Great start by Bairstow, 30 off 12 balls.

Their spinners and Yadav in particular will be key. If we play them sensibly then we should win this.

Kiss of death...sorry.

Frustrating to lose a wicket but we're well ahead of the game, if we can keep the rate around 4-4.5 then we can nurdle for 1s and 2s against the spinners which takes a lot of pressure off.

Silly run out sees Vince go for 27 (from 27), for me he was a bit lazy there.

Yeah, awful running.

Not backing up properly, hesitant at start of the run and no attempt at a dive.

England have responded bloody well to that first game.

A great victory for England and good to see Joe Root get a second successive ton.

Now for the tests.

The thing that puts me off attending cricket matches is the sun.

When choosing my seat for baseball games, I only have to account for where the sun is for three hours or so in order to avoid it.
Also, there's normally somewhere to stand in the shade where you can still watch the game.

If I could get a seat that's guaranteed to be out of the sun all day, I'd be interested

Gutted. Can't go to the India test this year as it clashes with a wedding, and it sounds like I won't have much chance of getting Ashes tickets having not been this year.

It's to make room for the World Cup next year. Not sure why it's happening this.
