Typical England start

Leave it to YJB and Mo to save the innings later

Hope it's a competitive series (obviously with England winning)

The pink ball is being used because it's easier to pick up in the transition from twilight to flood light. But the white ball doesn't have that problem in D/N games? Why not use a white ball?

They don't want to play tests in coloured clothes. Too much of a tradition to sweep away.

State of the Windies attack

Edgbaston looking good under the lights. But it's still Bloody Edgbaston.

It does indeed look good. Enjoyed this evenings play.

Changed my plans for tomorrow night now from doing nothing to doing nothing but watching the cricket
