Impressively gooseberry fool.

Oh and well done to Ben Stokes for justifying being picked over Curran. :roll:

Does anyone think England can bat through tomorrow?

I'd be surprised if they aren't all out by the end of the first session.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Good to see Cook and Jennings setting the tone. #BurnsforEngland

And only four wickets down!

Something is rotten in the state of Bayliss.

This is better from Stokes and Buttler.

It’s quite funny watching the India fans start to panic. This definitely isn’t a collapse-prone side almost into its tail, chasing a massive target against a reverse-swinging ball. Definitely cause to worry if you’re India. Definitely.

Still, credit where it’s due to Stokes and Buttler, the two players in the side I’d least expect to have it in ‘em.

Finally someone wanting to play TEST cricket.

Great work Jos.

But there's nothing like someone turning their first test century into a double. On you go.

Never mind Jos: check out that half century at 30 from Ben Stokes. Astonishing work.

Sky pundits now saying that we need a right-hander at the top of the order as India have left-handers on toast.

Such BS, look how Stokes batted today! They certainly didn't have him on toast.

Great, the theoretical right-hander can bat alongside Rory J. Burns.

We were all wrong about this, at least!

I wonder when was the last time an England player made a century in the team's second innings?

Edit: Cook scored 130 at Rajkot in November 2016. Prior to that it's Cook and Stokes at Lord's vs. NZ in 2015.

Don’t blame them so much in this instance, sounds like Bumrah bowled one heck of a new ball spell.

I think Hypes was mostly referring to the top order.

Bumrah's spell with the second new ball was... OK. Nothing special IMO.
