Fantastic day of cricket at Edgbaston today. Nearly 700 runs, and as Nev said great weather and everyone mixing and enjoying the match. It was a pleasure to be there.

I can only assume that's a reference to on going misuse of Chris Woakes.

Yup

Ben Stokes, who stood in for Morgan as skipper against Pakistan, is rested along with Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran, but Jos Buttler returns having recovered from a calf injury, while 20-over regular Dawid Malan keeps his usual spot.

What exactly is Chris Woakes 'resting' from.

Rest. He has had far too much rest of late and that can be stressful.

I think with Woakes they’re managing his knee condition but maybe they need to realise he does occasionally need to actually play.

233 was always going to be a struggle, but it’ll be remarkable if England get close after loosing three early wickets

A century from Livingstone meant that England got a lot closer than I expected, but Pakistan still won by 31

Liam Livingstone is at it again

He’s just hit one out of the ground

England going well at 150-4 after 14, but this lineup looks a batter short with Tom Curran in next.

England in danger of being bowled out here.

Perhaps change that to: England will be bowled out here.  After such a good start.

Hell of a catch by Rashid off his own bowling.
