I think if Broad and Anderson had got first shot on that wicket things might have been different...That said, the state of the wickets in the WI should never come as a shock to a touring team!

Luckily I don't support those robbing barstewards at Sky so I listen on the steam wireless. Mind you, that doesn't make the torture any easier to bear.

We never had much luck today but thatís cricket. I had a bet we would bowl them out today. Lost. And broad and Anderson would take 2 wickets each. Lost. Anderson was in a right mood.

This England side are a colossal joke. Denly's out in the 1st innings was the worst stroke i think i have ever witnessed in test match history.

England seem more interested in scoring 50 in 10 balls than they are in surviving the first 10 overs of the new ball, then taking it too the bowlers. There is clearly a lack of authority in the team, and to me they need the Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer treatment. **** the nicely nicely approach, just go in screaming and shouting.

The wicket was bad, but no where near as bad as it was made out imo. England incompetence is more to blame, at this rate we're set to lose the series 3-0, be the laughing stock of test cricket and quite frankly should give Australia the Ashes right now to save the embarrassment of bothering to play them.

DISGUSTING

rant over.

So denly is in for jennings, and I'd imagine Broad will be in over leach

Looking for a big performance in this match, and hopefully denly can score some runs in the next two tests to cement his place for the ashes, we really don't need any uncertainty over the openers

Well that was a severe drubbing by a team I think we were expected to beat. Unless we get the 1,2 3 in the batting order sorted out before the Ashes starts, we shall be in trouble. Two test to go out in the Windies to start that process. Frankly I'd be calling up Rob Key and begging Tressie to return to the fold!

Roy for me.
Hales only signed up for white ball cricket.
Can't believe the Windies not attacking in the field.

Is denly next in line for the opening spot?
There's always room for another all-rounder

I can't see jennings opening against aus.
I wouldn't mind seeing Roy or hayles given a go, at least if they only last three overs there will be 30 runs on the board

I think on some English wickets he could take the new ball, but not on this type that need a bit more pace. I wouldn't drop broad in English conditions though. Woakes would have been a better choice than rashid here.
After years of crying out for a decent all-rounder it's baffling to see only one specialist bowler

They read the pitch wrong thinking it will be a spinners wicket. Agree with Curran but he's not a new ball bowler
and they won't drop Anderson so it was Broad that got the boot on a pitch that would have been perfect for him.

I can't understand why Broad was left out, granted currans stature has risen to the point he shouldn't be dropped, but why two spinners on that pitch?
I can only think he's having problems with the changes he's had to make to his action.
This series is gonna test stokes' fitness, given his history I can't see him getting through bowling 40 overs a match, and with the world Cup round the corner I hope someone else can step up to reduce his workload.

I'm quite liking the talksport commentary too, especially now I don't have to hear boycotts doom and gloom

Whilst not taking anything away from the Windies bowlers surely we can't bat as bad as we did in the 1st innings.
They certainly read the pitch wrong when picking the team.
Problem is they can't trust the batting so bowlers like Leach don't get a look in cos he can't bat like Ali or Rashid.
Still be a good one to win.

That pitch did nothing yesterday, the lower order should provide some entertainment....

Hopefully not before the evening session though

There are more recent threads than this one Ken, the cricket threads only seem to get posted in after the bad days though.
