    Beer (HPA) tastes better in Robin but the Swan has a nice garden (just got here and sat under the apple tree and by lavender)

    As there was nothing much on telly tonight until QI, I watched today’s highlights, which included one of the most extraordinary dismissals of the visiting team’s batsman I’ve ever seen – the poor bloke’s face was a picture of stunned disbelief.

    WTF

    The game will be lucky to get past Day Two at this rate.

    England bowl a yard too short shocker (or in Overtons case 6 yards, though to be fair it was under orders)

    Who would have thought at lunch that we might be asked to follow on before tea?

    And game over just after…

    I’m going to try looking at this positively. If JB can somehow hog the strike and hang in there whilst playing a few shots then we might at least pass the 100 mark unscathed. We may still be all out soon after, or it might be the start of a rebuild.

    You lot turned it off?
    Lead now under 100, with JB century and the big lad on debut looking for a century too (already has record score for debutant)

    What kind of test cricket is this? Rollercoaster doesn’t come close! What a 7th wicket partnership – where did that come from?

    Interesting test this is. There’s a real chance it’ll be almost level at exactly half way through the match.
    That’d set up things beautifully.

    Overtons knock seems to have “annoyed” Broad “Oi! I’m the bowler who can bat in this side” 😉

    Leach on fire! He’s scoring about a million time faster than his ashes knock with Stokes.

    Well, you wouldn’t have predicted a 1st innings lead, would you?

    Listening to Mo Ali talk about Brendan McCullum telling batters to go out and express themselves, I wonder if he’s re-considering/regretting his test retirement?

    This is a test match! What’s Boycott got to say about it?

    I’m sure he said in the last test he’d be open to a call. Given that at some point Stokes will get injured he may even end up as skipper at some point.

    Unrelated, Zak Crawley really needs to go back to county cricket for a while, I’m just not sure he’s the man for the job.
    Ollie Pope however look much happier.

    It says it all about “new” England, that when set 299 to win, I just assume they will get there easily. A year ago if set 99 to win I’d have thought it unlikely.

    It’s the same players, but they are so different. God knows what Chris Silverwood is thinking.
