This is disgraceful....

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/57488424

The England and Wales Cricket Board says it is "disappointed and sorry" a used pitch will be played on for the one-off Test between England and India.

The pitch that will be used at the County Ground in Bristol has already had 39 overs of men's Twenty20 cricket played on it on Friday night.

England captain Heather Knight said the situation was "unfortunate".

"It is not ideal and we would much rather be on a fresh one," Knight told BBC Sport.

The four-day red-ball match begins on Wednesday.

England found out about the situation last week and tried to get the pitch changed, but it was too late to prepare a fresh one.

"We know that England Women deserve a fresh wicket and we are sorry that we were unable to provide that in this instance," an ECB spokesperson said.

"With the Test only being added to the calendar in mid-April, coupled with the lack of available first class grounds, we knew a fresh TV pitch was going to be a challenge.

"We accept that this issue shouldn't have arisen and we will make sure it doesn't happen in the future."

New Zealand need 139 to win... India obviously need 10 wickets

Fair play to NZ. Wouldn't have thought they'd be anywhere near the final when the championship was announced. Shows what mentality can do. Most of their players are pretty mediocre, but they play brave cricket and have been rewarded. Getting Conway and Jamieson in to compliment Williamson and Taylor will really help them moving forward. Although I doubt Taylor has too much left.

I agree fantastic player, the fact he's so slow means he probably won't pick up I injuries either. Not far off a world XI already. So awkwardly huge too.

James Anderson has taken his 1,000th first-class wicket in Lancashire's game against Kent....

Would love to know the distance this second 6 went

Edit: 121.96m is an estimate I've seen on a couple of sites. Wowser.

Watching The Hundred on BBC2. Everyone's in the studio and commentary seem to be struggling to get interested but the players seem to be enjoying it

It's woeful isn't it. Excitement is forced. Although, I hate T20 and don't really even like regular one day limited overs cricket. So clearly not the target market.

I'm refusing to watch it. Ridiculous concept that is only played in this country, manufactured rivalries - I'll follow Lancs but you can get fucked if you think I'm following Manchester... Sky will force it to works - T20 quarters not even being aired by them. BBC will lap it up as its live sport. Ffs, how 100 ball innings because 120 takes too long. Fuck off! Hate the concept. Hope it fails. Hope the money goes to the county game instead. Should be playing County champs in school hols with kids for a quid a day to boost attendance

They were really pushing the term 'the slot' which I hadn't heard of before. Apparently it's the strip of the wicket where if the bowler gets a yorker wrong and is short then the batsman punishes it with a big 6.

'the slot' is a well known cricketing expression..."right in the slot" ie perfect length for a batsman to really clobber it.
