  1. Wow, this is almost like live-text commentary. Top work.

    I’m hoping he gets a bowl in this match at some point, to showcase his all-round inabilities.

    1. More like Keaton TEN-ings, you mean.

      Ten innings, that is. Although it’s ten matches he’s played, not innings. Not including this one. Shut up, alright.

      Keaton Jennings? More like Keaton Tiny Head, you mean.

      Anyway, on his Cricinfo page there are links to articles about him. And at the moment, the top one is titled “The Case for Vince”.

      1. When James Vince first came into the England side, Geoff Boycott kept pronouncing his name to rhyme with ‘Dance’.

  2. I think there is a problem with my browser because the hover captions for the first two pictures appear even if I’m not hovering?

  3. At least he only lasted 4 balls and about 10 minutes.

    It’s Alastair Cook hung around for an hour and a half, got up hopes, then got out anyway for naff-all.

    England’s problem is not the number of collapses but rather their nature. Namely, they keep dawdling over them. Get in, get out and let us go to the pub.

  4. Not sure how this is relevant, but Keaton’s dad Ray Jennings was Virat Kohli’s coach at RCB for a bit.

    1. Sugar Ray Jennings? He could simultaneously coach fighting (Stokesy), acting (improve on appeals) and do motivational speaking (all).
