getting all out stops Root from being criticized from declaring early, or late
If India end tomorrow 8 or 9 wickets down with no hope of knocking off the huge target set
by our (ridiculous) decision to bat out the whole order, Root will get plenty of (deserved) flak.
I mean since tea, we were plodding along with no urgency for quick runs on the board, etc.
All far too pedestrian and playing into Kohli's hands big time.
Convincing win. Great spell from Anderson.
227 is a really big win.
Probably our best away victory.
Nice win by England, Anderson is getting better. Leach had a good 2nd innings as well.
Very good batting, bowling and fielding performance in the match by England
'Worldy' catches by both Root and Stokes. That alone does wonders for team spirit and morale.
Haven't seen the Stokes one, but Anderson did well in the first innings off Archer I thought
England squad for second Test: Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Ben Foakes (w), Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Ollie Pope, Dom Sibley, Ben Stokes, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes.
Anderson, Buttler rested.
Olly Stone of Norwich starts for England in the second test just started. India won the toss and are batting.
India going pretty quickly at the start!
Fightback for England at the end of the day, Root isn't a bad bowler to be honest
What happened to our top order?
Our overseas winning streak is going to be ended at six unfortunately.
The wicket is a disgrace.
Not surprised as India are desperate to win.
No wicket should turn square on the 1st day.
Might just as well have flipped a coin and whoever won it gets the game!
I heard years ago that in India you look for the colour of the soil, the squares will usually have two different soil types a red and a black one. The red is the slow turner that starts to disintegrate when you get into day 3 and 4. The black is the rank turner that turns immediately on day 1 and starts to fall apart on day 2.
First match = Red soil
Second match = Black soil
Is it more unfair than a green top at Trent Bridge in May/June?
Fair comment zk.
Perhaps a way round this is to do away with the toss, and give the visiting team the option to bat or field first.
They have been discussing that and I don't think it is a bad option. I think it would lead to interesting games. I only recently found out that in the 1990s in England teams that won the toss got the choice of ball as well, Readers or Dukes
England win the toss and bat.
2 for 1,Sibley a duck
Bairstow a duck.
Crawley looks OK. Scored all the runs so far.
He got his 50 and then got out... 4 down at lunch, hummm
