Crawley spills Vihari...but makes up for it with snaffling Purjara next over!

Kohli comes in...

India are rattling along here.

They're going after Leach, hopefully they'll come unstuck soon.

22 off the last over. Seems the new-look England aren't the only test side who like swinging the bat from time to time. 286-5.

Just caught up on this. Being done at our own game at the moment. 4.76 the rr is currently.

Yet again a team is 5 for peanuts and goes on with a massive stand (3rd/4th time this summer)

Root gets Pant as I type. 146 out, great innings (of what I saw).

Not sure about this bowling and field from Stokes. Odd. - worked though (well bowling 8 ball overs did)

Yup, they will have 380 to defend. Let's see how our gung ho approach goes against Bumrah and co.

I'm fearing the worst....

What the hell is this over from Broad?

We are garbage against the tail end and Stokes seems to be just as bad as those before him.

35 off the over, the most EVER in Test cricket.

Broad...dear me.

Stop. Trying. To. Bounce. Out. Tailenders.

How many times does it have to be said? Just aim for top of off stump for Christ's sake.

Absolutely atrocious bowling and possibly captaincy.

If you haven't seen that over, it really does need to be seen to be believed. It was absolutely appalling bowling, leg side bouncers, full tosses the lot. Bumrah with the bat makes us completely lose our heads.

The bloke averaged TWO before last summer. It is beyond stupid how we enable these rabbits but we seem to do it so often.

Broad has only taken 5 wickets in an innings 5 times since his 8/15 spell. That's 73 tests, Anderson over the same time frame has taken 14 five wicket hauls over the same time period and Jack Leach has four.

Broad needs to be dropped he hasn't been bad but he isn't running through teams anymore and is averaging 35+ with the ball over the past two years.

Has anyone dined put off one score for so long?

From the BBC

‘Zak Crawley, since his remarkable 267 against Pakistan he's got 20 single figure scores and is averaging 18.’

Time to give someone else a go, times on Zaks side and he might get another go.

TBH with the amount of driving he does, maybe F1 would be more his thing. He'd obviously be out after the 1st lap...
