Buttler out of the final test. Hopefully this will be his last appearance in red-ball cricket.

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

Great start.

Also, a quick nod to Ireland on winning the second ODI against the windies. Game went to DL because of rain but Ireland were well placed.

Robinson's injured so the good start is basically strawberry floated.

I'm taking more credit for that wicket than Mark Wood.

Rain will be the saving grace here. Useless from England after a great start.

That run out was a shambles. Crawley to blame

They won't make the follow on at this rate.
Total shite. 3 wickets gone for 7 runs.

Kohli has stepped down as India's Test captain.

Wood has bowled his heart out there.

Very good bowling, being let down by the batsmen.
This target is pretty achievable if they don't...
There we go, just as I'm typing Stokes goes.

If I was a bowler, I'd be asking to come back on a separate flight so I didn't need to talk to the batsman.

At least it wasn't an innings defeat.
