If they didn't want players to go home between tests, would it not have made more sense to have all the tests at the same venue?

I'm really interested in why Archer went home, was it to collect something he needed/wanted or was it just because he could?

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it was to pick something up.

I saw something suggesting as much but it didn't seem to be certain.

Shocking review, was clearly out. Really poor from Burns, just need to see off a few balls to make that England's session.

Chase has a terrible bowling average, isn't economical and has a poor strike rate.  He knows what he's doing but I can't help feeling annoyed when our top order get out to him.

Root chucks it away with a slash outside off.  Alzarri Joseph had just come on, have a fucking look Rooty.  Second ball.

Following on from the info I received from Steve James yesterday, before start of play today Simon Mann, Tuffers and Chef were trying to figure out what extra players were in the bubble.

They think that Lawrence and Bracey are still with the Test Squad but they don't really know who's in Manchester

To some, this would be like watching paint dry but I'm loving it.  It helps that Dom Sibley is Bear but watching him bat is hypnotic.

This has been a really professional job, since about half hour after Stokes arrived at the crease yesterday it's looked like this pair were going to bat long. The question is when will they decide to turn the screw and pile on the runs. I'd like to see this pair have a bit of a flash before lunch.

I was surprised that the players weren't transported from Southampton to Manchester by coach as a team

Sibley's performance might bode well for the future but I don't think that it's the best way of winning what could be a rain shortened match
