    Was going to say earlier on Birds last ball of his spell that they need a short catching cover to Cook.

    This sort of pitch isn't really ideal for Siddle. Given Watto's bowling performance so far, I'm glad we've played a spinner.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    If Haddin had done his job in the 2nd innings at Lord's then there wouldn't even be any debate about it. Not that I rate Compton particularly highly, so I suspect we're screwed either way.

    I've been sold a dummy with this pitch. Was fully expecting it to do quite a bit off the deck, at least on the first morning, and not offer much in the air. Actually looks really dry though - not much movement for Bird or Siddle at all - but swing for Watto.

    If Siddle wasn't such a ****, and could keep his foot behind the line we'd be one step closer to getting rid of him too. I'm not a massive Compton fan either, but I reckon he'd do a better job at the top than Root, and Root will do a FAR better job at 6 than Bairstow.

    Always does a bit here, although Durham actually pick the best bowlers - such as Onions - unlike England.
