    Don’t worry, you’ll pick it up in a flash.

    Yes, I'd have thought with TRJ out Plunkett would have been a better replacement. Great to see Woakes finding his form though having looked distinctly average when he played a Test in the summer.

    Anyway, Ball is in - I wish him well but I fear he'll be targeted.

    My education started this morning. Nice steady start, stopped for lunch, also raining so not sure when the 2nd session will start, the cricket's alright too

    Good day's play for lovers of Proper Cricket. I feared the worst when Cook went early, went to sleep shortly after Vince's orgasmic first cover drive, woke up to see him still in (albeit only for a few balls).

    Honours pretty much even I'd say.

    With Cook and Root out cheaply, the other batters have been doing OK. Useful confidence boost for them, especially if we can press on and get a decent score.

    Re: The Ashes

    Yep decent days play for us - win the toss and bat lose Cook and Root cheaply others have stepped up which was my concern that they wouldn't - solid start tomorrow not losing wickets early doors - Johnny B to come in and continue his prolific form - all in all good start to the series
