Hopefully Bairstow will learn from that - Broad and Ball are both capable tailenders. In terms of wasted at seven, it would apply to either Bairstow or Moeen in fairness, and the dilemma will be further exacerbated when Stokes returns.

Yes that's one of them but not the one I was thinking of initially.

Am I the only one to think that unless England make a quick breakthough at the start of day 3 they are in big trouble

Not at all dpressed.

Each successive mmorning session has become increasingly critical. I did think,after a hour and a half today, that we were making decent progress towards a good score.

They need to find a way of getting Smith out. It's a bit like Jardine and the Bradman problem.
At the moment it's still fairly even but you sense England are running hard to keep it that way.

Moving on to day 4 with the game still in the balance but I don't think it's going to be a draw.

Need the two batsmen in, especially Root, to live up to his reputation and see off the fresh Aussie quicks in the first hour or so to hopefully allow England to build a decent lead.

I fear the game might come down to how effective Lyon could be and how ineffective Ali can be.

My word, that last hour of play was gripping stuff. Test cricket at it's best.

Anderson's apparent injury could be a huge blow for England in this series. A pace bowler also urgently needed to shoot out their tail.
