I agree.

The umpiring has been terrible as a whole in this tournament.

The Windies and Aussies game was possibly the shittest umpired game I have ever seen.
They are just getting lazy with the technology it seems.
Old school umpiring was much better.
This is pretty much over as a contest anyway.
I'll be switching to the tennis at 2.
Hope the tennis final is at least competitive. Seems like all the recent slam finals have been a bit shit

Clay is the ultimate test of tennis usually see some good games just the result is inevitable.
Aussie open final between Federer and nadal was good as well

Yeah but 240 with Roy and bairstow going 1st could be in reach very quick.
Needed 280 I think.

There's the first. All England really need to do is treat this as a test innings, get themselves in and then the runs will come
When you actually feel anger over a place like this it's time to get a life

Henry and Boult swinging the ball massively.

As I thought, 240 could be a tough chase.
