    Pitch is turning already, and we pick 3 front line seamers + Stokes and 1 spinner +Root.
    Looks ominous

    112 all out.
    Stokes drops one he would normally catch.

    Fantastic stadium

    He is known as K.A. At least I would hope so.

    Root with five for just eight runs. Now the batsmen need to get probably 200 to put massive pressure on India's second innings. Root the all rounder. Wow! I type Root and it auto correct to Foot every time. Strange, Root is a word in the English language I believe.

    Don't worry we are losing wickets faster than runs. At this rate chasing 50 on this pitch could be a challenge!

    I thought the last pitch was a disgrace, but this one is an absolute joke.
    You cannot have this type of pitch for a Test match.
    ICC needs to investigate.
    This type of pitch will kill Test cricket

    Last one lasted longer than this, we're most of the way through the 3rd innings at 75-7 with a lead of 42 only on the 2nd day! .... a lead of 75 would be a challenge on this wicket I think!

    India playing Twenty 20 in this innings.
    Why didn't Bairstow, Root or Stokes adopt that approach.
    No way can you survive on this pitch by defending
    35 - 0

    Stokes did try it in the second innings, but batting is a lottery and their spinners are better than ours so fairly quickly he was out.

    Still doesn't mean that this joke of a pitch was acceptable. I mean the second game India were able to score decent runs and the wicket was better than this one. On this one, neither team was able to score. Joe Root got a fifer for 8 runs in j6.2 overs, a part time spin bowler should not be able to do that on day two of test. Indian supporters don't care though, all they want to do is win, but the game didn't even last 2 days. Pathetic!

    Same ground a different wicket on the same square will be used, much like the first two tests. Due to reduced travel because of covid.

    England 66/6 second innings. What the devil's going on?
    We're in disarray and going to lose by an innings here. <wah>

    Poor batting
    Poor selection.
    Poor bowling.
    Outplayed by better team.
