I stand to be proven wrong - but putting the first game in a 130,000 capacity stadium without India playing is a bit of an own goal isnít it?

Hasnít been helped by the shambolic management of the fixtures either.

Poor shot from Bairstow to give away his wicket, need Root and Brook to build a bit of a partnership now.

Fairly poor from Brook as well. Need Moeen to do his bit now.

The Brook one was s predictable, he just got a bit over-excited after the 3 shots before it.

Frustrating performance here, every time we look like we're about to push on we give away a wicket and most of them haven't been down to good bowling or fielding. Should still be looking at 300 from here but we need Root to stick around now though.

The bottom 4 are all capable of some spectacular hitting but I wouldn't want them facing more than 7-8 overs.

Weíre going to need a big last 10 here.

Given they'll be batting under the lights I reckon anything around 300 is a good target to defend but it's frustrating how stuttering we've been, 4-5 extra overs in a couple of those partnerships and we would've been aiming for 350.

We look well short and dew is hard to guage but often makes it harder to bowl.

Yep, really poor since Livingstone went. 3 really silly wickets to give away for Root, Woakes and Curran.
