    I think Knight, Shinnie and Watson would work. All the graft and a little bit of craft.

    Every time Dom Bess comes on to bowl, Sunil Gavaskar (who knows a bit) says 'this is a real opportunity for India'.

    Trouble is, we don't have many options. 
    We chose to go in with four bowlers plus Root. 
    It's 38 degrees so the fast bowlers can't bowl a lot. 
    We have to hope that Bess somehow finds a wicket to get his confidence back. 
    I wouldn't have picked him anyway as I think he's massively overrated.

    Brilliant spin bowling by India but I can’t help thinking we are still too defensive. We wait for the four ball but take too few ones and twos. 
     
    If you just defend, the bowlers can try all their variations. Those who have scored runs in these conditions are the ones that kept the scoreboard ticking along.

    We're 100 runs short of par at least.  That pitch did almost nothing for 50 overs.  Then there was a bit of extra turn and bounce, but we just played poorly. Crawley - completely gave it away, Sibley fell for the straight ball again, Bairstow - caught on the crease, Root - likewise (although was a good ball), Stokes - straight ball playing a lazy shot, Pope - extremely unlucky, Lawrence - moment of madness after playing nicely, Foakes - didn't get in, Ashwin had started to make it talk by then...
    Should have been 250-5 on that pitch at the close.
    They look demoralised and not in the frame of mind required to really push the best side in the world at home. To be fair though, being locked in a bubble probably doesn't help.

    The Terror is worth a look. Starts on BBC 2 tonight. Great atmosphere. There is a trailer but might have spoilers.

    I said in the lead up to the game that we had a number of players that looked out of love with the game due to the heavy workload. 
    Clarke is going through the motions. He is passing backwards because it's easy. He hands off forwards to other players because it's easy. I'm not seeing the fight in him at the moment. 
    Similarly Buchanan has regressed a bit. He is without a doubt a very promising young player and he will make mistakes as he learns. 
    His thinking is just a bit scrambled right now and he is getting caught repeatedly by players who cut inside him. I have seen him run the ball out of play through small lapses in concentration. All the things you do when you aren't playing well or in rhythm with your game. 
    Both just need a short rest. 
    Mengi hasn't looked great so far but I'm sure he will be. Edmundson looks like a defender from Oldham playing in the championship but again will get better. 
    Baningime showed flashes but as others have pointed out, looks no better than Watson. 
    But up front? 
    OMG we are weak. Even Waghorn looked good just through body language.

    It's usually my son-in-law contacting me with the score! 
    Mind you, it's normally nil nil.
    You're right in that I should go into a time lapsed bubble until it's all over.
