    I'm starting to think you almost need an 'ok' player who has real leadership quality to be effectively a dedicated captain. Morgan is a good batsman, but nowhere near the best but captain material....

    It's only day 3. The pitch still looks decent and its a nice day. At Headingley that means quick scoring.

    So probably all out for under 150. :grief:

    Stokes, or for a short term solution Broad. Both have better cricket brains than Root and more charisma too. Broad made it no secret about his desire to be captain before Root got it.

    This is Root's eighth Test against Australia. He has yet to win one. Psychologically this takes its toll. Needs to go back to being a batsman and we need to stop picking our best players as captain...

    67 all out. Wow. Incredible bowling mind, but only a few were genuinely out to jaffas.


    I still pin this on Root's captaincy - his inability to stem the runs in that period yesterday is the key...

    Absolutely disgusting batting performance by England. Only Root has had a good ball. This team is a clueless batting unit. Roy has to either drop to 5 or 6 or be dropped totally. He is completely...

    Oh absolutely - no denying that at all. But 100 could very much play 100 in the first innings. If either top order fires a little bit in the first innings they'll take control of the next Test. Low...

    Jesus, this Archer is unreal - getting faster in his 27th over hitting 96mph and absolutely clattering Smith. Smith now off due to concussion. What a battle.

    My only thought apart from Archer, spin. I know Smith is a good player of spin, but I think right arm wrist spin is the best way to consistently challenge the edge of the bat. On that basis I'd...

    Fantastic bowling - and with Anderson who is off injured. With hindsight he was clearly not fit enough for this Test. Strategy for Smith is clear - get everyone else out instead!

    Steve Smith seems to be the only one who knows how to bat across the two teams under any condition and keeps his wicket properly.

    If we're as shambolic as this, he'll be the difference.
