Interesting to see Stokes say he couldn't believe the DRS said the lbw was out. It did seem like it missed the kiss off the front pad which at the time looked like it wasn't turning. There was some shocking umpiring again though, the one Root all but middled into his pad to be given lbw on Saturday an absolute disgrace.

Had a great day there on Saturday and enjoyed a few beers and curry in Leeds afterwards. I saw the first 50 balls of that innings. They just weren't exactly the best 50.

Agreed, on English pitches I'd be choosing Siddle all day long.

Spoke to an Aussie on Saturday who was staying in same hotel as the team. On Fri night, he saw the Essex boys Cook and Siddle enjoying a couple of beers together.

Siddle was an intelligent squad pick but thought he was a little disappointing at Lordís when Australia did have an opportunity to knock England over for not very many second dig. My guess as I said is that Starc will come in for Pattinson. At a guess maybe Head comes out for Smith.

Despite a good record for Australia in the few games that he has played amongst injuries, Pattinson has done less well v England.

Not that sure Starc is such a great option for the reason of lack of control. Pace, yes but boundary options are usually available. He is a better ODI than test bowler. Now watch as he skittles England at Old Trafford!

But they didn't...........
It puts me in mind of Edgbaston in '05 when an umpiring error, albeit not such an obvious one (Kasprowicz dismissal), got us back to 1-1 in the series when it would otherwise have been 0-2 and little prospect of saving it.

It was an incredibly poor umpiring decision yesterday but one that, no doubt, those who now stand to profit from a continuing interest in the series will be delighted about, ECB, ICC, media, advertisers, sponsors etc..

Yes, I remember wondering why, during the cautious (75%?) part of Stokes' terrific innings, we only seem to bat this way when it is absolutely necessary. One reason, perhaps, is that we don't pick many batsmen who can bat this way.

In test cricket, it should be the default approach, unless circumstances dictate otherwise.

Would have loved to have been there given I used to live round the corner but being able to run it into so many Aussies faces today has been not too bad 2nd prize!

Think Smith is more likely to replace Wade than Head.

Can’t see Starc being considered with so little match practice. The bowlers didn’t do all that much wrong at Headingly, there really was nothing in the pitch for them. I’d just make the one change.

England have probably more decisions to make.

Yes, he should've been out. Likewise Kaspa was not out in 2005.

Neither change the result.

Seems to be behind a paywall. Pity England couldn't have held on to one of those chances Lambchop offered as it would have avoided the controversy.

According to Australian media Khawaja is the most likely to be replaced by smith.

In fairness, the Australian team themselves have been far more mature on this - some very sensible comments from Langer & Paine:

I really like Paine and think he's a better player than he gets credit for. He's the kind of player I'd like to see captain Sussex if he does get phased out of the Aussie team.

Was this a nightmare? Did it really happen? Stokes frequented my dreams last night, and not in the good kind of way.

After seeing the reaction to Englands win, which has captured the imagination of non-cricket lovers (I had friends in the UK texting me at 2am rubbing my nose in it who don't even follow sport) and put Test Cricket on front pages it makes it somewhat easier to stomach, but not much. I'll keep telling myself 'It was good for the game.' I just hope now Australia don't roll over and die and make the next two tests competitive at least.

I can't bring myself to watch the footage as it would make me sick, but in defense of Paine, Cummins said that he thought it was in line, but that the batsman may of nicked it, and Paine was adamant that there wasn't a nick, which is why they reviewed. Paine also said in his press conference that he'll relinquish final decision on DRS because he 'can't get one right', so at least he acknowledges that, not easy, given the circumstances.

Australia should still win the series especially with Smith back but it was great while it lasted.

I think he’s a terrible captain, his field placings were atrocious yesterday. Having everyone on the boundary and Stokes still scores sixes . And asking for reviews that were clearly not going to go your way. One more year and Smith will be back as captain.

Australia only need to win one of the next two tests and Smith will be back. The odds still favour the Aussies. But at least Old Trafford will now be competitive instead of a coronation.

Jofra should probably be able to take care of smith. Old Trafford is normally fast and bouncy.
