My prediction: England win toss and bat. Root makes a century first innings as captain. Calling it.


My prediction: Mini E has put the knockers on and Root will be out for a duck.

This will be a good test of my prediction skills vs GRcade Mockers.

Doesn't matter when ECB golden boy Gary Ballance comes in at 3 to steady the ship and grind out a half century from 200 deliveries.

I think it speaks for itself. No explanation required. Pervert.

There goes the theory about Cook getting runs.

Ffs Balance. Should've told Jennings to review - non-striker's role is vital in that - and now he's out. Sigh. C'maaaan miracle DRS reprieve.

Who saw that coming.

Nice one Gaz, waste of a review and misadvised Jennings to not review. Top knocks!

So far, the standard Lord's shitshow. I guarantee you Amla will come in and make it look like a strawberry floating road.

Just read that he is the 4th consecutive England captain to make a century on their debut. We should change captain each test....

Well that's some of the finest Saffers choking we've seen for ages. Root is utter class and Moeen and Stokes were superb.
