    It seems bizarre to give out a central contract then drop him. Surprised foakes wasn't given an opportunity. Good to see some performers in county cricket given a chance.

    Foakes hasnt had a good county season.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    The last time England were wicketless at lunch on Day 1 was in 2015 and Australia had batted first (Broad's 8/15 at Nottingham).

    This pitch is just bizarre.

    if anyone mentions 230/4 ++ as a good score by the end of the day, then we lose wickets, i'll stab you.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how much control Bess can get on this pitch. I reckon there's a chance for Root to get a couple of streaky wickets too

    It's still good to see openers actually open the innings and see off the new ball

    Its a shame Rabada picked up that extra demerit point and has a match ban for the fourth test

    This whole bat sensibly, build a platform, tire the bowlers out and then kick on could really catch on.

    Fantastic innings from Ollie Pope. Honourable mention to Wood for a very entertaining run spree at the end.

    Root needs to fuck off and let proper bowlers have a go. it's all well and fun, but if it starts pissing it down and this gets drawn there will be lots of whining at him, again, just as he's starting to look good.

    Him getting carted for 28 in an over by the tail was quite funny. He's not a good captain, there's no innovation like Vaughan used to bring.

    Forecast was for it to piss it down at some point so better to let the proper bowlers finish them off.
