Nice flurry from Broad at the end there.

I still don't think we'll see a result in this one, which is a shame because it's got the makings of another good match.

About 150 more than I thought at 1200 today, if I’m honest.
I like it. What is it?

Windies making a match out of it.

They should drop Broad more often. He’s playing like an all-rounder in this match.

Wondering what’s going on now. Is the plan to gradually injure them all until they forfeit? Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to see the openers doing their thing but we need to get a shift on if we want a result given that tomorrow is going to be a washout.

Fantastic achievement.

superb really. when he started out i never envisaged his bowling would ever get nearly as good as it did, had him down as a likely, y'know, failed england all-rounder, david capel-style.

Great bit of fielding by Dommy B for that run out.

All over.

Bit of a shame really. I want the windies to be good again, but after a promising start, the last two tests have been a bit of a capitulation.

Stolen from the wags on r/cricket -

Don't want this series to end. It's been the most brilliantly village series ever:

- Stokes bowling 11 overs in a row then opening the batting.

- Massive miserable fast bowler who refuses to bat or field on principle.

- An opening batsman so boring that his own team want him to get out.

- A 22 stone off spinner without a run up who tries to mow everything over midwicket.

- A tiny 13 year old (Curran) who still gets wickets and hits it miles.

- A 38 year old who's still the best bowler in the league.

- The match referee is one of the players' dads.

- And most importantly, the debut of Hugh Jardon.

Ireland 79-7 against Yorkshire* a little while ago but still hanging on, just about.

*Well, technically it's England & Wales but the wickets have been overwhelmingly Willey and Rashid.

I absolutely loved that. I think it might be my favourite sport documentary ever. I think I’m due a rewatch actually.

As we don’t have a reliable 3, Root bats there even though he prefers 4 and his record is far better when batting in that position. Buttler is selected for his batting due to the length of the tail, although his achievements in that regard are mainly in white ball cricket. He is also selected to keep wicket, despite not doing so at county championship level and being pretty poor at catching, stumping and saving byes. Pope is the alternative keeper, although his experience is very limited. Bess is our only spinner on a pitch that Shane Warne reckons will take a lot of spin, despite Bess having been on loan at Yorkshire for part of the 2019 season as he couldn’t get a game for his county. Meanwhile, potentially the best England spinner, Rashid, isn’t playing at all, having been part of the England one-day side. Have I understood the England strategy correctly?
