So do we bump everyone up a place in the batting line up or have Buttler open with Bairstow?

Doesn't appear as though its going to be a huge total to chase, so I wouldn't open with Buttler. Just bump everyone up

Woakes should've taken that, I guess he lost it in the clouds.

Two poor drops in this innings.

Definitely time to get a quick bowler on.

An over too far for Root.

Woakes makes up for his drop so it wasnít too costly. 188-6

95mph that from Archer. Simply has to be in the ashes team.

Injuries beyond a joke though. 2 innocous incidents. Thankfully Afghanistan and Sri Lanka are the next 2 games.

fantastic performance here but very costly with the injuries to Roy and Morgan. Bairstow and Stokes, then Root, Buttler, Woakes and Plunkett with Roy at 7 if needed and Morgan held back unless we get desperate, I think Morgan the captain is more important than Morgan the batsman for this England team (even though he's a fantastic batsman).

212 all out off 44.4 overs.

We can expect a barrage from their bowlers so if we bat sensibly then we should be untroubled. You never know what to expect from this Windies side, they have been a thorn in our side for a few years now and so Iím just cautiously optimistic.

Morgan went off with a back spasm and canít bat until 28 minutes into our innings.

Just being a back spasm is a good sign for Morgan. Easily treated. Hopefully shouldn't be needed to bat today.

Sir Curtly isnít impressed with the standard of their bowling so far. I donít think Iíd risk incurring his displeasure!

The combined figures for the 3 main quicks are spectacular today, 7-64 from 20.4 between them, starting with a brilliant opening spell from Woakes, then Wood came on and had a magic spell before Archer and Wood cleaned up the bottom half of their innings in short order. We got a bit expensive when those 3 weren't on but it was great attacking bowling by Plunkett and Root as well who took key wickets.

In the reply Root and Bairstow have started very well, playing some good shots and looking like a pairing who know they've got no scoreboard pressure on them.
