Tuffers & Vaughan: Devon’s delight and England’s cautious approach
Eleanor Oldroyd, Phil Tufnell and Michael Vaughan discuss the fall-out from England’s opening Test draw against New Zealand at Lord’s.
They look at Ollie Robinson’s suspension from international cricket, after the player apologised for making racist and sexist tweets dating back to 2012.
The team also ask whether England should have been more attack-minded in chasing down their second innings target. And man of the match, New Zealand’s Devon Conway, joins the show, fresh from scoring a double-century on debut.
Give the man a break
Robinson was a fool but who hasn’t been while a teenager. He has apologised so move in. ECB totally over reacted
Bowlers vs Batsmen
I’d like the producers and the presenters of TMS to listen back to how they have covered this series in terms of criticism of bowlers vs batsmen and then look at the scorecards.
Hail Michael Vaughn
Michael Vaughn is a rare star in modern day commentary; he has an opinion and he is brave enough to express it, unlike so many commentators who daren't say boo to a goose. Without MV BBC cricket commentary would be beyond dull, now that we have lost the great Boycott. Needless to say Aggers is above reproach and always first class.
