    Spirit tonight. Us on Tuesday. Both can regret not having a top order batter still in at the end. Boundaries can always be scored at the death, big runs can be racked up. Trent themselves have shown it twice now this week, first with Hales then with Short.

    They just announced on Sky that Ben Stokes is taking an indefinite break with immediate effect from all forms of cricket to concentrate on his mental well-being.

    Just get yourself right Ben, cricket needs you.

    Been a very tough year for him with his dad's death on top of everything else. Just make sure you're in the right frame of mind when you come back Ben, even if you miss the Ashes.

    I'm pleased a number of elite sportsmen and women are putting their mental health number one on their agendas. Life for many of us is difficult enough without the huge weight of expectation that performing at the highest level brings. Add the microscope of media attention and social media abuse and it's no wonder more are choosing to step out of the limelight.

    He deserves it, and I’m marginally less upset by the Brave losing him than when Somerset lost him to the Brave.
