    Southee is so much better when the ball is swinging. Still doesn't look at his best action-wise but is improving.

    Even the direct hits done properly lose next to no time. The cost/benefit must be overwhelmingly positive for England, with all their analysts, to use it. Watch this from 09:11 through to 11:34, particularly the Hughes run-out at 10:29.

    Personally, the difference even in little drills is noticeable versus taking the ball behind the stumps, and I use it as much as possible when I'm dealing with throws... unless the fielder's got a spray gun arm.

    Huge wicket ! First time Southee lands a perfectly consistent over and he strikes.

    Couldn't have 3 more better wickets either; Cook, Trott & Bell.

    I'm very pleased that Compton is out. The reality is that players like Compton and Fulton are never going to be able to deal with pitched up swing bowling.

    For some reason England decided to gift Fulton a century by bowling short and not trying to swing the ball. Thank god we haven't done the same thing with Compton.

    Need to keep the pressure on - next question - can Wagner land it on the cut strip when he comes on? Surely will be better than last night.

    Lovely from Boult! Ball didn't do a huge amount but think Bairstow's lack of recent match play made it that much harder for him. Didn't really time anything all innings.
