud of being part of a team," said Kohli.

"By far, this is my biggest achievement. The series win will give us a different identity."

Test cricket is most important - Kohli

Australia went into the final day of the series with little hope of achieving the victory they needed to win the Test and draw the series.

They were due to resume their second innings on 6-0, having been forced to follow on at home for the first time in 30 years after being bowled out for 300 in reply to the tourists' first-innings total of 622-7 declared.

But no play was possible and India, who first toured Australia in 1947-48, celebrated a famous victory.

"It's a proud moment. More so because for the last 12 months we understand what we have gone through as a team," said Kohli.

"The fact that the reward has come in the most historic series for Indian cricket is the cherry on the top of the cake.

"In the 10 years that I have played, it is the proudest moment that I have experienced and we're so happy for the whole team.

"It is a young bunch of guys and to have that belief to keep striving for excellence on a daily basis and to get a reward like this we definitely have to be happy."

He added: "We definitely want to build on this and always promote the message of Test cricket being the most important and the most valued format of the game, which it rightfully is.

Do you think it is tenable for the three cheats to get back into the Australian test team? Feelings seem mixed in Australia but i just wonder how they would get on, particularly when playing away. Warner, whilst enjoying giving it out wasn't particularly good at handling sledging against himself and abroad they would come under tremendous pressure.
