A pretty hopeless first 45 min or so for England.

Windies will fancy saving this if they can keep the deficit to around 100 given the dreadful forecast for tomorrow.

Why oh why did we not start with Broad and Anderson when runs were tight and the best chance of winning this match (and series) was forcing the follow on? Root is an idiot

Would I have enforced the follow on? (if possible) Suppose you could if the tail is run through quickly, but my rule of thumb is to ask a) can you win batting once?, b) is time or the weather an issue?, and c) how rested are your bowlers?

So a) is possibly but wouldn't bank on it (even trailing by 200 or just over), b) don't believe so and c) reasonably IF they didn't take too long to finish the tail off which impacts a) and potentially b)


If England bat again after lunch they could score more than enough runs in 3-4 sessions tops and leave a day and a half to bowl windies out again. It's already unlikely windies will win from this position, even if they add another 50+ runs.



Woakes and Archer despite taking less wickets than Broad and Anderson have bowled more overs so much longer out in the middle and I'd be keen to rest them (all). I am most puzzled why Bess hasn't bowled at all yet, whilst pace has done the job there have been enough periods between falls of wicket for him to have bowled a few or is it "all or nothing" with Root, either the spinner bowls loads of overs or none at all......................?

Not sure it was the best chance, although agree on two counts - who to open with and Root is an..........

There are still so-called cricket pundits who think that Anderson and Broad should be dropped.

The assumption on comms is that he was hoping Archer and Woakes would run through the tail do Broad and Anderson would stay fit to start the follow on.

Great to see Broad get his 5fer. Only his 4th since that morning in Nottingham.

Since the second new ball in the Windies first innings last week, Broad is 12/74 I think.

Just got in and seen the replay. from the side angle it looked as if Woakes had part of his foot behind the line.

all the ones they showed on TV it was pretty clear he’d overstepped to me. You could see the line jutting out behind his boot. Anyway, if you’re that close you’re doing something wrong regardless. Look at the reviews for broads lbws, no chance of him losing wickets to no balls.

The “brains trust” decided they’d keep Anderson and Broad back while the other bowlers quickly despatched WI. Then when follow-on was enforced we had our fresh opening pair to do further damage.

Best laid plans, eh?

“Departed”? Do you know something we don’t?

Departed from TMS. I wouldn’t have said thankfully if he’d died!

Broad is just 3 wickets away from 500 in tests. He'd probably have got the milestone in this innings if he'd played in the first test.

I can understand sending in Burns and Sibley with lunch around the corner, but I hope the send in Stokes at 3 and then anyone else that fancies a dash.

England need to set a target of around 320 here.

England only need a 100 a session to get a lead of nearly 400. Can't see the Windies getting that, so even if tomorrow's washed out it should be enough.

Well the bolded was working for a long time.

Considering tomorrow looks like a complete washout I imagine we'd want a decent bowl at the WI tonight. Have to get a move on for another 200 odd runs in 3 hours!

Nasty one for Dowrich, Hope better get padded up.
