You don't know with the scores you see these days, but 310 is a decent total.  It also looks gettable if some of their top order click.

Today highlights why I'd have had Willey in ahead of Ball, you could've trusted him to smack a few extra runs at the end and he'd have put a lot more pressure on their top order at the start.

He is more of a like-for-like replacement for Woakes.  Also offers something different being a left armer.

That said I should acknowledge that Ball did open the bowling well in this innings so i might be being harsh, it's the golden duck that worries me.

That's a big wicket but need a clatter of a couple now.

Big wicket that as those two were more than capable of seeing them home.

Another over or two from Wood and Ball to see if we can nick another wicket or two I reckon.

Huge wicket to get Taylor, poor shot given the situation.

Their middle order didn't do a lot against the Aussie so hopefully we can bag a couple more and keep it tight for a few overs.
