Anyone else watching or following?

England 67/3 - Cook on 44 and Bairstow on 7.

Stoneman, Root and Malan out cheaply.

Pakistan bowling nicely but England steadying the ship and starting to move forward.

When are we going to find an opening batsman who can score double digits?

I'm listening in - going on Saturday.

Bairstow gone now. 100/4, looking a little tricky.

Cool, I'll give you a shout. Not sure of plans yet, I've got another mate somewhere in the ground as well.

Now to try and find WiFi so I can stream the rugby!

I think they were expecting the cloud to p*ss off pretty quickly - but it didn't.

180/9

Are we putting this down to first test of the season syndrome?

You'd wonder if Pakistans test against Ireland on a pretty green pitch in Dublin a couple of weeks ago has influenced how they're bowling. Lots of wickets falling to balls that were pitched up and moved off the pitch, which you wouldn't expect on a dryer pitch in the summer proper. England batsman driving straight down the line and getting bowled.

Buttler's recall went well :evil:

Having a 7 who has hardly seen a red ball for 2 years, and no Woakes or Ali (or proper all rounders) in the tail - makes for a pretty weak lower order - batting down to 9 has, in recent years, been our main strength - now we've given that up as well.

Cook was doing really well against his least favourite kind of bowling attack. Shame no one else bothered to stick with him.

They were thinking that they didn’t want to bat 4th in a wicket that is quite dry underneath.

Stoneman will never be a Test cricketer whilst he has a hole in his arse.

I don't know much about him, and I don't follow domestic cricket so much these days but he seems to have a very moderate first-class record for a test batsman..

Always a good plan to play off the back foot against spin..... when you can't read spin.

Not as dim as Sarfraz yesterday who should be stripped off the captaincy for sheer f**kwitedness.

So Buttler is in the side as a batsman only coming in at 7. I thought the Aus selectors are dumb.

Good job it was Pakistan and not England giving Ireland their first test, on this evidence.

Any chance Bayliss could fudge off now?

I was at Lords yesterday - glad we didn't choose today!

At least we saw some reasonable batting from Paklistan plus a bit of goodish England bowling, thought it did all end in a rather farcical mixture of misses and drops.

And England come out with a sub fielder in place of Mark Wood. If he can’t get ready for day 4 of a test as a front line bowler in a team needing very quick wickets then there is something very wrong.
