    To be honest, I don't think teams are that bothered if England do get off to a flyer because they know that the batsman will throw their wickets away. All the opposition have to do is hang in there and be patient.

    Too many batters out of form.

    Root, Bairstow, Stokes is a real problem. We’re getting the starts but not kicking on.

    Same players keep failing. Time we started dropping and rotating the middle order. Lawrence deserved another chance. A left field choice would be Jos Butler. He hasn't had a chance under Bazball. Might be what we're lacking with the shackles off.

    England collapses and the bbs moaning!

    It doesn’t matter if we win, let that sink in… when you’ve got your head around that fact life watching cricket becomes far more enjoyable

    Buttler is the last person you need anywhere near an England red ball team. His white ball stats recently aren’t that impressive either.

    Double century from Jaiswal, doing Bazball by the book! I really hope we go for a draw and wrong foot them!

    This going to be a rout unless the lower middle order can get some runs.

    Correct but the openers have been pretty good so far this series. Apart from one good knock from Ollie Pope, him, Root, Bairstow and Stokes have been pretty useless.
