Skittish innings from Head second time around. Didn't seem to play the Indian short ball tactics too well. Could have easily been our 3 times.
Smith played a crap slog as well having got away with a similar one in the first innings. Won't be easy but they are definitely beatable. Labuschagne the big threat for me but he can be dried up so I don't think he can hurt us in a hurry. Our biggest problem will be posting enough runs against their attack.

Based on history 4 seamers does not work. Also itís very dry at the moment.

Early whispers are that it could be pretty flat at Edgbaston, so Mark Wood could come in for either Broad or Robinson.

I think the most likely to miss out is Jimmy. Robinson in my view is arguably the most important bowler. Broad has the Warner match-up and is also very good against left handlers generally. Jimmy has been carrying a knock, and seems the most likely to miss out for me.

Boland has had an incredible start to international cricket, but if he plays I think we should target him. I havenít seen anyone try to put him under pressure yet. That could be because itís too hard to do, but I do wonder.

Agree & also Lyon needs to be played correctly, havenít got to go after him but need to keep the strike rotating when he is on.

The WC final result was no different from every other early summer Test match India have played in England. They just donít know how to deal with the conditions. Australia will find that itís an entirely different ball game on Friday.

I do worry about the difference in preperation the teams have had though. Australia have had a tough and meaningful game against quality opposition, whereas we had a pretty silly game against Ireland

A very good friend had two spare tickets for Sunday if anyone is interested. Face value £89 each.

Hmmm not sure about not picking Wood for Edgbaston. We better hope it moves a bit.

Yup, me too.  I hope we aren't getting too sentimental about Jimmy.  Brilliant though he is.

There will be faster pitches than Edgbaston in this series where Wood will be selected. Edgbaston tends to swing so the attack of Jimmy, Broad, Robinson and Stokes should perform well. That does mean that Moeen needs to perform well though and if he does then Stokes has the option of rotating the quicks at the other end.

I expect Jimmy and Broad will be rested through the series and Wood and possibly Josh Tongue will be selected.

Regrettably I can only see one result, however sport is magic (with the exception of Joe and Stockport) so you never know and I can't wait.
