Hugely out of form, he's been living off reputation for a couple of years now. Right now it's Root and Root alone as the best batsman in the world.

Is this a second string India side or are they in transition? A lot of names I haven't seen in their test side before
If I were a linesman, I would execute defenders who applauded my offsides.

After dropping some absolute dollies, almost a stunner from Root (if he was standing a foot forward it'd have been out).  Billings also had taken a fantastic catch earlier, and it looked like he pulled out at the last second for that catch - he has shown how good he is behind the wicket well so far this match and the previous one where he was on the field for a day

Is that from a pro, or just someone snapping in the ground?

this from the beeb feed
Quote
A Blackburn couple will become the first husband and wife to take charge of an English professional fixture together this weekend.

Former Pakistan international Naeem Ashraf and his wife Jasmine Naeem will officiate the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy match between Lightning and Western Storm at Loughborough on Saturday.

The pair began umpiring when Ashraf, 49, retired from playing in 2010.

“We’ve done it together in leagues in Lancashire and Greater Manchester and nobody’s realised that we were married," said Jasmine .

"Now we’re honoured that we’re getting this opportunity on such a big stage.”

Can you imagine!
"All the lads have been talking about is walking out in front of the Kop, with 40,000 singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'," Collins told BBC Radio Solent. "All the money in the world couldn't buy that feeling," he added.

It was tweeted by a BBC journalist at the ground, don't know if it was them who took it though.

The colours and contrast between the sky and grass is stunning.

You have to watch then Rishabh Pant bats.

Finds a scoring shot off any type of bowling.

That shot he played off Anderson when he was on 80 odd. Just let his wrist go and slapped him over the bowlers head down the ground for a boundary. Brilliant innings today.

Just watched a highlights reel , he makes it look so effortless. I guess it's about timing, footwork and technique.

now off to watch highlights of Salah making scoring look effortless.

Potts has looked good so far but reason to be concerned in that innings. When the ball wasn’t doing as much he was not threatening at all. Mid to low 80s up and down stuff. Don’t think he’ll be able to do much in Australia or Asia.

Aye, think that's why Anderson and Broad were dropped for the West Indies tour. Not fast enough and don't do enough with the ball.

And on that note...Anderson takes his forth wicket!

NZ at times had their foot on England’s throat, they just didn’t press down hard enough. England also got lucky that Jamison got injured during a test and couldn’t bat or bowl for more than half of it and then for some reason the Kiwis never picked Patel in a test where even Jack Leach took 10.

Nice world record for Broad ;D

From 90/5, I would have been optimistic to score 200+. 400+ is a mammoth total on what seems to be a pace-friendly pitch.

Stokes and Broad will be rightly lambasted for that idiocy. The England batting is positive and aggressive. The England bowling just then was meek and defensive. If Broad had bowled with the cherry to 4 slips and a gulley and aimed at the '4th stump' England would have conceded 40 runs less than they did.

There was no need to bowl Leach on a hiding to nothing yesterday either. I like Leach, but it was crazy letting Pant just do what he does best for 10 overs.
