The wicket did seem to flatten out a bit after lunch, by the time moeenand foakes were together there was a lot less venom. Disappointex we didn't get a couple by the end, i thought we bowled well enough to earn them. We need an early breakthrough tomorrow now.

It's nice to be able to watch the cricket when we get home from work. Why did we not force America and Canada to play cricket instead of teaching those stupid timezone Aussies?

Our score is not looking very clever.

Absolutely Paul, but the problems have been around for much longer.  We simply havenít been able to score big enough totals anywhere near often enough and our bowlers just donít carry the same threat away from home when the ball isnít swinging.

It comes down to the top end batsmen for the most part. Other than Root, who in the top order consistently gets runs? I canít think of any.

Good to see the top order showing that much vaunted Ďcharacterí.

Fucking awful display, top order is a fucking mess and Root has to be included in that right now. Good delivery to get him today but he really needs to start making scores and holding things together.

Yep and theyíve got fuck all ability to stick in there like Bravo did. Iíd drop Butler or Bairstow to make a point. Iíd also demote Stokes to 7.

Fair play to Joseph. Real courage. Well played Windies, exceptional.

England, fucking abject. Iím still angered by Bairstowís reaction to his 100 in SL, because it suggested too much entitlement in the squad. This batting line up is fucking embarrassing.
