Looking forward to the next test, Archer has got into the Aussie batsmens heads and more than a couple of them are wearing a few bruises now. Warner looked a broken man yesterday afternoon sat on the balcony, In 4 innings he has totalled 18 runs, hope he keeps his place.

Unchanged squad for 3rd test. Guess they will give Denly one more chance and possibly Roy one last chance at opener. Wouldn't mind seeing Curran in for Denly. He's probably as likely to score runs and an extra seam option.

In better news, Jimmy playing for Lancashire 2nd 11 tomorrow. Still a chance he may be fit for the last 2 tests.

Big shame Anderson isn't fit.  Him and Jofra firing at them would be a real game changer.  Hopefully we see him for the final two.

Root needs to be careful he doesn’t over bowl Jof. He had a massive workload in that game, and Woakes was underused.

It was fair enough in the 2nd innings. He was the most dangerous seamer by a distance.

The thing with Archer is that his run up and action seem to take very little out of him. It looks as though its very easy for him to generate pace. Case in point being his spell where he hit Smith being his 5th spell of the innings and his fastest.

Obviously don't want to overdo it, but Archer can easily bowl 6/7/8 over spells.

Vaughan said on TMS yesterday that he’d heard on the grapevine that Woakes is carrying an injury. Again.

Maybe he can, but doesn’t necessarily mean he should. I think regardless of how easy he makes it look it would take a toll, at the start of his last spell he started looking a little stiff.

Also we don’t want to get into a position where basically there’s a perception that our only hope is Jof. That’ll erode the confidence of the other bowlers.

With all that said though, I love him and think he’s brilliant and an absolute star. They’ve just got to make sure they manage him right.

Smith confirmed out for next match.

Has the Aussie Doctor explained why he was allowed back out to bat in the first innings ?

Yes the Doctor has to take some blame here. Putting aside the rivalry and benefit of Smith missing  the next Test match  I was alarmed listening to Smith describing how he felt the nest morning when he woke up. OK he is an outstanding  sportsman but still relatively naive but enthusiastic young man and requires protection from those around him. The experienced management and medical staff didn't do their job right in letting him go out again.

I hope not because despite Jofra he is still the best bowling hope to win the Ashes.

Don’t know about that, Broad has been excellent.

When he came out to bat again you could see he was on another planet.

Oh. and the booing when he got out was very poor form for a brave man.

Well, maybe he shouldn't have been a cheating bastard.
