Test cricket still gets big crowds , especially in england , India, australia.....I agree its a balancing act to take your skills from one version of the game to another.....The best batsmen like Lara, Tendulkar, king viv , miandad, you could usually tell when they were set for a big innings as they were usually conservative for the first hour or so, get their eye in, suss out the bowling , the conditions, the pitch, wear the bowler and the ball down then go mad later lol

Time for Crawley to get some runs or he will be in big danger of being cast off into the wilderness. Time also for Ben Stokes to get his head out of the shed and bat like a top all rounder. The toss could prove crucial. South Africa to bowl first for me if they win it.

Looks as if Elgar may have made the wrong call - why give a batting team who are clearly struggling a get out by asking them to bowl in favourable conditions????

I think The Hundred is fantastic. Brilliant for bringing younger people into the game. I also like the fact that games are pretty much on every day so for example on a Tuesday evening you can sit down and watch. As for Welsh Fire though, some big improvements needed on recruitment next season in the batting department Ermm

Took a risk in getting through the morning session because they had decided to pick two spinners - talk about backing yourself into a corner. The SA seam attack is clearly superior to England - for me I would have gone with the same team and asked them to bat in tough conditions. Tough one to win from where they are now.

Viewing figures for the Hundred drop by 20% https://t.co/hdaCMncPsk

Double the audience ~1m for test match highlights though
