    Blimey, a really good review from Root...slips didn't seem that interested but he sent it up stairs and there was a faint snick, Warner gone, fair play Root !

    Looked like a gap between bat and ball to me, but Warner gone for very little again. He should have been dropped but Australia don't have anyone to bring in.

    The Australian batting line up is just as poor as England bar The Man.

    Funny to read comments of 'careless' and 'sloppy' when the aggressive style of play was called for on a number of occasions in the past when such positive match positions were wasted due to slow scori

    in all the doom and gloom for the aussies, there is one glimmer of hope....             ...in the form of a promising young batsman who top scored for them.....goes by the name of Extras .....l

    must admit it did look like a gap there......and interestingly Labaschagne just wafted at one down the leg side, no one appealed and there was a definite noise which can only have been bat, eng missed a trick there I think

    Also he’s scored more boundaries (85 and counting)  in this series than Warner has runs (84) !

    Feel sorry for Smith.  His scoring would be even higher if the Ozzies had someone to stay in with him.

    This is actually a rather ordinary Ozzie team aside from Smith.

    The Crazy thing about Steve Smith is that his average is going up and up, 65 now which is almost unheard of....Only the great Don Bradman has a better average over an extended career in the whole of test match cricket history, astonishing!

    I don't know why he doesn't open.

    He can clearly handle the new ball as he's been in while it's still new in virtually every innings.

    Warner was averaging 48.2 after the sandpaper Test

    His average is now 45.72

    Steve Smith was averaging 61.38 after the sandpaper Test, he is now averaging 65.57

    Maybe England should have looked at footage of Smith's batting against the South African bowlers before ths series because his record against them is nowhere as good as it is against most other teams.

    England closed the day 294 & 9-0 giving a lead of 78 a good day with the bat tomorrow, and they'll be in a good position to draw the series

    Batting wise yes, but they have excellent bowlers, i think recent quality Aussie bowlers have been not given the credit they deserve really because people judge them by the early naughties attack including McGrath and Warne, someone said that Patrick Cummins is not in James Anderson's league, Anderson is a world class bowler who has stood the test of time with not far off 600 wickets at less than 27, of course Cummins hasn't been going as long but he averages 21 and a half and plays half his games on flat pitches in Australia.

    A great day for Archer but Root is over bowling him. Pity we don't have another with pace who could share the load a bit. The other thing what root can do is bowl in short bursts. If we are not careful we run the risk of burning the lad out and shortening his career.

    Denley misses out on a maiden century. Root fails again and Stokes hits another half century. 249 for 5 and a steady fall of wickets since we've passed 200. Thankfully we have a first innings lead.

    Talk about Root's captaincy, I am not sure Paine is that great a captain. He is diabolical on deciding what to review and he is a wicketkeeper!! When Stokes was flying at Headingley, he was like a rabbit caught in headlights and he puts England in first when he is 2-1 up in the series.

    Damn go and have a shave and England lose two wickets. Pity I wanted Butler to get a least fifty.
