They seem to be doing that quite well to be fair.

A weird total. You would have accepted that beforehand, but maybe not when they were something like 14-3 or 115-5. But the. You would have definitely accepted it at 215-7 and probably earlier than that as they crept closer to 200 with five wickets left.

Our opening 5-10 overs with the bat are crucial. Don't want to invite extra pressure by losing early wickets. The total is there to pass, and not as dangerous as a 240/250 score, but we could easily fluff it if we aren't careful.

Called it Jenuall. Jonny’s down.

Imagine Vince playing in the final. :dread:

Jonny will be fine. He would need to have something like ligament damage for the ECB to break up the J-Roy and YJB opening partnership.

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

Got a bit of extra time to rest now. Terrible review.

Agreed, can only assume he thought it pitched outside leg.

I might have a modicum of sympathy if this was any other side.

That was a strawberry floating dreadful decision. Big up Bairstow for wasting the review on one of the most plumb LBW shouts in history.

Roy told YJB to take the review.

Root and Morgan keeping things moving along at a nice pace.

Question is whether giving them a thumping now is going to help or hinder us for the upcoming Ashes - could put a bit of fear in them or it could rile them right up...

Well this has been/is a lovely day of cricket! Shame Roy couldn't get to the 100 given the way he got 'out'
