Great start but the same problems persist/

Cook poor.
Root can't convert a 50.
Malan can't score a run.
Bairstow gets himself in and gives his wicket away.
No runs from the supposedly deep batting line up.

I wont write them off completely until India have had a bat but I don't hold out much hope, we simply don't have a bowler on the same planet as Ravi Ashwin.

The most enjoyable thing about watching the England test team is watching Anderson bowl. A true great of the game, looking forward to tomorrow.

Boycott always says if you're batting add on 2 wickets to what's on the scoreboard to keep you grounded...in the case of England they need to add on 5 these days.

I rate Stokes, especially as a batsman, but that dismissal on top of one or two similar recently belongs in club cricket.

Kohli was dropped on 21, though. England like to do things the hard way. It will be interesting to see if the selection of Rashid pays off, nothing special so far. Disgraceful kick in the teeth for county cricket players to have Rashid selected ahead of them.

Root is a good batsman and at 27 you would expect him to be showing leadership qualities, but I’m not sure if he is Captain material at the moment

I think I might shed a tear when he retires.

There are no words to describe how good he is.

You can't.

We are also about to find out how good a player Alastair Cook was.

An absolute class act, on and off the field.

Perhaps now he's announced his retirement the ECB can get over their weird idea of not picking Rory Burns because he's left handed.

No doubt instead we'll see some one-day dasher who averages 27 in red ball cricket given a chance first.

Deservedly lost again.  Windies are full value for 2-0.

England have lost the art of Test Match Batting which is to occupy the crease and wear down the bowlers.  The talent is there, just too much white ball cricket has led to muddled thinking.

I'm pleased Bayliss is going, he never seems to give much insight during interviews.
