Could get ugly, but you never know with England.

When someone like me, who has genuinely awful skills at judging cricket ball flight, takes one look at an LBW in real time and can instantly see it's too high, that is a terrible review.

Kohli hasn't looked keen on any of the reviews, his team have talked him into them.

Looks like the bowling attack for tomorrow is going to be Archer, Anderson, Stokes, Leach and Broad/Woakes with Root to chip in with some spin.

Stokes :lol: If he bowls more than 10 overs per innings I'll be amazed, there's something broken on Ben Stokes that they're not talking about.

"Stuart Broad, Jimmy Anderson and Jofra Archer have been licking their lips, I can tell you," Stokes told talkSPORT. "It's a completely different game.

I still reckon he won't be bowling.

The absolute state of those logos. Was someone on work experience knocking them up?

I particularly ‘like’ how London Spirit has used about five different fonts there. Almost as much as I ‘like’ this England selection.

There isn't a decent one among them but that Invincibles one is particularly terrible. Also got a horrible feeling the Trent Rockets kit is going to be yellow and orange :dread: I hope nobody paid actual money for any of them.

Yellow and orange stripes, let's call them the Rockets. :fp:

That's nearly has horrible as the length of England's tail in this test match.
