Good old England with their ever-reliable batting collapse.

I guess, in part, you can blame the shorter format of the game, players are just so impatient these days, We've had 6 sessions to bat to get the total but the players want to get it done in 2 by the look of it.

Either that or it's good bowling by SAs something our vaunted bowling attack didn't do.

Ali gone after having a succesful review overturn a caught behind, 2 balls later he dollies it to square leg.

The good thing about cricket is that it's brilliant when it's going well, but I'd never lose sleep over a day like this!

Ditto the England football team - I don't really care.

Supporting a club is very different.

At least Dawson carried his bat...a heroic 5 not out.

Totally toilet batting.  That is all.

Apart from Cook, who at least showed some awareness of what was required, the rest were just awful, absolutely clueless. There must be some changes for the Oval, Jennings, Balance, Dawson clearly not good enough at this level. I think they will go with the lad from Surrey to open with Cook, although i would like to see Daniel Bell-Drummond from Kent given a chance. Wood didn't look right, his pace was well down and he didn't threaten at all. Rashid must replace Dawson if they go with two spinners. And Root must quickly sort out a system with reviews, ridiculous letting Stokes and Broad immediately go for LBW reviews when the ball is clearly too high or going down the leg side. A waste, which could prove very costly when they are used up needlessly. Cook always gave Pryor the final word when he was captain, Root should do the same with Bairstow, the keeper is clearly in the best position to see where the ball pitched and whether it would have hit the stumps.
