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

420-8. 500 looks a long way off now - it sounds like we've largely been excellent with the ball today.

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.

We need the last two wickets pdq for not many runs, then bat and bat and bat........ till lunch on the final day if neccessary.

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.

Talking about follow ons already, that's pessimistic even for me.

Roland-jones holed out trying to press the pace against Adil. Not the first...

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.

Nice set of people in the stand.

Probably as good as could be expected given the overnight score.

The flip side of course is that perhaps batting isn't as easy as it looked yesterday. Is it still bright sunshine down there?
