Re: WORLD TEST CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL- New Zealand vs India, The Rose Bowl, Southampton(moved from Lords because of COVID)

I think England are lucky to have scored this many runs, and what commentators and media are calling 'flair' among the English batsmen is actually poor technique, and a lot of their batting appears more like golf or baseball swings. Lawrence especially comes at the ball with a 'frog in a blender' a...

So yes, commis chefs, waiters/watresses and bar staff may all get an increase but the price of a pint is going up (it's now common to pay over £5 in Leeds ffs) and so is food. All well and good except ...
