An 'English Summer' and a 'Washout Summer' are pretty much interchangeable terms, except for maybe once per decade (or twice, at the most).

draw inevitable...lost 5 sessions of play.

Any news on the impact of Jofra Archer laughing at Steve Smith's concussion?

Don't see what the fuss was about with Archer - he just smiled momentarily.

The Australian press is making a big headline out of Archer's "outrageous" reaction to Smith's concussion

I also thought it was a nervous smile...to be fair Mitchell Johnson used to smirk whenever he batsmen with his quick left-armers. Nobody thought that was a problem.

Looks like debutante Labuschagne will get a heroes welcome when he comes back home.

Series tied!

Give credit where it's due...Ben Stokes playing a lone hand with bat and ball...recalling the superhuman efforts of Freddie Flintoff
