    Just 17 hours until the hardball stuff winds back into action.

    I have a friend on the Yorkshire CCC academy staff based at Headingley, and he tells me this is the hardest driest track he has ever seen on that square. No rain forecast throughout the 5 days, and getting hotter. Looking forward to a sustained barrage of chin music, to get the convict snowflakes whinging again. Maybe something as pulsating and dramatic as Willis’ 8-43 back in ‘81....

      That's not good, a bit of moisture and Headingly is a result pitch. A hard dry track will please the Aussies.

      An Australian Perth style batting paradise then.

      They will play Starc here anyway. So anything Archer does.... Their attack is quicker than ours.

      Starc is faster than Archer.

      Not on a dry flat top that's likely to crack up on day three.

      Warner owes the Aussies a big innings shirley, his batting contribution has been pitiful so far

      He does. But I'm sure that him and Bancroft can continue to be worked over- especially Bancroft. I think Bancroft is only there because of Smith's withdrawal. Khawaja could open if Smith returns at Manchester with Labuschagne in at four.

      England really need to step up here. I'd open with Denly and drop Roy down the order or altogether.

      Agreed. But Root, Roy, Buttler are also due some runs.
