Best hope for BD to restrict scoring is stick to spin for the next 30 overs if have have enough bowlers who can do that. Their medium pacers are going to take lot of punishment.

That’s come from nothing, but good platform set by the opening pair.

Not the best knock from Root that.

Hope Buttler’s injury is only minor, he’s clearly suffering a bit.

Good performance. Jofra was bowling rapid.

Love watching England at present just hoping Woakesy gets back on form bowling - he's a more than decent batter and fielder.

Just got back to Bristol from the game - largely excellent by England after Monday but got to say what a joke hosting international cricket at that sh@thole. 40 minutes to get in having arrived well before 10 so missed the start. WiFi goes down so cash only at the bar and no change available. No customer care attitude at all from the stewards. Wouldn’t give them another fixture.

It will be nice to see Aussies take 3 beatings this week starting with India today, Pakistan on Wednesday and hopefully with your support on Saturday against Sri Lanka.

Zampa chucks so many pies it's untrue.  The Aussie bowling is poor once you see off Cummins and Starc, and even Starc blows hot and cold.
