Immature twats

What do you do when the scoreboard reads 672-7, your (Swann's) bowling figures have just turned into 43 overs, 130 runs for 4 wickets, and you've just bowled a No. 8 batsman? Why, you give him a sendoff! What else could you do? And what do you (Anderson) do when a batsman is on 276? Why, you sledge him of course! Step forward Graeme Swann and James Anderson, so that you can receive your Puerile-Kids-Let-Loose-to-Play Awards. We have joint winners because the jury found it really, really hard to settle on just one. England are getting into what could be a tricky third-innings situation as this West Indian score climbs toward 700; they'll need to be a bit more mature in their batting.

They've been out in the sun for long - something's got to get broiled by now.

SB: Actually, to be fair to Swann, his biggest outburst was directed at Sidebottom!

The scoring rate during the course of this match has been 3.82 per over.

It has taken an average of 23.3333333 overs per wicket in the match thus far.

It would take 933 overs to take all 40 wickets in this test match, which if everything went to plan would see a total of 3565 runs scored, and no doubt a few lives taken.

CBK: Thanks for those depressing stats. Sidebottom is lucky he didn't get a roundhouse kick to the head.
