4:00 am start
England expected to make a host of changes
England (possible): 1 Rory Burns, 2 Zak Crawley, 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Joe Root (capt), 5 Ben Stokes, 6 Ollie Pope/Jonny Bairstow, 7 Sam Billings (wk), 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Ollie Robinson, 10 Mark Wood, 11 Stuart Broad
Personally would go with Bairstow if any chance of him playing. He normally fields on boundary any way so injured thumb shouldn’t affect him doing that. Also he batted in 2nd innings with the injury.
I am sure Bairstow will want to play
as well.

Woakes over Anderson on that wicket. Unbelievable to what Woakes has offered with bat and ball.
Read that a Sheffield Shield game there lasted 3 days....😀

224 - 5 when I flicked it on and both Warner and Smith out for a duck - Robinson took both wickets, with Broad taking 2 and Woakes taking the other.

I also see we won the toss and started to field.

We let the Aussies off the hook again.
Marnus L was dropped on a duck by Crawley, so perhaps a top side may have restricted them to about 200, but that's cricket.

I didn't know that, I've just watched his dismissal, it is pure comedy gold.

Dan Lawrence should have been giving a bat. Why not through him in, surely it's a good experience for him. Stokes is not fit, the shot he played to get out, seemed a shot of an injured man, not fully committed.

Some really poor decisions made on this tour.

England start their WIndies tour with 5 T20 games and then 3 Test matches in a weeks time.
This awful tour will be be just a nightmare memory by then.
My consolation is I did not have BT.😀
