I know there are a few ARRSERs that follow Cricket, so would appreciate your views on the series as it unfolds. I always thought this would be a true test of our No 1 status and events so far today have only confirmed my concerns. Some of our batsmen looked very naive against the Pakistani spinners. Thank God for Matt Prior and the tail. Personally, I would seriously have considered playing Monty Panesar as a second spinner in this Test, but I will reserve judgement until we have seen Pakistan batting. Plus points so far: Matt Prior and Graham Swann on the field. Off the field, "Bumble" arseing about in the Sky Sports studio and predictable Boycott damnation on TMS! Great to see a packed stadium!
