Looking forward to this one on Friday. In front of a well “mixed” crowd at edgebaston. Against arguably the best test side in the world.

For the delayed fifth test that is now basically a one test series.

Huge test following the NZ run chases.

Yes looking forward to it. Hopefully Jimmy is back. Stuart Broad on 549 test wickets. Hopefully bring up the 550. I'm just enjoying watching these 2 will for as long as we can as not sure how long either will keep going.

It has to be last chance Saloon for Crawley.

I do love it when we come up against India or Pakistan as they bring a few and make a right racket.

I've got the weekend off from today. So definitely my days filled. The missues will be well made up. Her response today was 'FFS I thought it finished last week'.

I really get wound up when I see blokes watching the cricket with other halfs. I've never found a missues who likes footy or cricket. Although the 'current' did enjoy Blackpool away. Yet even Watmore limbs didn't convert here lol.

Hopefully the weather is set fair ☀

I really enjoyed the NZ series, though I ultimately felt that 3-0 was a little flattering to England.

Though I think he's very good, Williamson really didn't fire in that series, and given that NZ were in each game, this could have been the difference.

India are a step further up, and may prove a bit of a reality check for England.

I'm looking forward to this one as I think India will "test" us over the 5 days and I don't expect we can knock off 200+in the 4th innings, like we did against NZ.

Should be a cracker, was at Edgbaston for England v India a few years back, 90% indian support, thousands outside without tickets having a street party.
Best atmosphere ever at a cricket match for me .
Enjoy

Liam Livingston in for Leach at No10 as the spinner 😂😂
I know you are only joking, but I think it can be confidently stated that even England wont drop a bowler after 10 wicket haul!

Bit harsh on Brook though, being left out (good for Yorks as playing Bears on Friday). Needs to brush up on his tea tray carrying - never mind only having 1 score below 50 all season!

When Leach is allowed to settle he looks like a good bowler, whenever someone looks to attack him he looks like a rabbit in headlights.

Things can change quickly, two decent sessions one bad one.
Could still get them out for less than 390 and it's up for grabs.
Good nights rest for the bowlers needed

Not too sure about that, we've let them off the hook by bowling short on a pitch that will reward line and length.

Hopefully we will get it right in the morning and our openers put on a show, Jadaja will be key.
