And Ryan, having declined to exert himself in the field to Patto's bowling, makes amends by taking off Simpson's bail on 49. Reward for one who did not look like he wanted another spell before lunch ! That's the fourth clean bowled, I think. We are keeping to the task
A vg morning for us. We restricted them to just 84 runs and got 4 wickets, which is exceptional considering they would have been looking to score as quickly as they could.
Yes a very good morning with sensible use of our bowlers. We need to keep it tight after lunch and get them out for under 450. Well done Adil and well done to the skipper for choice of bowlers today and keeping them under control. Come on batsmen!
If we keep them under 450 then we'll need no more than 300 to avoid the follow on. Not sure they'd enforce it unless the conditions were right but it would be a huge psychological advantage.
And Finn plumb in front of middle stump on the back foot. Tried looking bemused but didn't work. Last six for 100 runs. So far, so good.
