Is anyone capable of giving Broad instructions? For several years now he has appeared to do just what he wants to do. I'm glad he got slapped for 35.

Clearly not out. The one that Root wasn't given the other day was a clean catch, though.

Marais Erasmus is still an appalling umpire, whether 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th.

only as much as any umpiring decision. it should be scrapped though, just let the 3rd make a decision.

Test cricket is a cracking game but sometimes the pace of play is atrocious. Constantly losing overs through bollocks like changing the ball every 5 minutes. As soon as a team realise their bowlers are ordinary without help theyíre looking for a change.

Cooler, fresher day apparently and no swing. Englandís very slim hopes rest on getting early wickets but itís not looking good.

The weather should be alright today and tomorrow (although might favour the bowlers if its a bit cloudy) but think we need to get them out pretty cheaply

That was a tough chance to be fair

We seem to like the tactic which got Pujara out, which is bowl absolute muck and hope the batsman fucks up and gets himself out

I know Gerry's not convinced by Potts, but I think he's been excellent. You can see his game actually maturing before your eyes. That's what you want from a young player in his first series - and so rarely get.
