Broad has started really well. Seems to have added a yard of pace

The info at the bottom has come up with a fair few 88-89 deliveries from him so far, he's been bowling 83-84 for the last few years.

To be fair that's both teams that have not reviewed one they should've so the end result is that Warner is gone as he should be.

I've never understood why football officials get torn apart week in week out, by fans and pundits/ex players, and yet cricket officials make mistake after mistake without so much as a shrug.

It's seems football officials are held to a much higher standard. Weird.

It would be lovely to get Smith before lunch.

Big wicket for Woakes there, couple of really good deliveries to 'buy' it.


I agree that getting Smith would be fantastic but to be honest 1-2 more before lunch regardless of who would make this a near perfect first session.

Yes so that he can leg it to Digbeth Screwfix to pick up sand paper and an angle grinder before England bat.

It's about respect, and acceptance. Respect for the role of the umpire, and acceptance that they are human and will make mistakes. In football, the intensity, driven in the main by money demands perfection which is impossible in sport and impossible for humans but people still refuse to accept this.

I would guess that the decisions in cricket depend on maybe in inch either way and at about 90 mph. Giving them less than a second. The other thing they are doing it 6 hours a day for 5 days.

Cricket depends a lot more on fine judgement than football.
