    Great play by Bairstow & Woakes. What better way to spend a sunny afternoon than supping beer at Lords.

    Who wants guess how much a half-bottle of veuve cost for the missus here??

    Yes, good day – Finn really does have a knack for taking wickets, any idea how fast he was bowling? My daughter’s school is closed on Monday so hoping the Sri Lankan renaissance continues so we have 5 days play and I can do another day.

    We are thinking of taking my kids (11 & 8 ) who both play cricket, to day 5. My daughter has just started playing hardball cricket this year, and is loving it. Are kids still 1/2 price day 5?

    At least, I would guess £5, the MCC likes to get kids into the ground, a few years ago you could walk on the outfield at the lunch break on Day 5.

    Just recovering from my Lords hangover – lovely day of sports today! Woakes having a good game.

    Enjoyed my day but the cricket wasn’t exactly exciting apart from a bit of Woakes and Bairstow and then the first few overs of the reply.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m as pure a purist as they get, and we do need pitches where bowlers have to work for wickets. We’ve just been spoiled in recent times with 4 an over and wickets and spectacular catches, and…. so a day of proper dig in vs wheedle out seems to drag a bit.

    Lord knows how much your 1/2 a Veuve was, my sister’s large Pimms at a tenner indicates it won’t have been cheap.

    Only minor gripe was the tool behind me braying about how much wine he’d had free from the sponsors and how he’s not looking forward to the office on Monday because he’s sure he did some dreadful business as a result. I do hope so.

    Well, if the weather holds, looks like I’m in for a good day tomorrow. Game nicely set, advantage England a bit, I think.

    It’s a bit moist here.

    Nice bottle of rosé just opened though, so all is not lost.

    That is quite punchy.

    He did well with an apple, Junky. No sandwiches in his vicinity.

    I had 2 bottles of prosecco in the fridge at £7 a pop. The missus was supposed to pack the picnic whilst I walked the dog. She fqorgot to pack it. 😥

    Flashy – hope if wasn’t you who dropped that Cook 6 in the crowd? The offender was sporting a STW hipster beard, but I didn’t get a good look at his shoes!!!

    Forgot to mention…..he originally sat in the wrong seats. Someone then arrived and said, ‘you’re in my seats’ seemingly without recognising Ed!

    Fantastic game – got out of jail there – how good is Woakes – highest score by No 8 in ODI history

    Ha, just remembered I got accused of drinking the Kool Aid when I had a comment published by cricinfo suggesting I thought England still had a chance (when they were just over 100 for 6)

    Just watching it on catch up – I’m not sure I’d have been as positive as you but this England team doesn’t lie down any more, does it!

    Well i did say I thought SL would win, but unlike a year ago I hadn’t yet given up on England (I’m sure the exact comment isn’t hard to find if you want)

    Not something I’d predicted, but I’m not at all surprised. He was clearly completely devastated at Lords when he realised his Test career was over.
