Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The English Cricket team looks to be upto its old tricks - and not actually playing as a team.

    The bowlers have performed well with the batsmen falling down on their arses.

    At least Bell is starting to be able to play against spin and showing himself as a top batsmen.

    But why does it appear that Pieterson has been rained in? SUrely his naturally aggresive playing style is the best to beat of the spin of Muri.

    Matt Prior is not turning out to be the Wkt/batsmen that england insist on. Bring back Chris Read IMO one of the best Wktkeepers in the world. He shouldn't have to produce 100's if the top order do their job.

    I can honestly see England losing this first test and i don't consider Sri Lanka a strong test side.
