20-6.........car crash cricket and Rabada on a hat trick.

That is the point at which I switched on the TV and promptly switched it off again. A decent recovery but it will need a major screw up for SA to lose from here.

Need to hit the ground running today. Bangladesh will be a dangerous side at the Oval.

Seems odd that we have dropped Rashid after he's been a mainstay of the side.

Have got two spare tickets for the Aus-NZ game at Edgbasotn tomorrow if anybody wants them? 40 each face value, or make me an offer. Can meet you there.

Woakes potentially having a side strain is a big blow.

This shows why I think Woakes is so important, we're missing him badly here.

This is going to be tough, our issue of taking wickets has come to the fore. I don't think dropping Rashid, regardless of Bangladesh's perceived weakness against pace, was a smart call.

277/5 46.4 wickets started to tumble.

Should still get over the 300 mark but shouldn't worry England too much....fingers crossed.

England will need to bat well here. When you're chasing 300 you always need to.
