Roy is doing exactly what they'd have been asking of him. He did look a bit unsure until he got to about 30 but now he's looking in decent nick and showing that he can do a job. I really like the idea of us going after the Aussie bowlers early on so this works for me. Far from convinced by Burns though, his shot to get out today was pathetic, there with an 11 and needing to just see things out and he's waving a loose defensive shot at one a foot outside off. The worst thing is he did it 5-6 times before he eventually got caught out, a leftie not being used to leaving wide ones is just weird.

Jack Leach is a flukey bugger :)

Yep, he looked very frustrated at having barely been on strike for about half an hour.

Out for 92, marvellous innings by a night watchman.

Aww, what a shame, I think the pressure and the heat got to him but that's a truly superb knock for a night watchman.

Tough for Leach. Technique was slipping in the last half hour .

Brilliant effort though

And with a lead of 72 we begin to implode.

Fucking hell Mo. Iíve always been a fan, but his batting is absolutely dreadful at the moment.

You can add Bairstow to that list too Paul.

Yep, neither of them is adding much here.

Abysmal shot from Root, playing like we're under pressure from the clock when he just needed to bat sensibly and see the lead up over 200.

Woakes clearly wanted to get back into the changing room to check if Villa have signed anyone else
