Even a lead of around 200 would make things interesting but I cant see them reaching that.

Also, anyone with a ticket for Saturday is fecked

Dismal from Bairstow, Root and Moeen in particular. Root especially, he cost us two wickets.

Fucking hell Mo. Ive 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.

Yep Bairstow was embarrassing.

These are massive lower order runs. Another 20 or so and Id really fancy us to win, another 50 runs then wed be favourites.

Why are we playing risky one day shots with only 2 wickets left plus 3 full days to go?? It's red ball cricket guys!

We need runs and its a 4 day test so theres only 2 days to go.

Whats the point of our batsmen blocking to remain at the crease? Id rather we had something like 200 plus to bowl at than Curran and Broad blocking for the close and costing us runs.

Well exactly, once you get to that point theres no point of blocking.

That early finish boosts Ireland. If wed lost our last wicket within a couple of balls then Id have fancied 20 minutes at their batsmen tonight. Theyd have been knackered after a long, hot day in the field whereas our bowlers would have been fresh.

As it is they come back tomorrow refreshed with a new ball due. Lets face it Broad never lasts long next day when hes not out overnight.

Good reply so far from England though, the run of deliveries from Woakes to get Sterling was a superb bit of bowling and there was an exceptional catch from Bairstow earlier.

Good to see Woakes turn up as he was very poor in the first innings.

He's bowled another belter there to get McCollum. This is the Woakes we're used to seeing at home and, for me, he has to play when we're at home.

He has 4-10 at the moment, a skilful bowler in home conditions.
