LOL! That was Amir-esque anyway. Had Morkel not tried to take such liberties Stokes wouldn't have been beaten.

Smile Hey Statto

Has a new England captain ever got a ton in his first test match as captain??

340 for 4 if they stick around surely. At the moment I'd settle for 190 for 4 at tea.

England have scored at a good rate, despite the top order collapsing - how often have we had to comment on that in the past couple of years - unsurprising with the positive way both Stokes and Root play. They have certainly been riding some good fortune along the way.

Not a percentage shot with 2 men out. Need one of the next 2 to stick around with Root to post a decent score.

Captains innings

Root. Ton on debut as test captain. First time for new England captain? Probably not! First one for new captain at Lords? Probably!

Quite a few, apparently, including Cook, Pietersen, Lamb and Strauss.

Edit: The other was Maclaren. Source: Cricinfo

Lucky reprieve for Root but the failure to call no-balls in normal play does bowlers - and cricket - no favours.

Oddly I was there..too much Veuve Cliquot to recall much..bar shouting at Stross to declare as I had a big bet against the draw.

Better still, stamp no-balling out in practice, as Swann was always banging on about.
