Even if he had an idea I can't see how his technique will keep out a good left arm spinner.So weve been 2 down for nowt in all 3 innings so far - doesnt bode well for India. Sibley is a huge concern for me - personally would drop him for Burns as he looks like he has no idea against spin in sub continent
Decision to rest Bairstow for the first two tests in India looking ridiculous now. As Nasser Hussain said on commentary, at least start the series with your strongest side and then if players are struggling then give them a break.
Re the Crawley&Sibley spin playing debacle the letter mentioned on Sky from Rahul Dravid to KP
What a great email from a legend of the game. Loved watching Dravid play spin.
Equally, they can watch Root play spin and take advice from him. Makes it look so easy.
Pretty cool that he went out of his way to give extensive advice to a contemporaneous rival from an opposing team. Has that ever happened in footyball???
Ah....4 down now, Lawrence gone for 3. Reckon Sri Lanka will get a 150 run lead and try and bowl us out on the final dayExcellent response by Root and Bairstow but you cant help feeling that an early wicket tomorrow will result in a big lead for Sri Lanka. Serious issues with the opening pair against spin heading into the toughest series around right now.
Can we clone Jimmy please - what a miss he will be in the coming years when he retires.
