    Joe root is wasting his talent

    He should average 55+ not 48

    How many times does he need to have a horrible waft at one after getting to 50 before he learns

    Hes such a brilliant player but hes just not making the most of it

    Its frustrating to watch, he even got dropped having a waft on 53 today just to do the same thing 9 balls later

    Good job lads
    Now a free innings for all the batsmen as long as they don’t make a complete and utter mess of this

    Third consecutive 50 run opening stand between Crawley and Sibley, great to see the partnership working well

    That should probably be Buttler's last test innings, Foakes needs to come in.

    we stuck with bairstow for 3 years, buttler deservers faith after 2 bad series imo

    Also not sure why we are going so aggressive, got ages left in the game, take your time and set 500+

    I'm certainly not as adamant that Buttler needs to go as I was about Bairstow, Bairstow should have gone long before he did, he had an abysmal record for so long.

    Surely Foakes should play in Sri Lanka

    He's definitely my preferred choice of who to have keeping in that series, he's by far our best keeper and is the best choice to keep on those pitches.

    He has to

    Buttler is shot mentally

    Foakes was excellent last time in Sri Lanka as well would be silly not to play him.

    Starting to think we shouldn't have been so careless with the bat and at least have secured the series win

    This would be the most England thing to lose from the position we were in this morning, and the longer the play goes on the more likely it is we’ll lose.

    I’ve not seen someone take big moments by the scruff of the neck like he does.

    I saw that too, it's an absolute **** shambles if Bairstow gets brought back.

    I’m now seriously excited now for IPL this year after not really watching the last 2 years because I haven’t had time. Use to religiously watch it and watching that cricket fever on Netflix and with it being T20i World Cup this year

    The ECB have signed joint contracts with the respective counties for Craig Overton, Olly Stone and Saqib Mahmood where they pay part of the wages and get to dictate when they play
    Absolutely brilliant news, after all my whining about stress fractures this is exactly the sort of thing that needed to be done
    Get these guys properly controlled in terms of playing/coaching time and make sure they aren’t being overbowled

    They need to look at the biomechanics of these guys actions

    Pat cummins early career was ruined by injuries caused by his action, they changed his action to put less stress on his body and hes now the best fast bowler in the world and can bowl loads of overs
