    He looks the type of batsman you'd want to keep in, block, block bash, block. Good way to slow your partner down too.

    Guess we would have taken 50-1 after 10. Decent start without getting off to a flyer.

    Reasonable powerplay for both teams. Little bit more in the surface for bowlers than previous pitches but also a good batting deck.

    From the little I've seen, Hales is a good hitter with a poor technique whilst Roy is just rank at this level.

    Both make Lynn look like Bradman

    Santners action always looks so ugly. Plus he isn't really getting any turn. England should get going now, especially with rain due in later.

    Would have preferred a bit more Milne here. Went past the edge a bit and slightly variable bounce means a miscue off the shortball not unlikely.

    Anderson and Santner make this feel like over 32 already.

    Chris Lynn? Bloke has never made a list A hundred. Miles behind either of these two, comparing him to Hales is laughable.

    True. I forgot he has hit a lot of Citibank Maximums, and KFC big bad special shots which were nearly caught by some D list celebrity standing on a platform.
