Fingers crossed there are no set backs because he is critical. Heís an excellent captain, plus his form is good with the bat.

Wood ran off the field. Which would surely suggest it isn't too bad

Good last over from Curran, although I didnít think Smith was out. It looked like a bump ball to me.

Never mind, found it! Why is Sky Sports Mix 121 when all the other sport channels are four hundred and something?

We needed one of the top order to play the sort of innings that Smith did, several got a start but no-one kicked on.

Once Woakes was run out that was pretty much it.

Missed the first innings cos didn't realise it was on until I noticed some posts on here. Sounds like Archer wasn't able to bowl and we still kept them down to a score we would usually chase down. Not a disaster. And they only won because of a century from a cheating convict bastard anyway.

It was a weird game and had a pre-season friendly feel to it. Woakes didnít field but he batted, Archer was on the field as a sub fielder when he slipped over, Dawson and Wood got injured so Rashid and Archer batted, Collingwood fielded wearing Woodís kit. I was half expecting them to start playing the 6 and out and last man stands rules that we used to use when we were kids.

I know it was against the Crims but I couldnít raise much enthusiasm for it.

These injuries are becoming a concern.

I donít know why, but Iíve got barely any confidence in us winning the World Cup.
