Ridiculous days test cricket. About sums up where England are at the moment.

Very much in transition under new management and captaincy. Bringing back Broad and Anderson. Still to bed in some youngsters. Will always take wickets but batting biggest issue. 

And the crazy appearance of Parkinson still to come. 

Should be worth tuning in tomorrow.

Excellent from Root today, he really is a treasure in an era where batting is over shadowed by the brilliance of bowlers on show and bowling friendly conditions. And well backed up by Foakes. 
 

Great start and great test match to hopefully kick off a new exciting era.

I see Parky has been immediately fucked off again in favour of tried and tested mediocrity

There is a common claim amongst commentators that he bowls too slowly. Now, that maybe true for the very top level, but we'll not know for sure until he's given a run, and an opportunity on wearing pitches.

Same claim was made before he was the best spinner in county cricket for 3 years running, and before he played 8 short format games for England with success. Now he's got Monty numb nuts Panedar writing articles about him failing after he bowled 14 overs and got the only wicket by a spinner on a green top.

Unfortunately England squad seems to be very cliquey and his face doesn't fit, whilst confident but limited players like Bess get decent runs in the team. For a new era there are remarkably few changes to a playing squad which was badly found out last winter.
