A bit of lunchtime reading: a very lovely conversation between James Anderson and Stuart Broad, about bowling, England, bowling for England and just generally being good lads.
Ostensibly a ropey session for England, but it could have been worse. Some terrific bowling from Hasan Ali and Mohammad Abbas could have collected more than the three wickets, and it’s taken some doughty and positive batting from Alastair Cook to hold the whole thing together. Their hope will be that as the sun comes out – and it is coming out a bit – then the ball will swing less and they’ll have less cause to grope around outside off stump.
