    Genuinely gutted when I saw the news.
    What a bowler he turned out to be. Decent batsman at times too. 100% committed to Australia after a shaky start and turned into a great showman. Had a good amount of respect for England too when he moved onto commentary. RIP..

    Agreed with with the first bit, but not the second, Benaud bored me to tears and became a caricature of himself near the end.

    Ooh er!

    Maybe I just preferred to buy into it, but as with the likes of John Arlott, Brian Johnston and David Gower, for me there came a point when cricket seemed that much less authentic without him at the mic.

    Each to their own, I suppose.

    This is the very worst of Richie Benaud, "oh yes this reminds me of an innings by Alan Davidson against the Duke of Arundell''s Eleven at Hove in 48, on a very tricky wicket. He only got 20 odd, but it was a little gem of an innings, one of the best you could ever see." He was as contrived as it was possible to be.

    Decent recovery from Stokes, Bairstow & Foakes, currently at 185/5

    Gutted for Lawrence, but pleased for him as well! Think he’s a player, just needs a run in the side now.

    ridiculous he couldn’t get a game in the Ashes but might turn out to be a blessing.

    All we need to do is reverse the batting order!

    a minor miracle to get to 200 from where we were but lots of pressure on the bowlers to deliver today with Jimmy and Broad missing…

    ..and Archer, Robinson and Wood. Arguably our top 5 bowlers missing.

    Root resigned as captain. Think that’s for the best, wonder if Broad will be the short term replacement as Stokes has said previously he doesn’t fancy it

    why give it to Broad though? Surely England need to be looking forwards not backwards?

    I don’t think there is anyone else who is assured of their place who has the aptitude for it, other than Stokes who I think has said he doesn’t want it? Which is a shame as ideally if it was Broad you’d want a vice captain who could succeed him in the not too distant future.

    Definitely not much of a succession plan in place though - is there anyone else you can think of who would be worth a shout?
