Stuart Broad was given the pink ball this morning for the first time so he could have a bowl and give his thoughts. He thought it was superb to bowl with, something to do with the seam being a bit thicker and the lacquer covering. Used in the County Championship today for the first time I believe.

Another magnificent half-century from Joe Root, the quickest 50 scored by an England captain

Great to see Anderson back too !

Yes, good old Joe. Flicking between the ladies final and the cricket. Stokes is finding it hard out there...

Don't think Jennings is a test player, fairly sure Ballance isn't a test player. Dawson has never had the skills or temperament to be a test player.

No idea where this Dawson is good enough thing has come from, would have thought there were a dozen better test spinners out there Mason Crane included (though he is a true number 11) I do think Crane has the tools to become the best leg spinner we've had since I can remember but maybe Rashid for now, as he can bat and field

Dawson is a good tie down one end limited overs bowler so no problem with him in the 50 over team and maybe the 20/20 version. Apparently Root wanted him to play so he got in.
