Rubel Hossain, a batsman of no pretensions, managed an exquisite cover drive, holding the pose in celebration. It was England's lowest point of a long winter. They will hope not to go lower.

Poor Alistair is getting hounded by the English media - and many more around the world really.

Now the cook himself is being cooked.
Our rising batsmen should follow Jonathan Trot not for his runs, but for his grit, determination, tenacity, and a full comprehension of the situation and its application.

It only goes to show - you perform and the naysayers slink away or find other targets. Simple as that.

Wonderfully acerbic article. I'm amazed he's managed to church out such a massive article so loaded with gold with a deadline hanging over his head.

Every match report should read like that.

That cover drive from Rubel was really awesome. Any batsman should be proud of that shot.

I saw two. They still remain the two best shots of the match. I don't know how much his sponsors are paying him for holding that pose until the next ball !
