    Well Bell has come out in a positive mood. Will it pay off?

    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

    Bell out already, and the ball is swinging all over the place. At least Cook seems to be in decent form.

    I don't see England as a poor team. To me, they are perhaps, a spinner, an all rounder, and a batsman short of being a very good test side. Add to this, some belief and a bit more convincing captaincy then I think that we would be very difficult to beat. New Zealand are a very similar side to England, so it goes to show how a bit of aggressive captaincy and belief can make all the difference and that is why I expect them to win this test.

     

    Oh and to add, I think that this is a wonderful Test Match wicket, with something for everyone.

    For me the batting lineup is mostly fine. I want to see Lyth given a chance, and from I've seen he seems to be a more attacking player than the previous partners for Alastair Cook have been. However if it doesn't work out with him, I believe Alex Hales should be given a chance- he's a very dangerous, aggressive player who can take the game away from teams. England had a lot of success when they had the aggression of Trescothick at the top of the order and Hales would offer something similar.

     

    Great to see Cook finding form again, and Root is looking fantastic- averaging in the high 50s after 26 games is exceptional! Buttler and Stokes will only get better the more games they play.

     

    The one area to look at for me is the spinner- this is a really important summer for Moeen Ali. Can he prove that last summer's success wasn't just a flash in the pan? England have Rashid (who will be favoured by Gillespie I imagine) and Simon Kerrigan (who was dropped after one bad game against Australia, but is an attacking left arm spinner) waiting in the wings if needed.

    brainless batting has marred what was otherwise a fine knock

    a poor captain tactically he might be, but Cook has led by example today with a fine, tough, gritty innings and a deserved century....Rain has temporarily stopped play with Eng 261/4, leading by 127

    And I think that is the fastest Lords century in a test.

    Great innings by Stokes fastest hundred at lords. Allowed Cook to crawl along quietly keeping one end propped up. Good performance so far from England.

    You misinterpreted "needs time", I was meaning needs time to bowl Kiwis out.

    Personally, I think making the game safe is more important than pushing for a possible victory tomorrow. England have been in deep trouble twice in this test and have fought back superbly each time, they won't want that to be in vain. It's worth bearing in mind that the Kiwis have Guptill, Williamson, McCullum, Taylor, and Anderson in their side, so chasing down a target of, say, 340 would be perfectly possible on what still seems to be a perfect batting wicket.

    I disagree Bish, it sends out totally the wrong message and goes against the brand of cricket that Strauss is trying to sell to the public

     

    so far this morning it's the same old safety first brand of cricket that has been hurting england for the past few years.....eng are 467/8, 333 ahead, and still Cook won't declare....very poor captaincy, yet why am I not surprised?
