    England have some momentum now. A first innings of 67 was inexcusable, but they showed enough determination to turn things around, and get the job done.

    On occasions like this, you need somebody...

    Archer has been superb today. He was on the receiving end of some short stuff when he batted, so nobody can complain if he gives some back.

    284 is disappointing, but it looks a bit thin without Smith's innings.

    Game on, then!

    You obviously haven't listened to Rob Key. Joe Denly is the greatest batsman ever in the history of the game, and the saviour of English cricket.

    Leach will find himself opening next week if he carries on like this!

    He's scored 45 first-class runs so far this season, at an average of 4!

    Jos Buttler is a phenomenon. He went from 51 to 100 in 15 balls (if my memory is correct, he took 45 balls to score his first 50) and then to 150 off 77 balls.

    So that's 51 to 150 in 32 balls. ...

    A 10-wicket hammering. With a batting lineup that appears to go as deep as Curran at 9, and largely the same team which beat India during the summer.

    Well done, enjoy it! The only possible downside might be England's rather poor form against Australia at Lord's. Although we probably won't lose it by Day 2.
