    Another wicket following a no ball for Bumrah, all too familiar from Eng.

    some tight bowling and test match batting has broken out in Edgbaston rain interruptions mean Shami & Bumrah have been able to bowl loads.

    Bazball not suiting root, poor batting from him and scratchy.

    Shami starts a new spell and Bairstow goes after him first ball, brainless for someone on a ton having faces 140 balls.

    Can you beat a Sunday with TMS on the radio, Ebony Rainford Brent's giggle, Aggers, Mann and even Dan Norcross is growing on me, all whilst having no kids around and suiting myself for Sunday lunch which turns out is homemade brown seeded bread, lashings of butter and some shop bought soup paired with a bottle of 14.5% Garnacha. I have a few 30 minute gaps in the day where i strongly suspect i nodded off and a grumpy moment berating Ellie for waking me up. I used to hate Sundays and old people dosing, now....not so much

    It's a good backup for when the race has finished and there's no footy on, granted.

    118 to get with 7 wickets in hand, plenty to go wrong as its Eng. The batting so far has probably taken the new ball out of the equation with 23 overs left. If Eng get this it'll be their highest 4th Inns test chase.

    This record run chase is looking like a piece of piss.

    ^ You'd like to think they couldn't fuk it up but....

    Positive was the openers, particularly Lees and even Crawley stopped himself fishing around for wide ones. I'd like to see him stay in, he just needs to address the plays he didn't need to make, hopefully Root has put him straight.

    They have a full day to get it. Should be easy. 1.1 run rate required.

    I wish England would slow down the run rate a bit.

    I was hoping to listen to this match before dinner but now it's looking like I'll have to go in and converse with the wife before we eat.

    FFS... it's difficult supporting England at times.

    I have to go in and sort tea out now.

    That was impressive, achieved at almost 5 an over as well.

    It's not a big deal, but all I'm saying us that I wish we'd make a game of it.

    Those guys are paid by the day... I wish they could stretch it out a bit for the supporters.
