Great start here.  Can't afford to take our foot off the pedal now though.

Apart from that one shot that I grumbled about, I think Roy has been excellent and Bairstow too in his own risky way. Either way, itís fantastically entertaining it and even this miserable old sod is loving it !
Mind you , I think Iím losing my grumpy Crump mojo - I loved Stormzy at Glastonbury the other night and I donít think heíd have gone down well in the 1970s . I guess these days my bruddas donít dab, they just Vossi Bop ....

Oh dear, after such a great start, have been pegged back and Morgan fails again.

Morgan out in an almost identical way to his dismissal against the Aussies.  We're getting bogged down here.

Where's this "Birmingham End" come from? It's the City End. The whole ground is in Birmingham so how can you have one end called that?
Nonsense.

Need to accelerate in these last 10 overs now.  Need Stokes and Buttler if he gets in to go for it.

It has been the Birmingham End since at least 2013. It was already called when they made the (stupid) decision to rebrand as "Birmingham Bears" in the Twenty20.

Not saying India have done it today, but allowing someone to go off with an injury to be replaced by a far superior fielder and then allow the injured player to bat in their normal position is a bit questionable really and could be open to sharp practices.

It could have been worse - it could be called the Birmingham City End.

Mods - apologies for the for the foul language, Iíll put some asterisks in if it causes widespread offence.

I am against this Birmingham end name. I think it should be renamed after one of the Bear greats Ian Bell;)

Fantastic 337. India will not get to 338. I predict England to win by 40+.

No you've got hold of the wrong End.
