Fair play to the Windies for digging deep and producing an unlikely win. This run chase is the 20th highest run chase achieved since 1877. Not a bad effort!
It remains to be seen if the declaration will make Root more conservative in similar situations in the future. I thought it was a good declaration and he backed his bowlers. Matches like this are why we love sport.

Seen some MAD things in cricket markets before but this took my breath away less than an hour ago!

Pretty mad day at Lords .. on a slowish pitch, but, great overhead conditions (for bowling), Windies and England lose 14 wkts.

Rain expected on Day 2, so, Draw at 18. Highlights how much markets have changed .. years ago, draw would be sub, 6.0

Eng 1.16

WI 11

Draw 18

WI 123 All out .. Eng 46-4 ..

At the prices, you could argue, there might be some life in a draw (trade) back .. all depends on how much rain hits tomorrow.
