...and always the first to be dropped when he failed.

He still played in 118 tests though.

For me, he was a test match number 5 and looked settled in that position.  His form only really started to suffer when they began moving him around the order when Trott and Pietersen left the scene.  Suppose as a senior player it was to be expected, but I don't think he was at his best at the top of the order.

Some knock from Bairstow to win the game.

Yep and a very good win.  Thought the decision to leave Ali out was a strange one given how the pitch played, but with Stokes not bowling they may have wanted an extra seamer.

Should be three good ODI series to follow over the coming weeks.

First ODI between SA and Eng called off about an hour before the scheduled start due to a positive test in the SA squad.

Games now planned to be on Sun, Mon and Wed

Two members of the England hotel staff tested positive and now two members of the tour party have as well.

I canít see any of the ODIs happening now

Bairstow is a good option in the sub-continent.

Ah good. No rush with that vaccine, I'll have to soldier on "working" from home. 😁

I think that I can keep on working from home until then as well.

However, post-vaccine, I have no intention to returning to the office for more than a couple a days each week. Just walking down the stairs is far better than the over ten hours per week that I spent commuting

Spin remains a concern - thereís no one banging down the door to come in. Appreciate this year is a bit weird, but it dates back longer than that.

India in a collapse for the ages against Australia.  All out for 36. 27/9 in the day. Indiaís lowest ever total in Tests.
