    Indias fielding has been ****e.

    Couple of drops are barely 2nd team standard - i'd be foaming with a drop like that.

    Fair play to Curran. Great effort

    India win by 7 runs so close thanks to a brilliant Sam Curran

    Mate, I only saw the final frame by chance. I know it's a bit of a cliche but I can only watch snooker if Ronnie is playing.

    Been an excellent ODI series. Disappointing to lose but great effort by young Curran

    I will watch other matches if I get into it but yeah I'm a Ronnie fan too. Another lost final tonight but he doesn't seem to be bothered, been playing really well lately.

    Cracking game. It’s been a good series, shame there wasn’t another couple of games to go.

    Been a great series. So much excitement in every game. i have told everybody the T20 competition is the best sport around at the moment. Test cricket and T20 for me is brilliant. Then I put footy matches on and quite honestly unless it is SAFC i don't watch too many these days

    True. I used to watch any football match but now not bothered at all. SAFC make up for it as I'm on the edge every single game. Looking forward to the IPL starting in a couple if weeks.

    IPL is top drawer. I've even got my grandson watching it even though he has never shown any interest in any cricket before

    Same here, Know nowt about cricket other than listening to those that have played it, the small talk is as entertaining as the game itself, which is brilliant at times. , suffice to say the football I do watch mainly SAFC, I watch with the mute on.

    The whole package of the cricket on sky is brilliant. Former players talking about the old days the modern game training and tactics etc all done in a brilliant fashion. Then I watch footy experts who generally are bloody embarrasing

    I reckon the woman who is on now and again, runs rings around some of the retired England cricketers with her insights.

    The different forms of the game, 20-20, 50 overs and tests seem to require slightly modified skills and tactics and I find it fascinating to hear it explained.

    If you mean Ebony she is a delight, as are most, hard to say who my favourite is as they are all so entertaining, but she does seem to outshine them all for some reason, <laugh> to be serious, I think its the nature of the game and the amount of time they have in the stands when not fielding or batting, that lends itself to great broadcasting. The Test Match Specials got me first listening to cricket, but todays coverage is every bit as good, the humorous banter with Sunil Gavascar and Mark Butcher in India was the highlight for me this year, but the list over the years is endless.
