RAIN Perera has made his way over from Sri Lanka, I see.

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

It’s over now, but I am a big fan of this gritty partnership between Zimbabwe’s openers. Just what they need.

I am also a big fan of Mark Wood.

Seems like the only change to tomorrow's team is going to be Archer for Wood.

Seems harsh on Wood, unless he's struggling with an injury

He’s ‘sore’.

In Wood-speak, another match and he’s in piece’s again.

Looks like Archer has broken down and the plan is to drop Bess for Woakes and keep Wood in. I guess the thinking is that Woakes can cover Wood if he snaps. Unlucky for Bess, he deserves to play after the last match.

I think Root is overestimating his own bowling after picking up a few wickets.

Looks like it might not matter. This could be the spark that starts the inferno, but South Africa look like they're already keen for the series to be over. Should have had a couple of wickets against this England team in these conditions by now.
