Pant and Pandya with 5 overs to go, we're going to get eviscerated.

I have no clue why our batsmen are always determined to reach landmarks with sixes. Jonny in the last game, Stokes in this game.

Still, excellent batting from the top three. Not sure why Buttler has been off the boil all day.

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

...yeah. The impact of the money furore rumbles on..

Can't see anybody stopping Essex for the third year in a row, unless Harmer steps on a ball early doors.

Can't wait for the ECB/Joe Root to blame the pitches for lots of wickets falling in April.

Let's get him back in the test team, we don't have enough players who look amazing getting to 28 and then nicking off.

5Live Sports Extra is playing exactly the same content as every other channel so no IPL commentary this afternoon. Guerilla Cricket to the rescue.
