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.
