Itís not the usual mix of England fans at Edgbaston today. Majority is Brit Indians who have simply swapped their tops and bought a St Georgeís flag. Letís hope it stays that way😉

That flick for 6 by Roy to fine leg was sublime.

They seem to have all brought football scarves outside the ground. As they are backing England it shows how unpopular the Aussies actually are!

Ticking along nicely at 6 an over.  Not sure how long Bairstow will last as having got a twinge he's clearly just going to batter everything he can for a boundary.

Uh oh. I wish I hadn't followed England so much from the 80s onwards, because I always get the feeling that 1 out can quickly become all out, especially against the damn Aussies. Need Arundhati to carry his bat.

Starc takes loads of wickets, no issue with that, but he doesn't have throw down some shit as well. 2 of those boundaries for Root were really poor bowling to a new man.

And Roy could have done with it there!

Didnít like his dissent though and a fine will surely be issued. It was a shocking decision from Dharmasena but he should have walked.

The Aussies have a long stop for Morgan whilst facing Starc. I donít think Iíve ever seen that in international cricket before.
