I'm not sure I can quite believe that BCC have organised roadworks with temporary lights literally right outside Edgbaston on the Pershore Rd this week. Do they not think to ask? Jesus christ.

We don’t want to let them off the hook (relative to the situation). Come on knock them over.

The umpires appear to be desperate not to be out there. Slightest hint of a drop of rain they call for the covers.

They have been dreadful in fairness, so probably want to be away from the firing line

This is where being a bowler down is a problem.

Aussies digging in like any team would in the position they were in. Would love us to knock the last couple of wickets over quickly as this is becoming quite a partnership.

We should have had them all out for below 150, now we are looking at over 250, which is probably too many for our batting line up.

Great line from Aggers on TMS earlier. “Oh we have a streaker! Oh no it’s a member of the ground staff, I think there’s some rain around”.
