#OnTheUp: England’s 1000th, and changes at the Home of Cricket

Social Media

Hit For Six!

The all-time England XI, a heat-wave in England, kisses for KP, and reading material for Morgan – all in the latest round-up of social media action.

England played the 1000th Test of their cricketing history at Egdbaston this week, and there was much to celebrate. The all-time English XI picked by fans looked like quite a team and generated plenty of debate, but Geoffrey Boycott didn't see it as a winning combination.  

An important chunk of the English pace attack, however, was in the middle of another important debate.

Meanwhile, the (hot) winds of change are blowing at the Home of Cricket.

We couldn't believe it either. 

Hackers tried to slam one past Sarah Taylor, only to be stumped by her quick response. 

As his England teammates play ‘The Test’ at Edgbaston, Eoin Morgan sat down to read it. 

As kisses were blown into the air at Edgbaston, KP decided to plant them somewhere else. 

Alex Hartley found it funny, but what was Keaton Jennings doing there? 

Shashi Tharoor, the Indian politician, thought back to the good old days of radio.

Words of encouragement from an all-time inspiration. It's all gold for the Indian opener at the moment!
