I fork out for a month's NowTV and then this.  I should have known better.

Stereotypically English, isn't it? The season kicks off in the middle of July, and the weather's shit!

It is great to see the Windies playing Tests here though.  Their administration is so dysfunctional that at times it seems miraculous that they can put a side out at all.

Do think the crowd “hum” is a useful addition. Although be interested to see what they plan for a milestone, because it’ll be a bit weird if someone scores a hundred and the hum just goes on.

Hadn't noticed the 'hum', so I guess it's working for this radio listener. Not only milestones, though. Will it get more raucous after lunch on day 3?

Burns is the first England player to score 1000 runs as an opener since Chef reached that mark  :o

40 non-English openers have reached that milestone during the same period

Just shows the problems that England have had since Strauss retired

Denly went in a similar way to Sibley, misjudged the line of one angling back in.

Burns went LBW to a very good delivery that seemed to be going down leg but really gripped the pitch and came back pretty sharply.

Both from Gabriel who has looked very good and is getting swing and seam. I can't help but think that I'd rather see Jimmy and Jof bowling in these conditions than watch us trying to sneak up to 250-300

England 63-3 with Crawley and Stokes trying to restart things.

Bit like the Villa, we've waited what seems like ages for cricket to return only to find that nothing has changed and England still look terrible in the first test of the series.

From the bits I've seen, Windies seam attack looks pretty useful.

Pretty ropey batting, but to be fair that isn’t entirely unexpected given the amount of time since competitive cricket. You would expect the Windies to follow suit.

How many LBW decisions has Illingworth got wrong today?

One right! Also, realised both umpires are called Richard so might not have been Illingworth every time.

I'm blaming the useless Worcester git even if it wasn't his fault.

Pfft, you have to win a treble to gain legendary status at Edgbaston!!

Watching the highlights now and the umpires had a shocking day by the looks of it.
