I was wondering how long since Cook last got a ton. Didn't realise it was as long as that. IMO he should throw off the captaincy, I think it's distracting him. Trouble is I can't think who else should have it.

No point in any changes till we know if Flower is staying or going.

Surely Prior should be uncrossed now.

This was discussed earlier in the thread and the consensus was:

Totally forgot I said that. But if we don't need to measure Prior by the standards of other batsmen why have him in the list?

"Devils" is a bit shorter than saying "angry mob wiith pitchforks".

So that "other batsmen [can] be judged against him"

All the same I think the reason it's been so long since Prior last scored a century is because he hasn't scored a century for a long time. The other day at Lord's for example he didn't get a century because he got out first. There may be a pattern here.

It'll be a great effort by Anderson if Root can get to three figures in the morning. Still possible though.
