Saffers have mystified me today. I mean, they've tried to just bat it out rather than see if they could make us bat again, but then they've suffered from our just get out cheaply syndrome. Maybe they're banking on it pissing down tomorrow...

102-6 at stumps equates to a great day for Joe Root's lads. He played a binder.

Good win for the boys. Very comprehensive. Maharaj and Paterson showed there weren't too many demons in the pitch if there was a bit of attacking intent, which makes it all the more mysterious the way the Saffers approached it yesterday (occupy the crease for 2 days) - think they might have been better trying to set us a sneaky 100.

I lost count of the number of catches we put down, which had it still been pi$$ing down today might have cost us, but all in all a very satisfying victory.

Yep credit where its due - we finally made a score and SA buckled.

Ollie Pope looks the business and IF we can sort out the top 3 - we may actually be onto something. Bowling department looks strong to me - options all round.

Half a thousand does strange things to the mind. :-)

Pope's last three innings have been 75, 61* and 135* - hope he continues in that form - seeing him bat at the death the other night when he reverse pulled Rabada (I think it was) in consecutive balls was just like "wow"....

Yep - if you've a middle order of Stokes, Pope and Buttler coming in with the ball just a bit older and runs on the board you've gone from "collapse city" to "oh god they'll get 500 in under 2 days" territory.

The success of this side will be largely dominated by the top order - and can they stick around a bit and ensure a decent start. I feel that on a flat pitch they did well - 0 wickets before lunch on the first day etc without ever really shining or any going on to make a big score. But that was a flat pitch against SA - they still couldn't push on. Sibley looks a find for us at least - can be stubborn. Crawley full of talent but looks way off being ready to open for England regularly. And Denly is just Denly looks good - gets out.

Burns comes back in - he and Sibley might work. Perhaps eventually Crawley bats 3?

Yeah good experience for Crawley, play while Burns is out then go away and work on your game and target Denly/Sibley.

Delighted for Pope, been excited for him for a while but injury etc mean it hasn't quite happened for him. Looks the real deal though.

Will have natural ups and downs as people start making plans to get him out bit I give it a year tops before folk want to make him captain.

The main thing that'll potentially hurt him will be the inevitable clamor to push him up the order to try and plug gaps up there.

Another convincing win by a decent Enland side.

It's a resounding 'well done' from me!

"This is England's highest opening stand when batting first in a Test for 11 years. Crikey."...

Apparently the two openers were 10 and 12 last time we got to 100 without loss in the first innings! :-)

Both gone now. Hopefully this might be Denly's innings...maybe...surely one has to be?

Denly out for 27. Just as they revealed inspite of averaging a useless 31 - he also has been dropped statistically more times in his innings than anyone else currently playing.

So his paltry average also includes the highest amount of luck going.

Time to go Denly. Don't let the door hit your arse on the way out.

Oh dear; if Ben Stokes is proven to have a had Cantona moment and say what he did to a spectator, he's in the deep stuff. Provoked, no doubt, but you just can't do that as a preofessional sportsman.

Nowhere near the same league as that red bastard, but not good form and probably merits a short ban...

Edit: audible obscenity is up to 50% of match fee and 2 demerit points reported by BBC, but I'd be a bit surprised if that was meant to cover directing "four eyed cnut" at a spectator, rather than something picked up by stump/tv mikes.

About time Buttler came to the party. Nothing really dictating how he needs to bat, so he can take his pick.
