A Captain's innings needed. If he wants an OBE for winning the World Cup, he has to earn it.

He can't have an OBE, we've been through this! A KBE, maybe.

Iím staggered by Rootís idiocy there. Such an appalling effort.

If Roy isn't a test player, then on that showing Root isn't a one day player.

Good running. Put the pressure back on England. No good having a 25% strike rate.

I was still pretty Zen before that Root dismissal. One more wicket and it's definitely time to start panicking 😕

One wicket from defeat?  Let's not be too dramatic chaps.

We need to be proactive, get rotating the strike. Put the pressure back on them.

Suns out now.

Lords never seems to produce anything but a pitch that does plenty. Dire atmosphere, pitch that helps the opposition. Might as well be in Eden Gardens.

Morgan trying to be positive there and nearly holes out!  Jeez. The pressure and nerves must be getting to them.

It's the fucking graveyard of English cricket.

We're not going to win this.
