Have you seen the players we currently have vying for 5? Personally I'd have Stokes at 5, but he's still a better batsman than 3 of the top order. Woakes is a better batsman than some of the top 5 as well.

Stokes is like a cat today. That was a dolly and now he gets his ton.

The people in front of me who left at tea missed a treat.

Cook a good ball early on. Westley technical deficiencies exposed, Malan and Stoneman poor shots because of poor technique. Not seen the other two.

All centuries are equal on the score card .... but really should have been out 3 times! Suspect fielding and not calling a review have cost the West Indies this test.

Sunny tomorrow but with this evening's weather you'd fancy England to be into the WI middle order at least by the close.

Gabriel bowling to Broad. Got him out twice in four balls. Actually went worse for Broad than I'd expected. Lol.

Stokes averaging over 45 with the bat since the start of 2016.

Or at least he was until that dismissal.

Root 53.32
Bairstow 52.00
Stokes 45.28
Cook 44.80
Hameed 43.80
Ali 42.25
Buttler 38.50
Woakes 32.25
Hales 28.26

Woakes should probably start throwing the kitchen sink at everything, England need to be bowling.
