When Broad is good hes unplayable, When hes bad hes awful. 35 runs off an over when bowling at numbers 10 & 11 is shocking.

Just smashed the previous record by 7 runs as well.

With his experience as well. He's not a kid who got flustered. Incredibly poor bowling.

Bairstow has been superb again. I think Jos Buttler would thrive in this team now, not Billings. Oh, and Kohli has been an arse  and had a spat with Bairstow earlier.....

Buttler said on Friday that hes focusing on white ball cricket and is not considering playing test cricket for the foreseeable.

That's a pity as I think he'd be dynamic with this new attacking approach.....

Yep, really, really idiotic stuff. I'm all for this new attacking approach, but that doesn't mean making stupid decisions.

At least it still wasn't Broad's most expensive over.

Broad again. This time batting idiotically. Unless he skittles India out cheaply with a 5 for 45 spell this has to be his last Test match.

Bairstow was brilliant and Billings did well - but in my view if England want to play this way theyre going to need a better tail.

So when the ball is replaced, as seems to be happening quite a bit now, is it replaced by a brand new ball, or by a ball that has been knocked about for 10/20/30/40 or however many overs, and so kept on standby according to the extent of required wear?

They have a reserve of used balls  of various wear grouped in number of overs those balls were used. They offer the box full of balls depending on what over the inning's at. Say at 30 overs they will have a box with balls around 25 to 35 overs use. This makes you think we don't play enough red ball cricket to have a supply of reserve used balls?

I think Stokes is doing himself a disservice at the moment. Hes a better player than hes showing.

I dont really know what hes trying to achieve either, other than send a message to the team to be aggressive- but it needs to be smart aggressive. Bairstow is doing that and hes playing superbly. Stokes is just trying to smash everything and I dont think its helpful.

Interesting point made by Aggers, that the new attacking style of England cricket is really just two players (Bairstow & Stokes)

EDIT .....Alex Lees now seems to be adopting the new attacking style

That's some company to be keeping.

Also, is Carl Hooper the most Australian sounding non-Australian name ever?
