How many overs did england bat?
27.5
Absolutely laughable
It happens so often as well now.
As has been said packing the side with one day specialists has to be a major factor.

4 quick wickets and ENG are back in the hunt. A target of around 300 runs is possible for ENG to chase. Plenty of time left and the pitch should become flatter. Heaps of good batsmen in this side.

Roy, Denly, Bairstow and Buttler.

All should fuck off out of the team.
Couldn't agree more. Roy and Denly are never test batsmen, Bairstow and Buttler need a rest
No. They both need dropping permanently. Buttler is shite.

England, on a day three pitch, you would hope can chase this down.

Not a fucking chance though.

Root looks in horrific form, but at least he is fighting.

270 or eight wickets, how are the bookies pricing this?

Considering it's less than a day three pitch having lost most of day one and perfect batting conditions that could be value

Denly might not have the most talent, but at least he does not give his wicket away

A 100 partnership for England these days seems like a god like achievement.
