Nice one Aftab!

Great win England.  Is it time to say goodbye to Jimmy if the conditions are not right for him and put in the extra batsman now that Stokes CAN bowl?
Woakes, you Villa fan you.  Great knock.

I piled on all the money in my account (paddypower account) on England yesterday at 3/1 against so I am sitting on a mega mountain of cash now. All 48.22 of it.

How you fixed for a few bob Aftab?  I'll pay you back...honest.

Great honesty from Buttler on his keeping after the game.

If Stokes can bowl in the next test, Id drop Jimmy or Jofra and bring in Foakes

Yeah its a reasonable shout. Id drop Jimmy, purely because I think Jofra is a potential point of difference, he needs to get his pace up, in a fairly samey attack. Also Jimmy looked pretty stiff in the field and its a short turnaround.

Calling up Ollie Robinson suggests that therell be a change to the bowlers.

Is Wood still in the bubble ?

Whilst its good in a way that Bracey is getting experience with the squad, Id prefer him to be getting runs for The Shire.

Tremendous stuff England. To win that from the first innings position was terrific. What a player Woakes is

Another brilliant test match. Woakes and Buttler were excellent, showing what you can do with some application, but we did benefit from Pakistan losing intensity.

Give it 18 months and Pakistan could well have the best bowling attack in the world by some distance, I was very impressed. But well done England, some fantastic cricket this summer.

Yes mate.  Makes me like him even more as a cricketer.  Him and Ian Bell both villa men.

They paraded the Ashes Urn on the pitch at Villa Park in 2015. Woakesy should have brought the CWC trophy to Villa Park too.
