    The crowd looks a bit on the thin side, but 10.30 starts don't suit everyone.

    Gone!

    I've imagined how you might get around the anthem-singing if like me you're not a fan of the Queen, God, or even that big on saving people. But I suppose if you're an international sportsman it must grow on you after a while.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Great start. Jimmy getting it to swing. Didn't look out to me on first view, but on the initial replay it looked pretty close. Just a tad high, but we'll see on hawkeye.

    Anyone else just get "SLAVE VR", and feel vaguely threatened?

    Great start this. 2 massive early wickets. Look a different attack when there's swing!

    This ball-tampering must start early, mustn't it?

    That Amla wicket, surprising to say the least. Hope Jimmeh can snare at least one more in this opening spell, when he's swinging it like this he can kill them, I'd keep him on for at least 7 overs.
