I don't blame the players anymore. They're just shit. I blame the ECB for destroying the red ball game in England.

Yes totally right. We are a joke in red ball cricket now!

It’s strange to me that a player with nearly 200 test wickets and 5 test hundreds who was man of the series last time these two test nations met had his central contract stopped, which we now know is the real reason he didn’t put himself up for selection in South Africa. They knew leach had a serious illness while out in New Zealand as well. Really bad management. 

Mo's batting and bowling is currently worse than Leach's.  Probably jumped before he was pushed in all honesty.

Labuschagne is an absolute find for the Aussies. Only got a chance in the Ashes due to the Smith concussion

Let's hope we bowl more than half decently.

We certainly did that.

Maybe our first innings was less embarrassingly poor than I claimed.

Jimmy Anderson is like Benjamin Button. Getting better and more effective as he gets older!

Stat on the BBC live feed

And it meant yet another five-fer for the imperious Anderson, who now averages 23.9 since his 30th birthday and 20.67 since his 35th.

They’ve just put a stat up about when Anderson took his first 5 wicket haul, half the team were under 6! Truly is one of the greats of the game, and just keeps going.

Stokes is just so destructively good. I mean heck knows why SA didn't take the new ball straight away, but their loss. Nearly there Dom, if Ben doesn't beat you first

this has been a demolishing. We started the day on 218.  Already at 350 with still 20 minutes to go before lunch. Spectacular stuff. Wonder at what point we declare. At lunch or until we get an arbitrary figure? Suspect we'll go for about 20 minutes after lunch.
