I think for the short/medium term Malan would be a good option at 3. Heís got big runs for Yorks, he has successfully recent international experience (albeit in 20/20, but itíll help his belief), and heís scored runs in Australia. Iíd be confident he could do a decent job for the next 18 months or so.

Have thought for a while that Malan should maybe get a look-in in the test side, but at 5 / 6.  Not sure he is a test match 3 Paul, but guess there would be no harm in trying him.

Pretty poor from the ECB not to ensure that it's a new pitch for the Women's Test.

Generally I'm in favour of playing matches away from the big venues, but that does mean a lack of TV pitches.

Hence why the Test will be on a pitch that was used for a T20 last week.

As much as I'd like to be at the game in Bristol, that ground has virtually no shade and would be very uncomfortable on a day like this

Tickets still available if anyone down this way copes with the sun/heat better that I do

Solid start from England

It's playing OK

Wouldn't have been a problem if the ECB had been up front about things; ie that it had to be this pitch due to camera positions and DRS

Test Championship final could end up being an anti-climax

Can't see there being any play today and the forecast for the next five days looks iffy

Itíd be fitting given the structure of the championship.

Be shit if India, having been disgracefully allowed to choose who they do and don't play against by the cowardly ECB, win the title. Mon NZ.

Me too. I also think they have been the most consistent team, at home and away, for the best part of ten years now. You always know you'll get a game from them, and probably an entertaining one.

All things accounted for NZ need to bowl the last 4 in the next 45minutes or so and concede no more than another 30-40 runs. Any more than that and I can't see them having the time to chase the win, the clock is the biggest problem for them here.

56 overs to score 139 for Kiwis to become world test cricket champions. Come on NZ smash these arrogant duckers into dust.

The question was posed as to whether England would bother attempting this run chase :)
