Well we have got to  tea 2 down. Only 3 seamers a spinner and a part time spinner. Just stick around wear them down. As I said yesterday no reason why we cant still win.

Long way to go. It's frustrating that this wasn't on display yesterday but they've done ok today. Do need to make hay with the softer ball and the tired bowlers though. Tomorrow mid morning will be rested bowlers and a new ball at some point. Need these guys to survive a full hour plus tonight to genuinely think about doing it though. Can change so quickly.

Makes it more interesting though doesn't it.  I think we just need to carry on as we are and play each ball on merit.

Joe Root showing great character. 3 down at the close is good. Just one wicket In the first session tomorrow and it’ really is on

Still in with a shout. Fair play to Root, solid innings that.

Fair play. Didn’t think we’d be seeing tea when both the openers fell after lunch! It’s nice to have a bit of optimism, but we all know how this is going to end :lol:

Thought this would be all over by today. To now have half a chance after that s**tshow in the first innings is crazy.

Braindead batting. All the good work of yesterday undone.

That’s why his conversion rate from 50 to 100 is so poor.

This match is not over yet. England have 130 to get with 6 wickets in hand and the pitch is doing nothing for the fast bowlers.

Well bookmakers making England strong favs now. A wicket would change that. Lyon the main threat now
