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

    Spot fixing from Siddle.

    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.

    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.
