    So they made hay with this fucking straw-like batting line up. Pathetic from England.

    The one positive is there are 66 worse totals they could conceivably have made but avoided doing so.

    England are going to win this..
    Impressive 2nd innings so far..  Pitch is perfect for batting..

    Frustrating the hell out of the aussie attack with their approach..

    Ben Stokes

    The most complete all rounder their is in world cricket

    Astonishing innings .

    Though the Aussies wasted review lost them that test..

    He was out lbw... No reviews.. left..

    You take your luck in times like this.. And Stokesy most certainly did

    Let's not allow the fact that he's really a Kiwi to bother us.  :D

    It's a shame that I am a bit too old to marry him.

    Stunning, but very lucky performance. Lyon messes up the run out, Australia throw away a review when they needed one with a Lyon delivery.

    England need to sort things out for Old Trafford now. I’d be tempted to drop Roy and put Root back at 4. The batting still glaring deficiencies.

    Great day in the media for England fans.  Earlier this afternoon yesterday's shellacking of Ireland at Twickenham also got a repeat airing.  :vamp:

    If he isn't Sir Ben Stokes by Christmas, the country needs to take a look at itself.

    If Stokes keeps this up, he might just  challenge Divock for Sports Personality of the Year.

    Who does Anderson come in for?  Woakes?  We'd have quite a tail in that case.  Roy has to be out, and maybe Buttler.  Sibley to open, and Pope might be worth a try.

    Hasn't Anderson got another game with Lancs seconds this week? If he comes through that I'd wait and see. I think the bowling attack is fine. Roy needs to be dropped or dropped lower, maybe push Denley up to open?

    I like Sibley and Pope but it's clear from the Aussie attack that some of our batsmen aren't used to the short stuff and they don't face anything like them in the county championship. So probably a risk not worth taking.

    I was away man - Just trying to keep up with it on my phone. Got back a few hours ago and happily I had it recorded. I've just watched the whole thing. Utterly astonishing. That reverse sweep was from the gods! His cuts as well. I so wish I was there. :)
