    What a day this has been
    4 seamers 3 spinners and rain breaks are absolutely ideal for making a team follow on too

    Pope at 6, a genuine fast bowler playing, Sibley opening, Root at 4, no Bairstow or Moeen
    The selection committee in here worked this out ages ago, finally they have too

    Imagine if archer had woods mentality

    Love mark wood

    Archer is more talented but just doesnt seem to put anything like as much effort in

    And as a supporter the least we want is 100% effort

    Pretty laughable that the view that Archer isn’t always trying because he doesn’t hit 95mph has actually become prevalent

    ENGLAND WIN

    Last wicket partnership aside, what a performance from the team in this test match. Brilliant to see!

    It's the truth it's not laughable

    He was trundling in bowling mid to low 80s most of the time in New Zealand

    Then out of knowhere would bowl a few deliveries at his proper pace if he got hit for 4

    Good series for us so far some new batters look established and wood has reminded us how good he is some nice work from Bess as well. On the other hand this is a really bad south africa batting line up.

    Bowler new to international cricket and has been overused (which loads of people warned about), carrying an injury and therefore cannot hit his pace consistently

    If anything, Wood is an example of what can happen if we aren’t careful, lad is constantly injured

    Excellent stuff now looks like we have 3 decent openers, on there current form sibley crawley and burns all deserve to play when healthy.

    I think the most logical move when that happens is move Crawley down to three and Denly be the one to miss out.

    The fact the last one was 2009 is depressing, but our batting is definitely back on the right track now the selectors have finally got their act together.

    Yeah seems the most likely i do quite like denly and think hes done a solid job but he does struggle to rotate the strike and isnt getting any younger this is a big innings for him right now.

    Great to see Pope get another 50, but Buttler gone cheaply again. Foakes has to be on the plane to Sri Lanka.

    A little bit sloppy, kept getting ourselves in a dominant position and letting them back

    Very useful runs this final partnership have got
  • Hicksy2011

    What a partnership this is, quite possibly changed the game
    We’ve got up to a decent total now and also crucially stopped the South African momentum that was building

    50 run partnership, could be huge the difference this could make
