England’s summer is in full swing but are they on the right track?
As the second Test against Sri Lanka enters a third day, Paul Allott and his guests will dissect the latest stories from Headingley as well as those from around the cricketing globe.
Simon Wilde (Sunday Times), Mike Walters (Daily Mirror) and Mark Baldwin (The Times) will assess England’s performance to date and how Alastair Cook’s team have bounced back from coming so close to a draw at Lord’s, only to end up with a draw.
Cook was very vocal in his own defence before the Test began, railing against perceived criticism of his captaincy style, so how has he fared in Leeds?
We’ll also assess Ian Bell’s achievement in playing 100 Tests and look at what changes – if any – the selectors might make with a Test series against India looming on the horizon.
The biggest stories from the county circuit will also be on the agenda for discussion and, as ever, we’ll analyse what the Sunday newspapers have to say.
So make sure you join Paul and his guests from 9am this Sunday morning for Cricket Writers on TV on Sky Sports 2.
