I'd say we'll want at least an hour bowling today. Be surprising if batted longer than 10 overs after tea.

I think bat the first hour this session, that leaves 105 overs and we should be able to reach 400-420.

What happened? All I can see is 108 in the fourth innings.

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

I’m possibly being a bit unfair, he just got out at an inconvenient time rather than making it a big one and maybe winning the Test.

One of those dismissals that precipitates a collapse?

I'd like to see Buttler with the lion's share of the strike here, Bess is just chewing up deliveries.

Seems like an odd tactic by Bess at the moment, just hit the damn ball.

Looks like we're going to get 15 minutes of fireworks here.

If the opposition chase down 400+ in just over 3 sessions then you've got just applaud them. We've given them too much of a sniff at the draw now.

Can England play Broad and Anderson in the same Ashes team? Or are they not going to be able to contribute enough overs?

That would've been a horrible way for Leach to miss out on his five-fer.

Wish India had taken a bit longer. Virat got out while I was in the shower.
