    Could be interesting if Bairstow/Billings stay in for another 10 overs

    Fully agree with everything you say and that’s exactly what should happen.
    I think the risk is people think ok, BLM’s been done to death, you made your point, now life goes on. Which it will, but unfortunately in the same vein.

    Just remembered this is the cricket thread not BLM, so don’t want to derail.

    Doing something that would help change the situation for the better, not just token symbols.

    Fair enough, but that’s not the same as ‘moving on’ that you mentioned. Moving on implies leaving something behind.
    The symbol of taking the knee isn’t a token. It’s heartfelt and intended to mean something that’s a precursor to change.

    Moving on could also mean doing something that will change the status quo.

    It can't be both though, heartfelt is organic notenforced, from my point if you wanna take the knee do so anyway, if you support the cause and don't want to take knee do same.

    As a sport though real action is real action not a banner that doesn't reflect its lack of actions in past or present. That's why in my opinion the banners and symbols are token

    Archer was appalling today!

    fair play to the Aussies, had nothing to lose at 80-5 and then the no ball, made the most of it.

    If we've learnt anything fom this summer it's that commentators should never try and second-guess the outcome. Yet still we had Nasser Hussein banging on about how the Aussies' tail-enders were sure to crumble under pressure in the final overs. What an idiot!

    Congratulations Aussies, you deserved your series victory.
