Jeez that was a long time coming. 1 wicket in the best part of 11 overs is a poor return in ideal bowling conditions. Thankfully Cook's drop didn't cost too many runs this time.

Another waste of the new ball by Broad - West Indies able to leave about 60% of his deliveries.

Agreed - he was poor. Hopefully TRJ will get a chance straight after the break.

I know lots of the commentators and coaches talk about it being Broad's natural length, courtesy of bowling around the world, to be a bit too short and it's not easy to alter. That's all well and good - and probably partly why he's our most adaptable bowler to different conditions - but if we know that's the case why does he still take the new ball? RJ and Woakes are both good new-ball bowlers.

Something to do with status and little to do with wise tactics.

My impression with Broad is that he has almost always bowled too short and that there is no excuse for it whatsoever. This he has in common with almost all England seam bowlers in my lifetime. The only exceptions are those who are absolute masters of swing. Evereyone else is simply too scared of getting driven to bowl properly. Particularly sad things about Broad in this respect are: (a) he knows full well that he should bowl to hit the top of off stump consistently (I've heard him say so in interviews); and (b) when he actually does that he can take wickets in bundles.

Remarkable that Broad has been so successful when there are such obvious improvements he could make. Does make one wonder just how good he might have been; I can never quite shake the feeling that for all his wickets and brilliant spells he falls just short of greatness. Perhaps, though, we have been spoiled by having him bowl opposite from Jimmy at his best for years.

Typical. Door bell rang. Hermes with a parcel. "Are you watching the cricket? What's the score? Has Jimmy got his 500th yet?". There follows a chat about cricket, how his mate was overlooked for Atherton at a trial at MGS, blah blah. Finally came back upstairs to see I'd missed a wicket. Still got the 500th to come, though.

Broad fires at certain times and runs through sides..he suddenly clicks..he's probably unsure of why this occurs ..fortunately he does it fairly regularly..otherwise he can be hit or miss.

Yes but he's such a billy big baws in the England team that he never gets removed from the attack until he's had his 5,6,7 with the new ball.

Lots of nashing of teeth about what happens when him and Jimmy retire - should imagine Root may breathe a sigh of relief to be honest...

Well prior to Headingley commentators were saying his catching had improved without the pressures of captaincy (was reliable against SA & apparently he dropped a few in India). This might just be a blip, or that he's losing concentration towards the end of the summer, or disregarding the captaincy and looking at his catching overall, his success rate is suffering (with SA a blip) as he's getting on a bit (in relative terms, he's only a couple of weeks older than me!)

I could do without the rain but the view of Lord's this morning with the dark clouds and lowering sky above the green playing area was magnificent.

A lot of chat on Sky this morning about Cook's dropped catches (including at Hesdingley) and Anderson looking very angry in the field. Actually it was Broad who suffered more at Headingley and looked permanently angry, particularly on the Sunday morning after Ali's drop - Broad angry in general but particularly unimpressed with Ali.
