Ben Stokes:




As one who wears glasses, I can say that Stokes was bang out of order picking on that fan's eyesight issue.

Very poor shots from both Root and Curran bringing SA right back into it.

Curran has too much talent with the bat to throw his wicket away in the way that he does quite often.

I'll forgive him because he's batting at 8 and he's still very young.

He is very young, but the talent that he's got is of a player who can play substantial innings. I think his batting could be his stronger suit and has the potential to bat 6 or 7.

Probably needs someone to have a word with him. Great that he wants to play positively, but have a look for 10 minutes or so.

I agree TWR.  I think the same of Archer.

The new ball was X overs away.  His objective should have been to stay in a see the shine off the new ball.  After that he would have earned the right to tee off a bit.  Crucially, if he had completed that then I doubt England could have lost the test, whereas being reckless too early means that all three results are still possible.

I don't disagree at all, i just think there are mitigating factors.

In truth I'd proabably have sent Woakes in before him given the circumstances.

I agree with that. Woakes plays in a more conventional manner, which would have been better suited to the match situation.

I think that going forward, Curran is going to have to focus on his batting to stay in the side. The other bowlers in and around the squad seem more threatening in a wider array of conditions.

Think it's time to drop Buttler now. He isn't getting runs and his keeping has been patchy in this series. That was a really poor way to get out as a partnership was building. Foakes should be given the Sri Lanka series.

Think we have a decent score if we can eke out another 20 or 30.

Another cameo from Wood would be nice.

Really subsided here.

Buttler wasn’t great.

Mark Wood really is a special player when he gets it right.

This is some tail end partnership between Wood and Broad. Broad like his old self with the bat.

The problem for Buttler is that he just hasn't played enough 4/5 day cricket in the last couple of years, he's stuck in an ODI mindset and getting out in silly ways. Root has had the same problem. We need to find ways to get them more time in the county championship but there's too much money in international cricket for them to leave the gaps in the schedule to allow that.

Brilliant 2nd half of the day.

Hopefully we can keep Mark Wood fit as him and a fired up Jofra in the same team is a great prospect.

Thought Woakes bowled beautifully and deserved more than 1 wicket. Granted its a pretty poor SA team, but poor performance in the 1st test aside, England have been very good.

Brilliant day for England with SA closing the day on 88-6, Wood has been good with both bat and ball today.
