Pitch looking a bit more suited to us today.  Bairstow looked a bit shaky so far but just hit a nice boundary off the spinner.

A big opening partnership will test India's resolve today. They are assured qualification and I am not sure if they will have the stomach for a  fight today?

Roy just hits a hideous cross batted slog from wide of off stump into cow corner. It may be effective, but god, it so ugly it would make many Village cricketers cringe.

I thought that was a fine shot.

Lots of dots, which we need to watch.

Now a missed wa- hoo hoick which is amazingly praised by the commentator for putting pressure on Shami. Not sure my skipper in Exhall and Wixford 2nds would have said that when I tried it. Come to think of it, he didnít.
Still I suppose itís cricket, Jim, but not as we know it ...

Hopefully weíll set a big total, but I want to see our seam bowlers bowl as well as Bumrah and Shami.

In fairness, now an exquisite straight drive from Roy which Ted Dexter* would have been proud of.

Although I never saw Dexter bat but having read a lot about him I would never associate Roy's batting with his. Nevertheless a great compliment.
