Adil Rashid is first England player in 13 years to play a Test without getting to bat, without getting to bowl and without taking a catch.

Last was Gareth Batty against Bangladesh, also at Lord's, in 2005.

The jury has gone out.
Wouldn't surprise me at all if he gets a not guilty.

Given all the evidence he was guilty as sin.
Luckily for him he is famous and that's usually more than enough.

There is the matter of the hearing to come regarding bringing the game into disrepute but as he's back in the side that appears to be a done deal

Didn't know self defence extended to kicking people when they were unconscious on the floor.
The ecb's attitude has been odd throughout.

Absolutely staggering that he's playing the 3rd Test. But I suppose if they did suspend him he'd be touring the world playing T20 with Smith and Warner.

Curran gets shafted to get Stokes back in the side, more than entitled to feel pissed off

Is wrong, totally out of order. Stokes hasn't earned the recall and Curran actually got MoTM. Fucking shameful

Stokes has been the all rounder to good effect for years if there is room only for one, you can make a case for both.
In all truth they could play both and leave out the spinner.
Could play with ten men and win India are so shit

Stokes gave his place away and Curran earned a place in this coming test. Should Stokes fail will Curran replace him next up? Course not, this is just wrong

Hales has made this run chase look very easy for Notts.

It should have been Rashid out of the team.

Given he didn't bat or bowl in the last game, plus it's India it certainly should be. You can understand they want some variety but really not needed.
Curran has been a breath of fresh air.
