Match Tied 😲

Check out Bracey's catch off the final ball

Gloucestershire’s dramatic County Championship contest against Glamorgan finished as a tie after a stunning one-handed catch from gloveless wicketkeeper James Bracey on the final delivery ball of the match.

Needing one run from the last ball of day four to complete a record 593-run chase at Cheltenham’s College Ground, Glamorgan No. 11 Jamie McIlroy edged the delivery from Gloucestershire seamer Ajeet Singh Dale through to Bracey, who had removed his right glove in preparation for a potential run out.

However, the wrong-footed wicketkeeper completed the historic tie by snaffling the flying Dukes ball with an outstretched arm, prompting scenes of mayhem at the suburban venue.

Read enough about Anderson to know they "forced" him to retire as he wouldn't be part of the Ashes 25/26 but surely Woakes isn't part of their plans 🤔

Home 113 wickets @ 21.88 , 42 Innings
Away 36 wickets @ 51.89 , 37 Innings

16 wickets @ 51.69 in Australia from 7 Tests

33 wickets @ 11.33 at Lord's though with 3 x 5WI , 1 x 10WM so understand the reasoning for playing him

Surely if they want to give more opportunities to the next in line fast bowlers they retire Woakes as well.

Imagine Archer will be kept away from the Test arena until possibly the New Zealand series.

England's schedule before the Ashes :-

West Indies 3 Tests
Sri Lanka 3 Tests
Pakistan (A) 3 Tests
New Zealand (A) 3 Tests
Zimbabwe 1 Test
India 5 Tests

Atkinson 7/45


ENG 189/3 (40)
Crawley 76
Pope 57


Day 1: Stumps - England lead by 68 runs
11th best Innings figures on debut , second for England (Cork 7/43 v West Indies in 1994)

Technically it is 3rd Best as Ferris took 7/37 v South Africa in 1882 but played 8 Tests for Australia beforehand.
