Did I hear right that this was the first half-century of the series by an opening batsman?
Yup the first half century by an opener on either side.

That’s one of the worst reviews I’ve seen.

Yup India have really wasted both of those and not reviewed one that was much closer (although it would have stayed not out).

Cook gone, shame he couldn't get to a hundred but at least a platform for the middle order.

Pity but good knock. Reality is rarely a fairy tale.

D'oh Root gone for a blob. His form is getting worrying.

Reviews are now used as a gamble not so much after a contraversial decision but in annoyance at being out. And teams are consistently wasting them.

Yup the top 3 finally gave us a platform but here comes the customary England collapse regardless!

Oh dear. Root’s review was arguably even worse than Kohli’s. Mo should have sent him on his way.

Root's reviews are as bad as Stuart Broad's. He's nearly as ineffective with the bat too. Needs to take a long hard look at himself and his position IMHO, being captain isn't working for him.

That ball was simple, play it straight.

Here we go again. Lucky we have good bowlers otherwise the humiliations would be embarrassing.
