Another 3 sessions like that (but maybe with a few more runs once the bowlers tire) and we'll be ok.

I really hope he doesn’t get out straight after lunch, but this innings alone should be enough to win Rory an extended stay.

No jinxing please.

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

This is proper cricket, absolutely enthralling session (made more so because we all know that England can go from 1 down to 4 down in the blink of an eye).

Don't worry though, because we've got Joe Denly.

When was the last time an English opener, that wasn't Alastair Cook, batted an entire day?

I think only Root has scored a home ashes century as an opener since Strauss.

England need 400, both for this game and confidence overall.
