Currently looks as if we haven't got enough batsmen.

Better now than in the winter - however maybe optimistic to suggest that the selectors/coach will learn any lessons.

Its Lords - we are usually rubbish there at the start of the summer series - should start a series out of London more often.

The Maharajah is a new one for me too. (No comment about how well these two are threatening to do now).

Rabada been a bit disappointing so far .

Saffers could be looking at 340/5 by stumps if these two stick around.

Root seems to have been on 48 for ages.

Root and Stokes will need to bat through the day if England are to get a decent total.

Really glad Root didn't hit that. It was a clear no ball. Amazed that the third umpire called it fair.

It does make me laugh when I hear cricket 'commentators' saying about Lords that 'There is no where like it to watch cricket'. Maybe if they had to travel on public transport, pay for their own tickets, food and accommodation then they may think slightly differently. Its a great historic ground but 'The Greatest' I am not sure.
