No worries yet itís a Test match.

Yeah but England's recent Test batting form ... You could almost say that Australia already have enough runs on the board to secure a first innings lead.

Woakes and Broad bowling beautifully since lunch.

Stokes needs to back it up when he comes on.

Great delivery from Woakes to get Head and this is another good one for Wade, looks very close.

Not Smith but well happy to see Paine get out with a pretty poor shot. Into the bowlers now, can't see Broad carrying on after this one but I'd probably bring Woakes back on for a couple.

Doesn't matter if we get Smith out if he runs out of teammates. 😊

Let Smith watch the humiliation from other end. No need to grind him out.

I can see that from.my vantage point in Town. Doesn't look to be threatening Edgbaston or indeed the west which is good because I have washing out.

Rain seems to be heading north, it's just hit me in Erdington.

Woakes and Broad have been exceptional in flat conditions.

Problem is with our shambolic top order, scores of 150-200 are enough to keep a team competitive on 1st innings most of the time.

With a situation like Jimmy today I do find it incredibly frustrating that the rules don't allow you to say he's out of the game and bring in another bowler. I understand all the arguments against it but a fielder/bowler being injured early on day 1 being replaced doesn't harm the balance of the team/match in nay way and doesn't allow you to pick a dedicated bowler and then replace them with an all-rounder for some extra batting (for example).  I'd change it that an injury during the first innings (for either team) can be replaced 'like-for-like' in the 2nd innings but the replacements need to be submitted ahead of time.
