yes marsker, no question jonny would have loved to play.

I am not a member of the YCCC, but i would not have played golf today.

I have been listening to cally and following both games of note all day, because even though i was not there i was keen on seeing yorkshire win.

As for Rashid, where has he been today?

" was keen on seeing Yorkshire win"

Is that the same Yorkshire you don't want to win the title because of their tactics?

I think the big difference between jb jr is they are not married and adil has a young family .

LG of course i want to see our team win.

They were wrong wrong wrong at what they did at old trafford and no amount of 'the pitch was deteriating' will get me to change my mind.

Had we have had a go at that, we may have won and now be sitting 10 points clear at the top instead of 1 point behind.

they were also wrong not to enforce the follow on yesterday. As others at the game pointed out had we had the same umpires from last week at southampton we would not have played today and the match would have been drawn....all because we did not enforce yesterday.

We took a chance that we would be able to play today, and ok, it paid off....but why take the chance when the game could have been won yesterday?

Never knowingly giving up the chance to be wrong Peter now tells us we won the wrong way against Durham! Keep trolling Peter.

Pretty obvious that Root needs break from cricket, so perfectly understand if he fancies few rounds of golf! However, it is equally obvious Bairstow would benefit from playing matches, especially key CC deciders and it is far from clear Bangladesh tour will go ahead and India Tour does not start until November. A poor decision.

But surely Peter, with such accurate weather forecasts available these days,(well there was last week when it suited your argument more) today's play was never in doubt so your conjecture is rendered meaningless.

As for'of course I wanted us to win' how does that square with your wish that you don't want us to win the CC?

Bairstow has tweeted message of support within minute of the win.

I think Root needs better guidance. Yes I accept he needs a rest as England have flogged him to death. But I wonder if the golf event is appeasing sponsors of England rather than for him to actually relax. If so then this is disappointing when he had a chance to reconnect with the club.

It wasn't a golf 'event' it was a round of golf with his good friend, Jos Buttler on Jos' birthday. It has absolutely nothing to do with England sponsors.
If you think playing a round of golf with a mate on a day off is a sign that someone needs better guidance then I really worry about what you expect from people.
