England's ability to collapse is never ending. 77 All out is abysmal. I bet they pick the same batsmen and drop Rashid and Curran for Broad and Woakes for the next test though. The batsmen very rarely get dropped in these circumstances.

I don't think it counts as live discussion as it's the change of innings, so if it does I apologise.

But that was an absolute shambles.

I love Rashid, but I think this is his last test outside the subcontinent.

I think that's his last test full stop. You can't go at more than 6.5 rpo in a test no matter the conditions. When Root bowls more overs than Rashid for about half the runs you know he is in trouble.

Proper 90s selection for the next test. Jennings back after one game out, Foakes dropped after a handful of matches.

Lathwell must be as close as he's ever been to a recall.

Mark Illot is loosening up in anticipation of replacing Curran as the left arm seamer.

I noticed that Roy's been called up for some England Lions games including some four day stuff. They wouldn't bother him for that if they didn't have test plans for him, would they? The dream's still on!

This is it.

Now or never. Get him in for the Ashes. Starc can't swing it since they stopped cheating. The dream of 65-1 off 7 overs is still on.

While the Test side may be struggling the One Day side has got to the point where it can chase down 360 without struggling. Roy definitely looked like a Test opener, 123 off 85 is positively pedestrian.

Ridiculous how in control of that chase they were. When a team chases down a big target, they almost always look in trouble at some point and England didn't. Quite worried that I now expect England to win every ODI, never felt like this before.

Anybody following the South Africa vs Sri Lanka series? Sri Lanka will be chasing 197 to win the series, which is an unbelievable turnaround considering their recent fortunes. Always fun seeing South Africa choke.

The Saffers are excellent chokers and always fun to watch. 

England have thrown that second ODI away. Stokes has reviewed his dismissal, and was so out even Stuart Broad wouldn't review it. That has then led to Curran not having a review for his LBW which was genuinely one of the worst decisions I've seen. I'd get killed for giving a decision like that on a Saturday, and these are international umpires. Dreadful.
