What a weird series.

As soon as you think it is going one way it will definitely swing the other.

What a gawp....

Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali is run out in bizarre circumstances, after mistakenly thinking the ball had reached the boundary on the third day of the second Test with Australia.

And they still declared after setting Australia a target of 538, and had time to take the first Aussie wicket, on day 3

lazy fuckers, chit chatting away rather than focusing on whether it was a boundary or not.

Selfish of me but I'm gutted that Curran, Foakes and Burns look likely to be regulars for England. They were the spine of the Surrey side and will be sorely missed for large chunks of next season.

Do England have a limit to the amount of players they can pillage from each county side because add Pope and Roy to that list and Surrey suddenly look really weak

England were 225-9 when James Anderson walked out to join Sam Curran.

They've ended their innings on 285, thanks to Curran's counter-attacking. He went from 16 off 65 balls to 64 from 119

Sl 24-1

Close of play - SL 26-1

Reckon with the way this pitch is spinning, 285 is a cracking first-innings score.....

Pakistan...

Chasing 176 to win, Pakistan needed just 41 runs with six wickets in hand before collapsing as they were bowled out for 171....

This last test has turned into a real nail biter...

Sri Lanka needed 101 runs to win when last man Malinda Pushpakumara came to the crease.

They now just need 43 to win
England need 1 wicket

Excellent series result that. SL aren't at their strongest and winning all the tosses helped, but three straight wins on the sub continent is always impressive, whoever you are.

Didn't they beat South Africa in the summer?

They do look crap but as you say, a good win nevertheless.

Yup good point - 2 nil, although having checked SL won the toss and batted first both times. I suspect if England had batted 4th in any of the games it wouldn't have been 3-0.

My predicted starting XI

Jennings
Burns
Bairstow
Root
Stokes
Buttler
Foaks
Moeen
Curran
Broad
Anderson

Really tough, I really wanted both Curran and Rashid in the side. Not sure how you fit them both in.

Broad's bed bug bites

Jonathan Agnew
BBC cricket correspondent in Barbados

There's an untold story about why Stuart Broad might not be playing.

He's got some bad bed bug bites - in a very sensitive area, which I inspected yesterday on the outfield. He slept with his full whites on, but they seem to have got through his jockstrap. I don't think it has kept him out of the game - that is ridiculous.

But some of the players have been sleeping on mattresses outside their rooms.
