    Thought he'd go off. Glad he seems ok.

    England's ground fielding has been pretty poor so far today.

    And ouch. Poor Shane. Finally gets to the 90s again, and he wears one.
    That was Edgbaston I think.

    Nah that was Edgbaston. Notoriously bad seeing ground for some reason.

    will be glad when Broad comes off, really not sure what's causing all the issues, but good short balls really do the trick sometimes.

    Best thing that can happen is Clarke farming the strike a bit here, but I suppose he's not playing Broad well so it's tough.

    I think it was because there were executive boxes behind the bowler's arm which had blacked out windows, so if you had a tall bowler bowling from that end and were trying to watch the ball in his hand from the moment he started his run up it would be really difficult to see the ball as he enters his delivery stride because the ball would come out of the blackness of the windows.

    Broad's bowled some seriously good spells that have gone without reward in this series. Could have taken so many wickets if he'd taken wickets during every good spell.

    Clarke has episodes where he really does not see the short ball, this is one of them. Yet to see if it's completely messing up his footwork this time around though.
