England v India 4th Test at Rose Bowl Aug 30-Sep 3

Cricbuzz

'If Bairstow is passed fit for the fourth Test in Southampton, which begins on August 30, he will bat four. James Vince, the Hampshire batsman of 13 Tests, has been called up as cover. Buttler will continue with the gloves regardless. While Bayliss accepts Bairstow will be reluctant to step away from a role in which he improved at immeasurably, the move will come with the team in mind, not the individual'.

Bairstow is the better keeper.

I wouldn't bring Bairstow back in unless it is as keeper. Otherwise, he's not fully fit.

Although the wear and tear on a keeper is far greater than on other fielders, with the pounding they take so many times per over when quicks are operating.

If it is a hairline fracture, the rest between now and August 30 will help. We need Bairstowís bat in the lineup and it would help to push Pope lower down if he is to continue his apprenticeship at the Rose Bowl.

Ha ha. I get your drift but India's resurgence at Nottingham has breathed considerable interest back into this series for me and so I shall be trekking down to Southampton for the opening day. I know a lot of folks don't care for The Rose Bowl but I've always found it a comfortable place to watch cricket. Good seating - plenty of leg room and a decent rake - and one can mooch off for a ciggie whilst not missing any of the action. It looks like they've sold substantially more tickets than for the corresponding fixture four years ago, when it felt more like sitting at a county match. If the cricket is half as interesting as that particular day, I'll be very happy. Perhaps too much to hope for another Kohli masterpiece but I'll settle for a weighty contribution from any of the England top four and Ravi Ashwin back to full fitness.

I can’t stand it, but mainly because it is a nightmare to get to (although that might have changed).

I strongly suspect that we will continue the recent trend in this country of following up a shambles with a glorious win. Everything will be rosey again.

I like the ground, it's just a pain to get to and I say that as someone who's only ~25 miles away!

The only thing about slinking off for a ciggie there is the bloody people trying to sell you electricity/gas/mobile phone deals, they even manage to misread or ignore my permanent scowl which is unusual for people in those jobs who generally figure their time would be better spent on someone else.

I never found it too bad when walking from Hedge End Station but, then, I was well used to making the schlep from Canterbury West to the St Lawrence, almost exactly the same distance. Such jaunts are beyond me now but there is at least a bus at Hedge End that drops off by the ground entrance.

I don't like that you have to walk past the turnstiles and up a hill to buy tickets, and such a grand development should really have a much better scoreboard. But I enjoy the general ambience of the place and the view from the top of the pavilion is quite lovely.

All grounds should be a five to ten min stroll from the station. Somerset, lords and the oval are great.

I also like headingley but that is because one of my best mates lives a stone throw from the oak pub which has a fantastic beer garden (but not been for years) and that is a short stroll from the ground.

It's not a bad walk if you take the footpath between the residential roads but getting to hedge end station is a bit of a pain for me, the easiest way is to go up to basingstoke (which is further than southampton) and then back again which is two sides of a triangle.

If it wasn't for that I'd go to far more games there, as it is I might as well go all the way to the Oval especially when I have a season ticket to London.

Billings for Vince would have been more sensible but hey ho. Good for the series that India are back in it. Going to be fascinating to see how this one goes. One test could have gone either way. The best one so far. The other two totally one sided.

Ah, I had read or BBC kept pimping the news as "broken"

Then again they're running it pretty close to the wire referring to a tunnel used for smuggling drugs from Mexico to a disused KFC outlet rather.

Keep calling it a "KFC tunnel" which it clearly is not, whether they put ' ' around it or not I'm sure KFC won't be happy, saw it first thing at it soon got corrected but they are getting pretty bad in their headlines, another example is reference to 18 and 19 year olds as teenagers in their headline to make it read like they're younger than they are.

Old Trafford has a metro stop almost touching the ground.

It’s only about 10 minutes walk from Headingley station to the ground. Some spectators, coming from Leeds, get off at the previous station whose name I forget, presumably as it’s more convenient for their stand.

Edgbaston have a shuttle bus from New Street Station.

I can now see the absurdity of my sentence about OLd Trafford but thought I’d leave it.

Suspect England will be unchanged but Buttler takes the gloves.
