Lords is doing what Lords does. One session you'll get an absolute bowling paradise, the climate changes and you get a veritable road. The first session of day 1 they got the bowling conditions, which we didn't get until late in their innings. That then stays when they get to bowl. It has not been a bad performance really. We showed some fight with the bat first innings, stuck to it with the ball even when the conditions went really docile, Mark Wood has shown some promise, Moeen keeps going (still got the best strike rate of any of the serious bowlers on either side)... it's not the sort of performance that demands beheadings.
I agree with that but you have to say the kiwi's have really made the most of the conditions, which doesn't always happen with the visiting team playing in the first test. Could be an interesting day.

If Ben Stokes was a league cricketer he'd turn up to games in an adidas
shell suit, baseball cap on the wrong way, white reeboks, in a maxpower
car, whith a can of diamond white in one hand and a a fag in the other.
Cracking day's play today.To an extent the summer rests on our bowlers tomorrow.

I stand by what I said.Assuming we declare and set them a tempting target, it will be a test of the bowlers to see how many Kiwi wickets they can get. And on a wicket where there is some wear and tear, it will be a test to see if our Moeen and Root can be attacking spinners. Without spinners I think it will be difficult to beat the Aussies.Bitter experience also makes me wary of saying things are so good after less than one test. We have problems atthe top end of the batting order, and The Aussies have Johnson and his gang who are seriously quick.

Cooks soooo conservative, need to bowl these out not contain for a draw
Hopefully New Zealand will buckle now, not sure how good their tail is to be honest? Enough overs in the day to get them out though.
