See Stokes was giving the team pep talk yesterday... 🤔🤔 New captain at the end of the ashes maybe

Not sure about a bowler being captain.
Could have a lengthy spell out injured.

Losing jimmy has been huge and stones not being available.
If they had both been fit then yes rotation would have been simpler.
Still think Curran should have played before Overton, but when all is said and done it’s been batting failures not bowling that has hampered us!

Anderson has been a huge miss. Olly Stone and Mark Wood also being injured hasn't helped either.

Feck tail end Leach should be opening.

He needs to pull his finger out. We've got about an hour and a half to get 192 runs.

The only difference between Leach and Steve Smith is the glasses

This is getting in to the tense, slight bit of hope part now and I hate it.

Oh well.
Just because my opinion differs from yours, doesn't mean mine is wrong.

Yep. Fair play to the Aussies, been better over the series so far.

Few changes needed for the 5th test now.

And yet frustratingly if they reserved an extra day for lost time due to the weather we'd be tied at 2 all now.

Its been a fascinating series to watch, some very good games of cricket.

Saying ‘fair play’ to the Aussies......?

Pains in the arse.

No point being a sore loser.

Foakes & Sibley in for Bairstow and Roy for the 5th test.

After the series is finished drop Root as captain.

Never understand that phrase - when it comes to certain teams anyway

Such a shame the Roy experiment didn’t come off. Similar when Alex hales got his chance.
Yes Sibley, Foakes and Pope in and thanks Joe but not a skipper in my view.

Roy batted well today. The signs are him, Bairstow and Buttler are all finding some form. Not enough longer form cricket to get into nick. Straight from one day into facing a world class attack in test matches is tough.
