    I'd have happily taken 30-0 after 10, so this is fine. A few streaky shots but Cook, for one, has earned a bit of good fortune. The test, as usual, will be how they play the spinners.

    Looked a nothing ball at first, just went through the gate, but it may have come back a touch. Cook looked as if he was expecting it to miss off, and then at the last second he had to play it.

    Well deserved. As has been apparent from the Pak series, Ishant's finally getting back to a good wrist-action. Needs to start swinging the ball in to be able to bowl full consistently though.

    Yeah, he has had a good comeback in ODI's, especially in the helpful games.

    But still needs to get that seam position right for tests.

    Hope he can get back closer to the pace he was bowling at in the Aus series as well.

    He is tall, so even if he is bowling lesser pace it doesn't matter that much as long as he can get the length fuller and seam position right.

    In ODI's batsman have to play his shorter bowls more outside off, but in tests they'll just leave it or miss the edge.

    Yeah, someone playing half his tests in India can't depend on seam movement alone.

    The key for this spell from Sharma has been that he's finally found a consistent good length, as oppose to bowling his stock ball a foot too short and occasionally overcompensating.
    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.

    Just tuned in and noted that Dernbach isn't playing. Dropped or injured?

    The length is the effect rather than the cause. He has tried to bowl fuller earlier as well. But he has been punished because he was doing nothing with the ball. So he had to pull back his length (). Now he has a little consistent movement going, he can afford to pitch it up more.

    Dropped.

    England then put in their first solid bowling performance of the series, curiously

    Must be a coincidence
