I was hoping that Bracey might get a game but England went for Crawley, allowing Root to drop down to four.

Curran in for Archer, which wasn't expected

Looking at the forecast for Southampton, this test will be a bit on/off

Sloppy start. Quite surprised Jimmy got in ahead of Archer. Bowling attack looks pretty samey, but hope it works out.

First two wickets to Jimmy, the fielding has been pretty cack so far. England have dropped two already.

Dates for the Aussie white ball tour confirmed.

3x T20 in Southampton
3x ODI in Manchester

Still waiting on confirmation that the SA womenís team are still coming over.

Crap start from England, hard batting conditions mind. Burns falls for 0.

I was thinking about this earlier, but when was the last time people can remember so much of a Test match being rained off/being off for bad light? Iím struggling!

Crowds allowed back to the Crucible for the Snooker final, in an enclosed arena but not cricket. I struggle to see why say a 33% capacity aren't allowed in the Test grounds which is in the open air?

Possibly worried about what happens when it rains and you have people all looking for cover.

The proposed cricket test events, that were called off, were only going to be for a couple of thousand people in each venue. Nowhere near a third of capacity

Heavy rain in Southampton earlier on today. Sodden outfield, so it looks like another day with very little, if any, play even if there's no further rain

Play due to start at 15:20

What's the point ?

Can the captains shake hands (well...bump elbows) at 5pm and call it off as a draw ?

Bit of a message from Root to Jof -

ďJofra has had a week off. We want him to operate in short and sharp spells and we want him to bowl fast.Ē

Although the first part of that is on Root.

Burns goes for a measly 6 runs, he needs a score to get some confidence.

Fine maiden 100 from Crawley. Good effort.
