Hope he makes a full recovery, and that he doesn't rush back to early.

Cue some ill thought out and ignorant social media shit from National ****** Morgan. Or maybe not given Stokes is a white man....

I donít think it seems strange, he has spent most of the last year living in a bio-secure bubble during which time he lost his father. Iím not surprised he needs time away from the limelight.

Itís also a coincidence that this announcement comes in the same week that England players have voiced doubts about playing through the winter without a break and enforced time away from their families. Stokes plays in all three formats too.

Calling up Craig Overton to replace Stokes shows the lack of Test standard seam bowling all-rounders available.

There's really only Stokes, Woakes and Curran. A much as we all like Woakes, there's a big drop off from Stokes to him, batting-wise.

Is this lining up for the anthems something new? I don't recall it happening before. Or is it linked in with the "show of unity" thing they've just done?

Another fine start by our openers. I predict Crawley gets less than 10.

Yes but he scored more than 10 and PWA didn't put another target so, in a way, it's his fault. :)

The last thing we needed today was a shitty England batting collapse.
