Woakes and Archer have been outrageously good. Wood and Plunkett need to keep up the intensity when they come on

They do. They’ve still got plenty of batting and I wouldn’t want us chasing over 200!

Carey and Smith are very good.

They are but Carey looked really rattled by the chin music from Archer adn Smith has got himself really bogged down. As above we need to keep the pressure on and not give anything away in the next 9-10. If we can keep them down to 60ish after 20 it will force them to take more risks.

Poor start from Wood here. Brilliant fielding is keeping the score in this over down.

Wood often has a few wayward deliveries in his first over, hopefully the last couple will help him find his line.

Smith is a worry here.

This injury to Carey looks really nasty.

I don’t know if conditions are getting easier, but change bowlers haven’t been great so far.

We need Wood and Plunkett to sort their lengths out, they're both given runs away here. The rate was always going to rise once the ball stopped swinging but we need to keep bowling a good length. Some of the short stuff from Wood in particular has been terrible and then when he bowls a 'normal' length they're struggling to score.

Intensity dropped. Archer probably should have been given another over.

Possibly conditions easier to bat now.

Still scoring at under 4, so no panic yet

That’s ramping up now.
