Oh god. England since about 2012 choosing to bat just sets my pulse racing.

Could be a lot of work for Woakes and Robinson in this game. Root will probably want to use Wood in short bursts and Stokes sparingly

Yeah, BT Sport was pitched as a good thing, 'breaking the monopoly'. Instead it's a duopoly and you now have to pay for both BT and Sky, so it costs double what it was when it was a monopoly!

BT sport build up has been like streaming a villa game on a US channel. I had to switch to TMS. I will add a caveat that I think Cookie will be a fine pundit.

Go to sleep at 21.30, alarm at 23:45, see the stumps spin at 00:01.

Great.

On BT Sport for good measure.

Predictably pathetic start. Get Root out and they are in to the tail.

Iím quite confident weather permitting that we will lose 5-0 in this Ashes series

Not good enough with the bat to make the runs
Not good enough with the ball to take enough wickets
= no chance
