We need Root or Stokes to bat through and itís time for Buttler and Bairstow to deliver. If Buttler fails tomorrow he should be dropped.
For who ? Genuinely interested in the answer here and would extend the debate to the whole team if you to ?

As others have said Pope, or moving Roy down, or Crawly, or Foakes. Buttler has averaged less than 20 this year in Tests, we canít carry that for a specialist bat. I personally think heís mentally tired from the World Cup and needs a break.

Roy to 5 and Sibley in would be sensible.
I think as things stand Roy's the most at risk.

It's an oddity that we have suddenly decided to bat sensibly, carefully and in keeping with the manner in which you should bat in a test.

Why now, why not every innings in this series? Regardless of form I have grave misgivings about not only the coaching but the mental approach to test cricket from England.

That's a laughable shot from Root. Granted its a great catch, but 2 overs before the new ball, not losing a wicket was crucial.

All the hard work and patience of yesterday just thrown away.

And yet again he gets out without adding anything to his overnight score, and yet again he fails to turn a 50 into the big hundred the team needs.

It was all looking so good.  Terrible shot from Bairstow and Woakes, Buttler too keen to get to the other end.  Stokes is going to have to do this on his own, although, we are not really sure what Archer has to offer with the bat as yet.
