Check out this awesome e-fed:
Root gone for 24 in the England reply with Compton still there on 16* off 48. Needs to make it count if he's to give himself any chance.
Looks as if Sammy ran through the Mumbai "A" tail too; 3/44 to go with his 60 in the first knock. Making a pretty compelling case for inclusion, IMHO.

Can't be arsed linking but read an article on cricinfo yesterday that suggested Flower and Cook had basically ruled out opening with Trott or Bell, so I'd reckon Compton will be in the box seat in he can even get to 50 here while looking reasonably assured. It's an extremely tame attack by any standards so he really should be able to if he's in any sort of nick at all.
Haven't checked the score in about 10 minutes, mind, so he's probably already out or something.
Should point out that Root getting the best batsman on the opposition (by some distance) out could work in his favour. Bowled more than Samit (whose three wickets all came against the bottom four..) here, so his offies may even allow Bairstow to play ahead of Patel if he's preferred to Compton as opener.
