6m ago 10. 46 It’s been said before, and no doubt you’ve seen this already, but Ben Stokes deserves some credit for the way he’s carried himself as skipper. I’m enjoying his energy right now.
Stating his intention to win, striking the right tone. Here are a few standout quotes from his chat with Sky earlier . css-1kirxkk{height:1em;width:1.
5em;margin-right:3px;vertical-align:baseline;fill:#0077B6;} It’s been very sad news for not only the nation but the world with the Queen’s passing. She was someone who dedicated her life to the nation, someone that we take incredible inspiration from and we are honoured to be able to walk out on the field in memory of the Queen. We know how much the Queen loved this sport, and the show must go on.
I’m sure she’ll be looking down on all the sport that’s still going ahead over this weekend and that we’re going out there in her honour. I’m very pleased and proud we can do that. Sport is something people come to watch and enjoy but it also brings people together.
The way that we’ve played we’ve tried to do that this summer. We’ve probably got even more of a chance to do that with it only being three days of cricket. Everything we do out on the field this week will be to try and get a result this week.
We don’t play for draws, so we’ll go out there and try to do everything to win. Updated at 10. 47 BST 20m ago 10.
32 While we gear up, have a glance at this cracker from Barney . Reign stops play for the Queen, who spent much of her 96 years around big sport | Barney Ronay Read more 55m ago 09. 57 Hi folks.
Already got a few mails about the weather. Full disclosure, when I typed up my preamble the sun was out. I nipped out for a quick bite (half decent sausage bap if you're asking) and when I came back it was gone.
A blanket of dark gloom now shrouds our favourite star. Jimmy and Co will be loving this. 1h ago 09.
45 Preamble Daniel Gallan Good morning and welcome to day one day two day three of this third and final Test between England and South Africa. If you’re mourning the passing of Queen Elizabeth, I hope the cricket offers you joy and distraction. It should be a great game to take your mind off events beyond the boundary.
We’ve got 294 overs across three days to settle the series. That might not sound like much but considering the first Test lasted 171. 5 overs, and the second was wrapped up in 245.
1, we could well see another blockbuster contest. There are changes aplenty for the South Africans. Aiden Markram’s form, Rassie van der Dussen’s broken finger, Lungi Ngidi’s hamstring as well as Simon Harmer’s inability to bowl left arm rockets from a two metre frame means that Khaya Zondo, Ryan Rickelton, Wiaan Mulder and Marco Jansen are in.
Dean Elgar’s troops are batting first which means Harry Brook’s Test debut begins in the field. There are no other changes for England. The sun is out here at The Oval, the real Home of Cricket , according to Ollie Pope.
We’re close to the end of a brilliant summer. Here’s hoping the players give us a proper send off. Catch you in a few.
